Pretty Plates

22 Aug

You know how you know you’re a grown up?

You’re a grown up when new plates make you a little giddy. Oh, and you don’t know what channel MTV is.

But this is about the plate thing.

Look! Pretty!

See those lovely scalloped edges peeking out in that stack o’plates? Those were an early birthday gift for myself, purchased this weekend at anthropologie.

Here’s a closeup:

They remind me of doilies, but the gray color keeps them from being too precious.

I snagged them on sale (don’t you just want to live in that little sale room at the back of the store?) and used my 15 percent off birthday savings card for even more of a discount.

Note: I tend to use the “birthday gift” excuse for anything pretty I purchase in the month of August. Does anyone else do that?

Here’s a shot of dinner on the new plate:

goat cheese asparagus pizza

It’s a goat cheese, spinach and asparagus flatbread on naan bread. I know I should leave the food photography to my talented friend Amanda, but I wanted you to see the plate in action (and also know that naan bread pizza is Ah-Mazing).

So that’s the story  of the new pretty plates. What have you bought lately that puts a smile on your face?
