Birthday Splurges

I had no clue what I wanted last week for my birthday.  No clue at all.  The day came and went, a few more days went by until finally I decided I simply wanted a few new things for the kitchen.  The place where I spend the most time each day.  The place where hospitality begins and ends.  The poor space has needed a few new accessories to give it some renewed pride.

No, I don’t mean a kitchen remodel or something.  We live in a rental apartment so any room remodeling will have to wait until we own a place some day…I just mean a few basic items we have been lacking.  A water pitcher (we have seriously used flower vases as pitchers before out of desperation;), clear glass dessert plates and dishware that is not cracked in many places.

Armed with some splurging money, I went to Target the other day and found what I was looking for.   Thanks to my parents and their love for mediterranean-designed dishes, my eyes immediately fell upon a  fun, print dishware set.  I was going to look for a plain set but that just is not me…I have to eat off something with character!  Each set only comes with four of each item listed so I’ll have to keep half of our older dishes until I can buy another set of the new and have eight of each item.  But it’s a start!

I also  found the clear dessert plates, the pitcher and even some whimsical oven mits with a bird print.  My dream item for the future is a Kitchen Aid Ultra Power stand mixer.  A bit out of our price range right now but something to save for in the future.   Isn’t it always fun to have a dream item?:)
