There certain things that I avoid like the Plague..
Pottery Barn is one of them.
Not because I don't LIKE it, but because I DO.
I swear if I won the Lottery (which I don't play) I would have my house look like the inside of Pottery Barn catalogs. I am filled with absurb longing when I look at those catalogs. I used to be the same way about Williams-Sonoma.....
And I was wasting time looking at stuff that I can't buy...truly a waste of my time.
And I saw these:
I am an absolute sucker for plates! Especially holiday plates. I saw these ones at Target today, they were CANDY CANE shaped...oh but I digress.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Well, Christmas is THE most important holiday but I have been so disappointed by the Commercial HiJacking of the Holiday Season. Thanksgiving is not as hijacked as Christmas, but darn close. (Seriously considering giving up TV for the 6 weeks between TG and New Year's....)
But back to the plates. I am a sucker for plates. I love cute designs. I love different colors. For someone who is a notorious fashion chromophobe, I really let loose with my plates.
But then...I buy then, and don't use them. They're too cute to use.
Am I silly or what? Hey, if you're really nice, I"ll show you my collection of hodge-podge Christmas plates. I keep threatening to have a Cookie Party. Put all of my mismatched plates out on a bright red table and load 'em with cookies and invite everyone I know to stop by and have a Cookie....
