We really really wanted our clothing steamer, completion of our knife set (we got about 2/3 of it) and wine glasses (we got less than 1/2 of them).

And of course more cash! I wish more people had given us $ instead of being creative and going off our registry.

@clarebee:OMG we got a weird silver platter too! Of course I registered for several nice platters, one silver acutally and received all of them but a group of 3 guests gave us this huge weird tarnished silver platter and gave me some long lecture on how to polish it. It was obviously used and clearly being regifted as one of them was going through a divorce. I wanted to say “You could have just give me the $50..”

we got this set of decorative baking dish ware with trivets and cute baskets and lids from QVC.  It was a set of like 25 items!  I certainly dont’ need 10 more baking dishes so we kept 2 sets and gave the rest away.  I felt bad but we seriously have no more room and 2 is plenty!

I also got this strange vase from my Mother-In-Law for my shower.  I couldn’t return it and it was a rectangular, black/white pottery vase with an off center hole for the flowers.  straight to goodwill!

Our KitchenAid stand mixer! Yep, we totally bought it for ourselves after the wedding 🙂
