Blue and Green are Better Than White




White, White, WHITE! Dishes that is. I have been looking for dishes since last November. T and I found a great set at Dillard's, a Tuscan set, very nice, really loved it, but it was NEVER EVER on sale. So in total frustration I kept looking. And you know what I found.. white and more white dishes. It's not that I have anything against white and all, I just wanted color. A splash of color makes me happy. Annnnnd I want reasonably-cost-effective. Is that so much to ask for? Apparently it is! The other day I found an awesome set at Macy's; artistic, full of color, so exciting....and then I turned the plate over... $42.00 a plate! UGH!
Eureka! We went by happen stance into Pier One and they had these fine looking dishes ON SALE! Oooh... love that on sale part. Blue and Green, Solids and a Splash of fun in a few bowls. Perfect. Not the Tuscan set but absolutely in the budget. DONE. I can now have you over for dinner and you won't have a chipped mix matched dish.

I will not approve on it. I regard as precise post. Especially the designation attracted me to be familiar with the whole story.
