And we over analyze and research and price-compare and worry.
It's really tiring and inefficient. Really it sucks the joy out of any purchase.
Our latest decision up on the block ... some new plates to replace the ones received from our wedding that are now all chipped, broken and long gone. Who knew Stoneware was so ... breakable?! I guess 12 years is about their lifespan.
And I'm picky I guess. If I'm going to eat on it I don't want to feel woosy looking at the design on my plate. I almost bought a box that was on T@rget super sale Black Friday ... but the colors on it seriously left me just that, woosy. It would have been a great diet plan I guess. But I'm still glad I held off.
Here are the two choices before us right now. Of course there are millions out there and I could be swayed in an instant to something new.
This is MariBeth from Pier1. It's "Ironware" and supposedly 2 steps better than stoneware, yet, one step down from Porcelain. I like this one quite a bit ... but I don't like the bowl for it's deepness. I'll never get more than a couple into our dishwasher I fear. I've thought about getting the plates/mug and then getting some plain off-white/ivory bowls from another set to coordinate.
And then we waffle ...
This is Flo by Corelle. It's Corelle, need I say more? It's pretty super-family-durable. (The cup is stoneware.) But since it's Corelle, it's kinda lightweight feeling and maybe a bit over casual. I know, who cares. The bowl is a little boring ... hey, apparently I have a high bar set for bowls.
And here in lies us waffling again.
Anyone have a favorite they'd like to vote for and sway our opinion ... or even suggest?
