When I got married, I received plenty of gifts from my registry list…and plenty of gifts that I guarantee you never appeared on ANYONE’S registry EVER. (I count among those, a certain miniature soapstone goose, and a curious trio of plastic fish magnets.) One of the unregistered-for-but-very-much-appreciated- just-the-same gifts, was a lovely set of Limoges appetizer plates that I still enjoy using: They’re delicate, whimsically painted, and at four or five inches in diameter, just perfect for serving a small wedge of cheese, a few crackers, or olives.
Today I was making my usual, compulsive foray into T.J. Maxx and spotted a similarly-sized collection of plates and bowls from designer Cynthia Rowley – decidedly less expensive than Limoges, but just as “appetizing.”
Anyone else out there receive a classically-awful wedding gift? Can you top a fish magnet? Do tell….
