Treasure Hunt: Days Three and Four

Yesterday was our big Sunday dinner and I usually get out the fancy china anyway, but we had a big crowd--eleven--so my mother pulled some of the Richelieu china out of the cabinet--beautiful white plates with fancy gold edges, my grandmother's china. Very nice.

Today I went the other direction and remembered some fun paper napkins in the cupboard--we only use paper for birthday parties!--and used one to set my iced tea on in the kitchen, instead of leaving wet rings everywhere.

I'm off to the city now, that's now as in nine p.m., which is an awfully late hour for me and driving, as we do better in the daylight. But I have court in the morning four hours away and need a head start, so I'm spending the night at my mother's, now that Daisy is down for the night. Oh boy.

What a great idea to use up all those paper napkin "leftovers"-- three or four each, here and there!

I also love the idea of raiding the china cabinet on a regular basis. We all know this, and it's good to be reminded that our family deserves Company Best.

Thanks for the inspiration. I have tons of silver I inherited from my mother. Time to pull it out and use it ~ I think it's a shame to keep it hidden 'til the holidays...
