Now, years ago I was into Denby and have a collection of their Harlequin dishes. I never, ever use the mugs, they just sit and look pretty in the pantry.
And, as an about to be bride, I chose a lovely pattern from Wedgewood for our fine dining, Medici. They look pretty darn good for their age, there's a reason for that. Brought the cups out of the cabinet into the pantry, no help at all. They just sit there wondering why they have been demoted.
My china of choice that I use absolutely everyday, at least twice a day, the perfect size and the perfect weight. The mug that is large enough to warm both my hands and fine enough to not overheat in the microwave is this wonderful, white, oversized something.
Do you do anything like this, or am I the only one getting a little bit weird??
