One of our Christmas presents the first year after we got married was a 20 piece place setting of some Christmas china. The idea was that every year we would be able to add some pieces to the china.
But, the next year the company discontinued the pattern.
A couple of years ago, I discovered that some of the pieces were available on ebay. But I never was brave enough actually to bid on anything.
This year I did.
Today the pieces came. This is how they looked.
It seems that some other things may be broken this Christmas, too. But, I'm working on them.
