    Perhaps it's a strange thing to 'collect', but we have a passion for beautiful tables, and for the joy of everyone around a dinner table. And if the table shows off my collection to feast the eyes, everyone forgives the occasional faux pas in my slightly less than world-class cooking skills. With the Holidays approaching, THIS is my favorite collection to draw from now. We love to layer sets of complimenting fine china (Minton, Worcester, Limoges, Copeland, Coalport - just to name a few) and to change out the sets of fine French sterling silver and compliments of knives, too. Just wanted to share!

      well, call me nuts too, but I love to use my fine china, crystal, and sterling flatware. Holidays are especially a good time to decorate with these settings.
      I love to mix and match and create and make it a special time.
      You go girl!!

      I agree with you cis2you. I use my "good stuff" on all holidays and sometimes just because the mood hits me. That is why I have it, to use it. I know a lot of people who would be horrified. *LOL* My favorite is the first set. Just gorgeous!

      I use the seldom, but they are not as extense as your collection. I published some of my tables because racer4 asked me once. Compliments.
