There's a certain "je ne sais quoi" to white serveware. That's French for "kick-ass beauty". Or "something indescribable", I forget which is correct......... Five years of French and I all can recall is how delicious crêpes are.
White serveware in one word: timeless. Classic. Versatile. Utterly captivating in their simplicity. Crap, that's way more than one word. (Looking back, I wish we would have registered for simple white place settings. We're not fine china folks at all!)
I often visit Home Goods during a weekday to avoid crowds and to get first dibs on the new inventory. Armed with my afternoon latte, I wander the aisles and get my white serveware fix. I'm not a gourmet chef/frequent entertainer so I can't justify snagging every piece I lay my eyes on. I just gaze at all of them longingly. It's like Breakfast At Tiffany's except it's Afternoons at Home Goods.
But oh. This one spoke to me in all of its $12.99 glory (The maker is L. Goddinger & Co. Who's that?)
Looking at it now, I can almost hear my BFF-though-he-doesn't-quite-know-it-yet Eddie Ross's approval. Or perhaps imagine my raise-your-own-chickens-so-you-can-have-fresh-eggs-for-your-omelettes-BFF Martha nod and murmur, "It's a good thing." (During her "confinement" I was thisclose to buying a "Free Martha" tee. Yes, they exist.)
Do you think I should keep it empty or fill it with something?
