I can now say I know exactly why she, and so many others, have fallen in love with these dishes. They're bright white, very simple, but at the same time pack a punch. My pictures do NOT do these pieces justice, and there are actually quite a few more I never got around to photographing.
Sure, the following is probably considered a tea cup, but since I mostly drink coffee I'm calling these my new, dainty coffee cups!
Do you see the beautiful swirly pattern? I love it!
And there are dessert plates, but since I rarely partake of the sweet stuff, I put some sauteed zucchini on one.
That same night I had pasta with my homemade sauce and a huge plop of ricotta.
Doesn't my simple meal look gorgeous against that bright white?
This awesome set also came with S&P shakers, napkin rings, a gorgeous serving bowl which didn't make it... it was in pieces when I opened the box (Waaaaaaaaaaaaa)... and a small serving platter.
Michael, I don't know how to thank you enough. This giveaway was just above and beyond in every way possible! These have since become my everyday dishes and I will think of you often as I sit down to eat, or... blech... wash them after dinner!
Now everyone, go give Michael a visit because she's got some other incredible giveaways coming up shortly! Her blog is such complete eye candy you might even forget to enter yourself into the giveaways. Which would be fine by me. More chances for me to win another!
Pssst! If you love me, you might love my
