Two of my close neighbors are Lebanese Christians. Both couples entertain a lot and have very opulent furniture. I’ve not noted their china but I bet it is on the scale you describe your husband would like. It must be the Mediterranean temperament.
Still adding to your dish collection I see 😉
I love that I can fill in the previous conversation for myself. This makes my day much more interesting.
A very vivid picture indeed.
We never have these conversations. I learned long ago to nod, smile and say “whatever”.
In a related matter, we are getting another dog to foster this weekend. I was out-voted 1 – 1.
