Mr’s mom gave us a set of dishes for our wedding, 8 years ago. Sadly, they only lasted about 7 years. Various breakings, cracks, and stains ruined them, so we’ve been looking for a new set of dishes for a few months. We looked diligently at the Goodwill, spent an afternoon at antique shops, and scanned yard sales. Finally, a few weeks ago, we found this fantastic set at a yard sale just a few streets away. The lady who sold it to us said they had been in her family for years. They’re such a bright white with sunny yellow flowers and accents.
It’s funny to see how dishes have changed over time. We couldn’t find any bowls at the antique store. None! What’s with that? And the dishes I saw at yard sales, the ones made in the 70s and 80s, have much smaller plates and bowls. Food portions must have been much smaller back then. That’s ok with us. I eat about 5 small meals a day, so it’s really no problem.
