One of the first things that I've wanted to update are my dishes. I wanted to do this for two reasons. The first reason is that I hated my dishes. They are Corelle plates that I picked up at an auction at a time when I needed to have lots of plates for teenage boys and their many friends who also seemed to occupy our home. They were the original green and brown banded plates...very 70's and very outdated. The second reason is that I'm realizing that all the articles that tell you to eat on salad plates because you eat smaller portions are right. I had decided that what I wanted were just salad plates.I wanted something fun and colorful and I didn't need an entire set ( I have coffee mugs out the ying yang!), and I got just what I wanted! The pattern on these gorgeous salad plates is 'Hot Tamale'. The are by Certified International and I got a set of 4 8.5" salad plates. What I love about these is that they are ceramic, gorgeous and microwave and dishwasher safe. They are also hand painted, so they have that crafty feel to them that I love!
8 Sorrrento 6' plates. They come in a couple of colors, so they are fun and festive on your counter. I have found that they are perfect for when you just want to grab a snack and don't need a big plate. I keep them close to the microwave, and they are quick and easy. They are also dishwasher and microwave safe.
I have to tell you that I love, love, love these new additions to my kitchen. I have a few more things to tell you about in the next couple of days, so stay tuned!
