Inspired Heart Practice

new wine glasses
Today's Inspired Heart practice is about wine glasses, wine and getting it right .
Glasses in my home come and go.
I've been married for over 35 years, with two children and countless animals.
Having a matching glass would be a treat.
I have decided that it's time to go back to the basics of setting up a home.
After all I am an adult now with children gone from my home.
I should have matching glassware.
I consulted Emily Post on this matter and below is her list for glassware every home should have.
6 juice glasses
8 or 12 old-fashioned or one the rocks glasses
8 or 12 wineglasses
8 or 12 iced tea or highball glasses
and you should also keep on the ready for guests,
Now keeping in mind I truly do not have the space for the variety she has listed.
I'm going to start with wine glasses.
In my cabinets are a random amount of wine glasses. Some are souvenirs of places I've visited
and others have holiday designs on them.
Well, OUT WITH THE OLD!!!
I just bought a small box of 4 red and white wine glasses.
Simple, clean, study wine glasses, with short stems. No designs,
NO PAINTED STATEMENTS.
This goes along with all the de-cluttering and clearing out I'm doing.
Interesting enough just this morning I find an article about California Wines. Unfortunately for me one of my favorite wines is on this list .
Lawsuit Claims California Wines Contain Dangerous Arsenic Levels
Wineries deny allegations, insist their products are safe and plaintiffs' research is flawed
