My new dishes

I finally broke down and bought some new dishes.  Not that my old dishes were in really bad shape but some were chipped and had a few cracks.  I usually just get dishes in a solid color or with some kind of nice border for my every day dishes.  This time I decided to splurge and get a new design that goes with my black and cream kitchen.  I don't know, they might be too fancy for me to use everyday.


I got a place setting for 8 since it is only the hubby and I now.  I got these online from Bed Bath and Beyond.  I like that you can buy them individual in sets of 4.  I don't ever need the mugs that usually come with place sets.


I love the sunflower, bee and butterfly designs on the dishes.  This is the first time I have had square dishes.   I like how the salad plate has a different background color.


The soup/salad bowls are quite large.  I like to use these for salad only since they aren't quite deep enough for me to use them for soup.

  That is why I got the ice cream bowls.  They are smaller around but much deeper.  I like how they come with 2 black and 2 white in the set.


I will start using these this weekend.  I still need to get them washed.  I can't wait to use them.

    1. Thank you. Last night my husband said he had a bug on his plate. I told him it was only a bee. It does kind of make you look twice when you are eating.

  6. Sunflowers and bees are so summery. I like that the bowls and salad plates are different colours. Does the pattern have a name or maker?

    1. Thank you. We have been using them everyday. Last night my hubby didn't want to use a knife on them. He was afraid he would ruin them. I thought that was funny how he was concerned about the pattern.
