One Thing Leads to Another
Today I splurged. I took an advance on future garage sale earnings and bought this set of Mikasa Antique White dishes that I've been dreaming about for years. I had to buy them early so that I could sell my old dishes. I got them home, unpacked them put them in the dishwasher and realized something. Now I need new silverware. Somehow my old set seemed just fine with the old dishes but the new dishes have made it quite clear that they are not content to hang out with an old scarred set of flatware that is missing at least half of its spoons. Sweet hubby says, just buy more spoons. Silly man.
So, I've started shopping for something new and I've confirmed yet again that I have fantastic taste. You know how I know? Everything that I love is so expensive. I'm really drawn to the hotel silver sets pictured below however, I would also like to be able to send my girls to college. Maybe there's a compromise. Community college?
Pottery Barn Maxfield flatware $95.00 per place setting.
