Okay so I feel a little ridiculous even posting this but…
When we first started our registry I knew exactly they type of dishes I was looking for. Mostly white with cobalt blue accents, somewhere in between dressy and casual for use with almost everything, and with a little twist of uniqueness without being too wacky. Well, I didn’t find it anywhere. And I really thought I looked everywhere. So, I settled.
A few months ago I picked two sets, these pretty white and red casual plates (almost everything I wanted except for the blue, and not quite unique enough), and these white, silver, and blue fine china settings (again, very close, perfect color, but a little too dressy). And I had a bridal shower, and got all of the reds I’d requested, and half of the blues, from someone near and dear to my heart.
Fast forward to today, just casually browsing the internet, and I just about die when I found these dishes at Crate and Barrel. White. blue. Funky/pretty floral accent. Neat subtle shapes. Not too fancy. Gorgeous. Me? Drooling. Exactly what I was looking for. A few months too late.
Obviously, three sets of dishes is excessive. But I don’t think I can return the others, because the giver wasn’t just some random great-aunt I’ll never see again–it was someone who will be over for dinner often and will know exactly what dishes I am using (and wonder why they aren’t the ones she gave me, although she would be too polite to ask). But I have never been more in love with a set of dishes in my life!
Why oh why couldn;t I have found these earlier? Is there anything to be done? Or should I just resign myself to the fact that after all, they are just dishes?
[Okay, so this is mostly a rhetorical post, I KNOW I have to get over it. They ARE just dishes. Just venting, is all!]
