My mother loved dishes and so do I. I have lots of dishes, some inherited and some bought, but I often want to acquire more dishes.
I try to limit myself by allowing form to follow function. Recently I saw some mugs for our new coffee bar that appear to be designed just for us.
First, the function. I like glasses and mugs that are wider on the bottom than on the top so they don’t topple easily.
I also like cups and glasses that aren’t too big. For me it’s not the quantity of food but the quality that counts. I’m not a fan of “all you can eat” (or drink) menus.
Starbucks, or really I should say one local Starbucks store, has a new mug that exactly matches our new kitchen. (I visited 5 other stores and the online store and could not find another mug like this.)
They’re creamy white on the top like our polar white top cabinets and two shades of taupe on the bottom like our graphite bottom cabinets and royal grey honed limestone backsplash.
I had to purchase all they had which was only 4 mugs. I would ultimately like 8 of them. I’ll keep my eyes open.
Are you ever tempted by the “perfect thing”?
