And at Easter you could put painted eggs or (Easter Eggs)round the edge and pile chocs in the middle!

great idea:).....there is all sorts of interesting plates and other bits and pieces in the cabinet that I really should try and use now and again its just a strange feeling cause the things that were in there as a child were to be looked at but not touched and if they did come out you were to dam scared to go near them in case one broke even if you were just staring at them on the table...silly really

Have to agree there. I have a mixing bowl which is hand potted. it belonged to my sons great Grandmothers great grand mother! It has a fine hairline crack through it, but I still use it and if it breaks, well, I have had the pleasure of using it. I also collect teacups,suacers and plates and love using them,especially a mixture of different designs.

I also have just been given one of these by my MIL.
she got it for a wedding present and has never used it.

I would be over 60 yrs old now.
And in ex condition.

Not sure if i would ever use it though.
