we’ve been using the same dinnerware for about 8 years now (i’m getting old!) and am ready to look for something new. every single one of our plates and bowls have a chip or crack in it somewhere (i’m working with this set). so, i’m thinking that new dinnerware might be the perfect thing to ask for this christmas! (hint hint david!) my instincts automatically sent me straight to etsy to browse for beautiful handmade dinnerware.
