Mark and I didn't register for China when we were getting married. At that point in our lives, it just seemed more practical and useful to register for casual dinnerware. We registered for these dishes at Crate and Barrel. I still like them 8 years (almost 9 years) later. We were fortunate to receive all of the pieces that we selected. The ladies at our church, some friends and our parents completed the set. We use them every day and it makes me happy when I open the cabinets and see the cheerful, blue dishes neatly setting there waiting to be used. I love something that is useful and sentimental.
One other thought, I arranged the dishes in the cabinet this way 8 years ago when we moved into our home. Some friends came over and laughed when they saw it all so organized. They told me to give it a few weeks or months and they wouldn't be so neat. I may let other areas in my house get untidy but not my dishes. I love this cabinet with its order and organization.
