The wonderful little estate liquidation elves in Colorado report that we are ready to list the china dinnerware.
Here’s the story on this, which I recommend for all young people out there who are setting up a home. Go on eBay and buy super-cheap antique china in used, incomplete sets. My china was actually two seperate incomplete sets that complemented each other beautifully. I got them for a song, they looked great, were used as daily drivers, and even put into the dishwasher. You can TOTALLY put china in the dishwasher – the only rule is that if there is gold or platinum decoration (mine both have gold decoration) you cannot use the heated dry setting on the dishwasher, but I NEVER used the heated dry setting anyway, so it was a non-issue. China is very strong, beautiful and practical, and used, incomplete sets (generally antique) are about the same price as new ceramic sets, and look like a million bucks.
So there’s my little home decor tip.
Many, many thanks to one and all for your continued munificence. I don’t say thank you here nearly enough, although I do pray for all buyers and benefactors specifically every day. I am very well, with dear friends, and snug as a bug in a rug.
And I still have the fire in mah belly. Grrrrr!
My eBay handle is 720ann.
