Yesterday I posted about the Matchbook Magazine feature about a sweet tea party in my garden. See the feature here. Above is a photo from the party, which features piece of china that belonged to my great-great grandmother. My parents gave me the china when I got married last year, and frankly I haven’t used it. The china is so precious to me, as it is a piece of my family history, and I am terrified of anything happening to it. After all these years, it is no longer a complete set, and I don’t want to contribute to the loss of any more pieces! However, after seeing the beautiful photos, I realized I had to find a stress free way to put these special pieces to good use. And figure out a way to follow my own entertaining advice about using the good china.
So, I took the plunge and mounted them on the wall. Which, I will add, is something I never thought I would do. But I am thrilled with the results. This way I can see this piece of my family history everyday, without worrying.
