I love this! I use depression glass plate everyday. They are colorful AND smaller than modern ones which helps portion control. Recycle! Use antiques and have fun!

I have my great-great-grandmother's blue and white Chinese teapot, finger bowls, cups and saucers that traveled from Scotland to Canada by ship, then by wagon to Ohio and Washington Territory, then by truck to New York City, Texas, Illinois, Wisconsin and finally to me in Minnesota. I use them often.

I have some beautiful flow blue china that was my great grandmother's. My mom always used it instead of just showing it in a display cabinet so I do, too.

Anyone wanna see my floral teacup collection?

Yes! I'm still patiently waiting for the moment I can somehow transport my grandmother's Japanese china set from Indiana to New York -- she was given it on her wedding day and it has the most incredible ivy pattern.

I love love love my great grandmother's depression era pink glass collection that I have inherited. I use the water pitcher all the time and it's just gorgeous - adds a bit of whimsy to the table. Also there are a few tiny appetizer serving trays that I'll set out with condiments (including the miniature pewter salt and pepper shakers). They don't have flowers but they're still retro-cool.
