We are the proud owners of this little beauty. A hand painted wine decanter set complete with little glasses that were also hand painted.
As the weather starts to cool down, I like to put sherry in the decanter. And at Christmas I like to have port in the house. Using these glasses is a great way to have just a bit of alcohol.
We keep it on the same stand that it was kept on in my in-laws house, and they kept it on the same stand that it was on in the house my mother-in-law grew up in. Wish I knew more about it. When did her family use it? What did they drink? My husband tells me it was kept in the dining room. Period. No fun family stories.
In the years to come, my children will have stories to tell their children and (I hope) some of the stories will be about what we were doing when we were using "Grandma Joy's" wine decanter set.
