|I like this pattern, but that's a whole lotta money for as much of it as I would need!|
Aynsley Basket Weave
After nearly twelve years, my everyday dinnerware is biting the dust. It's been heading that way for a while. One piece after another has broken, cracked or chipped over the years until I'm down to quite the hodge-podge of dishes in the cupboard. When a dinner guest asked if I ever worried that my coffee mugs would shatter when hot liquid was poured into them, I knew I'd put off replacing them too long! (How embarrassing!)
|Thinking this will be the winner. It has great reviews! It's microwaveable, dishwasher safe, and very reasonably priced. You can also buy by the piece versus having to buy sets. Bingo! Most bang for my buck so far!|
Ten Strawberry St Havana Weave
|My old dinnerware from Pier 1. Loved the look, but not good for the microwave... |
and that's a must around here! I don't even think they make it anymore.
It was love at first sight when I saw my everyday dinnerware at Pier 1 years ago (swoon!). I still love it, but there is just one small problem: it does not microwave well! Some pieces get scalding hot while the food remains cold, meaning I'm afraid to pick up anything that had been heated. There's been many a burned hand:(
|Really pretty, but don't care for the size of the mugs. I'm a serious coffee drinker and so is just about everyone I have over. A mug like this just isn't practical for our everyday use.|
Oneida Westerly Basket Weave
|Nice, but a little pricey for as much as I need.|
Pillivuyt Basket Weave
|Very nice and reasonably priced, but hasn't got the greatest reviews. |
Thinking this may be one of those..."you get what you pay for" deals.
Psaltsgraff Basket Weave
|Nice, but once again, it's pricey for everyday use.|
The basket pattern has stood the test of time, though. I still love it as much now as I did then. So, I'm on a mission to find a new set of dinnerware that is a little more durable, yet has the same look and feel. I'm finding that there is quite a selection out there of white basket relief. Wha-hoo! Now, just to pick one because I need a ton of it!
Oh, and guess what is open this weekend for three days? My fabric warehouse! I feel a trip coming on:)
