Sometimes I actually get to use the things I buy.

I co-hosted a wedding shower for a co-worker on Friday at my apartment. I was happy for the excuse to pull out some of the vintage dishes I have stashed everywhere in my house.

I have taken to stacking a mishmash of miss-matched china on the buffet table, an equally eclectic collection of glassware…

…and calling it eco-friendly. In reality — though it’s awesome that I’m reducing my carbon footprint by not using plastic dishes and cutlery — it’s just another excuse to continue buying single plates when I find patterns I love.

Shannon I saw those glasses and totally forgot to complement you on them! The shower was wonderful…you’re such a great hostess!
