These "babushkups" have been sitting on my desk for a year waiting to be photographed. I bought them a year ago at Sur la Table as a gift for myself and my sister-in-law. They are the kind of thing that I love so much I'm not sure if I can use them. It reminds me of when I buy tablecloths at the flea market. When they are stained I feel free to use the heck out of them and I get a lot of enjoyment from them. But when they are pristine they end up stacked on a shelf in the cupboard never to be seen. I guess the best way to appreciate something is to use it. I may use them as pencil holders or I may just bite the bullet and use them as drinking glasses! Crazy, I know.
