Wine Glasses

I know I shouldn't complain- I GET it that I am lucky to have Dr. J AND that he washes dishes- but early on in our marriage my dreams of having nice wine glasses was shattered.
Literally. One…after…the other.
I usually buy a box of Ikea glasses to replace and count myself lucky when they are broken while being washed and not straight after filling up with red wine.
I can still swoon over beautiful designer glasses like these by Calici Caratteriali 

Maybe we should stick to less delicate wine glasses like these: Govino Wine Glasses 

made from a proprietary, food/pharmaceutical safe PETG, only it is superior in that it reflects the wine's color and aromatics much like crystal. It is recyclable, but more importanly, it is reusable.

Do you use 'nice' (read expensive) wine glasses?

I suppose I use medium priced wine glasses. I don't use crystal for everyday but they are nice, from Pier One!

HAHA-John once actually hid a broken glass out on our fire escape, only to have me discover it when I stepped outside! I buy Crate and Barrel glasses on the cheap so I don't feel so crushed when they're all, well, crushed!

we used to, but alas, mine shattered as well (one time cutting a big vein in my hand and causing a serious bleeding session where I almost went to the emergency room!). Now we drink red wine (nice or not) out of mason jars. Call me classy....
