Ok, so its not Baccarat. I ordered 12 of these from Target. (shh- don't tell anyone) Classic cut crystal style without being too overboard with flowers and butterflies at just the right price.
The seed of this purchase got started after my 2 year long lust for beautiul antique silver sets has been quieted by my practical side. Real silverware is just beautiful to look at and can't be matched by plain ol' stainless. Unfortuntely, real silver needs to be polished and who am I kidding? Thankfully real crystal only needs an occasional rinse with water to stay looking good.
I hope I won't be disappointing anyone to share that I don't own matching set of dishes (formal or otherwise) to go with the pretty glasses. My white plates from Kmart will have to suffice until I find a set Im really in love with. But frankly, the plain white plates seem to be serving just fine and Ive yet to have a guest turn the plate over to see who makes it. So I suppose Ill be leaving that mark of proper adulthood for another time. :)
What mark of adulthood have you put off?
