The Kitchn posted a guide to picking out new dishes. This may seems like the most trivial of pursuits, but I adore dishes, and have far, far, far too many. I agree with most everything they recommend, but I stand by my fine china. It’s too fun to break it out, especially when no one expects it.

There are some bloggers whose lives don’t intersect with mine in many ways, but whose posts just make me happy. This is one of those posts.

(And for even more Paris inspiration, you do read Paris in Four Months, right?)
