Aren't these gorgeous??



If you've been following along- your well aware of my Tracy Porter obsession. It's bad. Let's just say that it's a good thing I can't afford to fly to Wisconsin.

Anyhow, these dishes above are her Katsina line and cost $58.00 for a set of four. Now if you'd have asked me 2 years ago if I'd spend $60.00 on 4 plates? I would of said "Sure" without a doubt. Sadly my financial situation isn't what it was and spending that much for 4 plates just isn't going to happen. But I look and I dream and I look some more.

Well imagine my surprise when I stumbled across these babies at Ross!?!





$15.00 for a set of four!?! Ya they aren't Tracy Porter but their close right? I saved so much I went ahead and splurge on a set of bowls too. They were a total of $10.00. I think she'd approve. ;)

Now let's just hope I don't get Cancer from the possibility that lead paint was used during the making of these!

LOL you did good, girl! I love Ross! I just don't like the customers at Ross because they are pushy. They push me. Who would push a short person like me? So rude.

I think T.P. would approve for sure!!!!

You crack me up about the lead!
