^ The British make souvenir china to mark royal milestones--coronations, jubilees, weddings, what have you. I believe Emma Bridgewater did a mug for the Queen's jubilee ...

Being a messy eater is no problem, you just throw the napkin directly into the wash

hmm the toilet paper in the table has happened to me too, sometimes i forget them when i go to get the groceries but ive forgotten tp too so i have to say ive switched tp and pt both ways

i fell into the dollar store bandwagon too, here are lots of them and expanding by the day, i used to live within a 100 yards of one and i couldnt resist to shop there everyday, i equipped my whole kitchen with that, plastic glasses, plates, bottles, everything you can imagine, i even found the best scissors ive ever tried (even for thick denim). but one thing that wasnt too pleased is that, we dont pay in dollars, we pay the equivalent in mexican pesos but if the value of us dollars got down we still payed for the value before it went down

I need to get me some of those Coronation plates. I've always found Princes William and Harry rather yummy

Our plates are just white so quite boring! But I do have some vintage saucers that I have collected from charity shops. I really want to get a Cath Kidston dinner set at some point.

When she was alive, my great-grandmother was completely and utterly infatuated with Pfaltzgraff "Tea Rose" dinnerware. No one knows exactly why she loved that pattern so much, but throughout the years she managed to get her hands on everything available - down to every little spoon rest and tea kettle - leading to the largest collection of dinnerware my family and I had ever seen.

My great-grandmother passed away a few years ago, and when she did every "Tea Rose" piece she owned was passed on to me. We're talking six large boxes full of dishes, practically enough to open a Pfaltzgraff museum. I don't think I'll ever have to shop for a dish in my life. What would we do without great-grandmothers...

^ I hadn't heard of Tea Rose, had to look it up ... here's a salad plate:



Pfaltzgraff make fantastic dishes for every day ... I had a friend who had that blue pattern they're known for, and my mother has some in the brown variation. Her husband loves it.

Lovely delicate pattern, Zarina ....

We generally just use a set of plain white, ceramic bowls/plates we have, as we are prone to breakages in our houe (My younger sister once dropped an entire set of dinner plates, my mother was not impressed). There is a gorgeous china tea set my parents got for a wedding gift that is strictly for formal occassions only - when my mum can keep a careful eye over it! We also had some great crystal wine glasses and champagne flutes, but I think most of those have gotten broken over the years. When my grandmother passed away we inheritted her not inconsiderable dining, sliver, serving and glass ware collection too, so we won't be running out any time soon

This is Fire King jadite Shell from the 60s ... I have service for 9+ in this, collected a few pieces at a time ... this is not dishwasher safe. (This is glass, not china, btw.)
