you know melamine? the kind of hard resin plates that are a much better option for those of us that find "unbreakable" corelle plates aren't as unbreakable as they claim? well, they're usually available only in solid colors or kiddie patterns. but i came across these and they're so pretty! and so grown up. i think i might pick up a set. designed by, available in the bay area at nest and a bunch of other places.
