Show us your life - China pattern

I remember it like it was yesterday...picking out my china and dishes. It was so much fun!!! There is a little store in my town that everyone registers at called The Gift Garden. When I got engaged I couldn't wait to go in and pick out all my stuff. In the very back of the store there are little tables with all the engaged couples and their registry items they picked out. I remember being so excited to see my table. It was like a right of passage or something. Ha!
Here is my china/ everyday dishes....

My fine china is made by Lenox and is called, Grand Central. My favorite part about it is the gold and platinum accent plate.

Below are the glasses I picked out. I LOVE them. They have these at The Gift Garden and almost all of my friends have the same ones except in different colors. They are just too pretty to pass up.
These are my everyday dishes. I love the earthy colors. They match my house perfectly. They are made in Italy by a company called Vietri.

I am also working on a collection of "Fiesta" dishes.
And I would really love a set of Christmas dishes. Maybe one day... :0)
