The "good" dishes

How many of us have certain items in our house that we absolutely love, but can't bring ourselves to use? Lately I have been running into this quite a bit...

Sets of dishes pushed to back of a cabinet, clothes stuffed into the back of a closet, furniture covered with an old sheet, quilts that never see the light of day...

What is the point of having these things if no one ever sees or uses them? Yes, dishes can break, furniture can fade, and clothes can get stained if they are actually worn. But things are meant to be used and enjoyed, not stashed away never to see the light of day.

One of my clients is dealing with sorting through his house after the death of his wife. He is stunned to learn how much stuff she had that he never remembered seeing or using...4 sets of china, 3 sets of silverware, tons of linens - none of which they ever used that he can recall. "Why did she have all this if we never used it?"
