I bought some imperfect shot glasses from ebay (chip on one, a bubble in another). I like that they look used, and the scale is good--they are a tad large (like brandy glass size) but I was unable to think of a cheap way to get glasses otherwise that had the look I want. (There were some gorgeous Venetian cranberry glasses with stems and gold rims that were just what I wanted... but they were also four inches tall :( ) Still need more cutlery and napkins..I'm working for service for 8 eventually, ignoring the fact that one of the guests has no clothes, another has no head..well, not attached, anyway; and I don't have a real table or chairs yet. :D
Of course Stripey wants to join in: "What are we doing, Boss?"
