Out with the old and in with the NEW!

After years of grateful service, I have traded in my old Corelle Ware. It has served my family well. I've been looking for just the right set to make the replacement. I have seen many, but most are so HEAVY. My mom and I were at Ikea heading to the exit. We took a wrong turn and ended up in the dishes section and there they were. (if this scene were in a t.v. show this is the moment when the unseen choir would sing "AAAAHHHH") They called my name and I was immediatley drawn to them. But, before I could get too excited, they had to meet certain criteria.
#1-the weight test (PASS)
#2-do they have serving bowls and a platter (PASS)
#3-can I buy additional plates and bowels besides the pre-packaged sets (PASS)
#4-are they affordable (PASS)
#5-can I convince hubby I needed them (PASS, of course. And since it's almost my birthday I had that to fall back on!)
#6- a bonus. They came packaged in a serving of 6! Most are 4. (PASS)

So, we had a winner!! The color is perfect and it matches so many of my other dishes. I love them. I'm glad we took that wrong turn in Ikea........

Wow! I took a chance and clicked on your link and was taken back with surprise! 2 new posts. Yeah! Love the plates. I need to make a trip to Ikea. I'll have to get with Kim on that. Then again maybe I should wait til I am out of the toddler stages before I introduce non plastic ware. :o) Might be a while...As for the bread...YOu can go ahead and send me a loaf. I won't even tell Kim. :o)

Very cute! I love green! So I'm not the only who gets turned around in IKEA? The few times I've been in there I feel like I'm in a maze! I end up walking the entire store before I find the exit.

Keep the posts coming! Love ya!
