I was recently inspired by my friend J. ( from In the Gutter) who wrote a blog post titled "A Penny Saved... is a Missed Opportunity" that begins with the sentence "What are you saving your China for?". It is a good post and you all should head on over and read it. She has inspired me to use my good China more often than just special holidays.

When Olivia asked me today if she could use my "vewy spesal pwates" (very special plates) for her tea party and she added the phrase "I be vewy vewy caweful mommy" (I'll be very very careful mommy) I decided to let her go for it.

I would first like you to notice her stunning outfit. She chose a theme of "stripes" today. Lovely isn't it? I expect it to be all the rage in Hollywood soon. I think the too-small shirt adds a level of style that could be hard for mere mortals to attain.

Olivia very carefully went to my China cabinet and picked out one cup and one plate.

She requested cucumbers and "real tea" (aka dash of tea with large amounts of milk and some sugar mixed together) for her snack.

She enjoyed herself immensely and I enjoyed watching her take such pleasure in my China.

After all it IS going to be hers one day. I got it from my mom who got it from my grandma... I'll be very impressed if it makes it out of my house all in one piece :)

Thanks for the inspiration J!
