While my family and I were out at a second-hand shop, I found a lovely set of dishes at a bargain price :)
When washing china/fragile dishes, I put a thick hand-towel in the bottom of the sink to prevent any casualties :) I also used a crocheted washcloth. (If you make your own, be sure the yarn is 100% cotton!)
~This year my sister started playing violin--and figured it out rather quickly since she knows how to play piano/read notes. So I'll get out my guitar & we'll play songs together often, which is a fun time.
