I also pulled down this beautiful teacup and spoon that my former boss gave it to me. Until recently, it had only sat on a shelf to be looked at and never used. And to give you an idea of how long it was there. It's from the job I left in 2002 and my boss gave it to me sometime prior to that - probably around 2000 as either a birthday or secretary's day gift. He always gave nice gifts to the ladies in the office and we really appreciated his thought and generosity. I'm glad I finally dusted it off and used it.
