I learned this the hard way. After so many times of carelessly 'dropping' the utensils into the pitcher that the stress was too much and it now has a large crack running from top to the underside. :-(
In the dressing area I also use miscellaneous transferware pieces for storage. Here, pretty bobby pins are displayed in a salt cellar.
p/s I'll be joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays, Beverly at Pink Saturday, Susan at Met Monday Cindy at Romantic Home, Stephanie Lynn at Under the Table and Dreaming, Bowl Full of Lemons, Cielo at House in the Roses, and of course Donna at Funky Junk Interiors and Gail at Decorating My Tin Shack.
