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 tumblers 
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,
goblets
wineglasses
liqueur glasses
champagne glasses 

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
