Sunday Dishes: Protest!

I'm often told I have too many dishes. I wholeheartedly dispute that claim.

Last night at 6:30, we ran out of clean dinner plates.

Here's the empty hole where the plates are supposed to live.

This simply can't continue. More dishes must be bought at once!

It must be snowing down under (Hell) if I was to ever run out of clean dinner plates. The 2 or 3 times I went to the outlet sale at the factory, they were selling dinner plates 4 for $1. At one time, I think I counted 55 plates and that was at least 5 colors back (so add at least 5 to that number)! I took out the best quality ones and stored them in boxes. I am not worried about scratching up the ones I use now, I know there is a better set waiting.

OMG!!!! 4 for $1?!?!?!? I just HAVE to visit the outlet sale! I'm going to have to make the pilgrimage to the factory one of these years.

I thought I did pretty good a few weeks ago at the antique mall. I bought 2 persimmon dinner plates and 2 seamist salad plates for $3 and $2, respectively. That mall had lots and LOTS of the seamist salads scattered in booths throughout the mall. They looked so caged kittens waiting to be adopted.
