January 2, 2008 - Out with the old, in with the new
A few years ago I bought 8 plain white plates to use on Christmas morning. (My every day dishes were Pfaltzgraff Yorktown and they aren't Christmas-y at all.)
This year on Christmas morning my husband declared that he really liked the plain white plates and we should retire our 23 year old Pfaltzgraff dishes. I am starting to suspect a conspiracy to remove all things blue from our home. We replaced the blue living room furniture with brown leather, now we have replaced the blue Yorktown dishes.
We drove to the Corelle outlet on New Years Day and behold, they were having a 40% off sale on open stock Corelle. So now we have a complete set of plain white Corelle. I am keeping all the serving pieces from the Pfaltzgraff collection, though. We can't totally eliminate blue!! I will not allow it!!
Daniel will take the old dishes when he moves into his apartment this August so they will have a second life.
