A few years ago I decided I wanted to switch out our retro 70’s dish set with something different. Then a couple of years ago my husband expressed the same thing. Yay! He took photos of a few plates at Daiso while he was out of town, and I spotted a different one in the photos that I liked. Was it porcelain? Were there other pieces so I could create a set? Blank stares…I looked at other locations on other visits and found nothing. As I started looking around, I found I was drawn to modern vintage flowered patterns. But…they were either super expensive or discontinued, and mostly from England and Japan. Can you say expensive PLUS overseas shipping?!!! Ack!! I was feeling pretty hopeless and about to give up and settle with something that wasn’t really my style, when Pioneer Woman came out with her line a couple of weeks ago. A lot of her line is mostly my style, so I thought maybe I could piece together a set from the line. Then…when we were visiting his parents again over the weekend, I asked which Daiso store is the LARGEST..and FINALLY found my new pretty dishes!!!! I ended up choosing a different pattern than the original one I fell in love with, which was more of an English style. I shocked even myself! 🙂
The best part? Husband approved, which also surprised me. He knows I’ve been discouraged though, so maybe that was part of it?! I picked the green cups with him in mind, and I actually love the combo! 🙂
Sometimes you have to get creative when you can’t find what you want or need, so I made my own set!
I LOVE them!!
I love, love, love them!!!
My cupboard looks so pretty now! And our Ikea bowls are a good match. 🙂
Bye bye old 70’s dishes!
Now I have pretty, everyday dishes that I love as much as our shamrock china!! 🙂
What do you think?
