Family legend is that during the depression one of Dad’s uncles was homeless. He was also an etcher of glass and if someone let him stay the night in their home he’d give them an etched juice glass as a way of saying thanks. Mom and Dad ended up with a set of 8 of these tiny, beautiful glasses. One remains unetched.

I am in full glassware envy.
I love them but I am always afraid to use them.
I love them too. I would so drink bourbon on ice out of that.
We drink our special-occasion-only-a-thimbleful-allowed single-malt scotch out of them on only very special occasions. We use our Mad Men glassware for the bourbon on ice.
And I hope your next post is on the Mad Men glassware.
Want. And use them!
