tablescape thursday's

in one of her earlier posts, Susan suggest us to use all of our tablewares.
well, I have this "soupware" (can you call it so?) since 25years..
a weeding gift from dear friends.
during the years 2 of the 6 soup plate has broken and as we are 6 or 8 at dinner
I actually never used them!
it is a pity, specially because of the round soup tureen.that contains a lot! :))

the other day we were only 4.. so why not make a soup, why not use it!
