The great thing is that I had wonderfully generous students and their parents that spoiled me rotten on teacher appreciation day with gift cards to set up my new house/apartment (at that time I was trying to buy a duplex). So, it means that I have tons of gift cards to Pier 1, Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, etc. to set up my new place. I would never be able to afford all this stuff otherwise, so I am quite excited.
I picked out my “dinnerware”. I really hate that term. I wanted all white plates so that I could accessorize however I want. Plus, I just really like the way food looks with a white background. I guess I’ve watched too much Food Network! 🙂 It’s a fairly cheap set, but I’m okay with that- I will break them anyways! 🙂
