Home plate

Well, this is certainly not a post I anticipated.

Shannon over at Rocks In My Dryer is debating on what to do with her china that she registered for when she and her husband got married. It's beautiful. I mean, REALLY beautiful, but she has *never* used it. Her dilemma is: toss (ebay)or save (pass onto her daughter)? I, for one, would keep it.

Anyway, so she pulled out her camera and started taking pictures of her dishes and asked that we reciprocate. Personally, I think she wants us all to look a-fool with her, and since I'm always willing to help out my fellow fool, here goes.

Our everyday dinnerware the hubs and I registered for 2 1/2 years ago; we eat off them EVERY night unless we're camping:

When we camp I use the plastic, day-glo green plates, bowls and 32 oz. cups you find at Walmart for $1.97. Of course, I can't find a picture.

This is the set my parents use for their everyday dining and I think it will always remind me of my mother:

Her formal dinnerware is beautiful and of course I don't have a picture.

Lately, I've been eyeing some tuscan-style plates:

Anyone else craving Shrimp Carbonara?

I also like the new Tuscan designs for plates. Too bad I don't need any more dishes at all!

Thanks for sharing. I like your selections!

WHERE did you find those Tuscan style dishes?? I really like them. If I could wave my magic wand, Tuscan-kind-of-Mediterranean would be the theme of my dining room. ;)
