Show us Your Life - China Patterns!

I LOVE dishes.  Serving dishes, plates, bowls, you name it, I want it.  When I think of moving into a larger house someday - the idea of more kitchen storage makes me giddy - I want more kitchen stuff!!!

Hubby and I had a great time registering.  But, I only believe that because I researched for months to find the perfect of everything online.  I would email him all day long, "Do you like this?  How about this?".  So all the hard work was done before the day we registered.  If you aren't married, I totally recommend it!
Anyway, we chose Waterford's Ballet for our fine china.  We wanted something that we both loved (which meant nothing too swirly or girly for hubby's taste), and something timeless that we thought we would still want to pull out for company in 20 years.  This fit the bill for us!  It makes me happy just looking at these dishes!

See the blue accent plate?  It comes in black, blue, mint green and pink.  I want them all!  I mean, could you imagine having the pastel colors for Easter dinner?  Oh my goodness - LOVE!

I just love the pattern.

The veggie dish.  I didn't get this - but I am going to buy it for myself someday.  I just love it!

And, because I can't help is the crystal that we chose.  Waterford's Lismore Essence.  It's more modern and lighter than traditional Waterford, and I can put them in the dishwasher.  Although, I haven't really tried that yet.  I'm scared : )  But, they are fairly durable, which is great for me, because I am accident prone.

And last, but not least, here are our dinner dishes.  They are only carried at Dillard's, and they were the only ones that hubby and I both really loved.  I am so very happy that we chose them, we use them everyday!  They have kind of a Tuscan look, which I think is really fun!

Am I the only one that is this crazy about dishes?  I can't wait to see your dishes!
Thanks for stopping by!
