I knew I loved the MotH* when he purchased a set of Johnson Brothers Old Britain Castles (pink) for me. Since then, his lovely parents have added to my set to include all kinds of serving bowls and this year from my dear dear mother-in-law, a beautiful trivet. The trivet features Windsor Castle - it's great and I'll be leaving it out.
You should always use your good china - why keep it hidden away?
