Pretty White Dishes
I hate my dishes. They're matte grey stoneware from Ikea. They're man dishes. We also have a set of 4-colour rainbow dishes from Walmart because even Kevin started to hate the grey. Now I think he's indifferent, but I'm on a mission for change! I want white! Preferably white ironstone like my little thrift-store pitcher. So I'm not just going to pick up a box of Corelle from Walmart to satisfy my white dish craving. I grew up with white Corelle.
But I don't know where to even start looking. Superstore has plain white dishes for $1.00 each that would be suitable. However, I don't want to just snap up the first cheap option I find. They'll be chipped in a week!
I can't afford anything fancy (like Sophie Conran...I've been wanting it for years). Should I collect mis-matched white pieces from thrift/antique stores?
We also need new glasses. The ones we got for our wedding are cloudy and drive me crazy. Any suggestions?
