After grumbling to myself about the clutter on my kitchen counter tops, I had a huge epiphany. I decided that there was really no need to have 68 cups and saucers in my display cupboard. So, I proceeded to pull them all out and sort them. I concluded that 28 of my favourites was an ample number to have quick access to just in case company stops in for tea, or for personal family use. The rest will be boxed up in the basement where they can stay until I need them. You just never know when you might them all, and I figure once a year I can change out the selection in the cupboard to rotate through them all. Problem solved! Now I have extra room to store all the teapots and serving dishes that were cluttering up my counter tops. Now........If only I had a big rough tote or two to store these extras in, I can use my table again.
