Eatin' on Ito

It was time, actually way past time, to update our everyday dishes.  The Corelle pattern we had served us well for over 10, maybe 15 years, and possibly two moves.  Though the pieces were still in very good condition, they no longer matched our taste or style... and hadn't for quite some time.  So over the last few years I have been looking and shopping for just the right thing - and I found it in the Ito pattern by Crate & Barrel.  But I hesitated, a long time, because it wasn't sturdy, common Corelle, but actually china!  Really, china for everyday!  How frivolous!  But I checked it out carefully, over and over again, anytime I was within a mile or two of a Crate & Barrel.  It was lightweight, almost as light as Corelle, and sturdy, not a delicate fine china.  And most importantly, I loved the pattern and style.  So when C & B had their Memorial Day sale, I went for it, and I'm so happy with my decision.  It looks great in our kitchen and especially against our black kitchen table.  I added some cereal bowls in white from the Madison pattern, also at C & B, and we are set.

Love it. And you've had them at least since we moved to Rensselaer so that means it's been at least 18 years and I'd say probably more like 20 which is WAY too long!

I love my new dishes! They have flowers on them! They match my taste (well, whatever food I eat on them tastes good!)
