Remember when I said that I wasn't going to start collecting MCM dinnerware for fear of ending up with like 100 different incomplete sets?
I'm now the owner of a full set for 8 of Jamaica Bay by Taylor, Smith & Taylor, which includes dinner plates, salad plates, small bowls, saucers, and coffee cups (but no regular-sized bowls!).
Yes, I admit it. I'm a Mid-Century Modern junkie.
In my defense, I was extraordinarily tired and in the midst of an estate sale frenzy. I saw that cool atomic pattern alongside the $12.00 price tag and BAM! In a moment of weakness, I brought home the whole set. I just couldn't help myself.
And you already know that I'm now going to be combing through the dinnerware section of every St. Louis thrift store trying to piece together a collection of matching bowls and serving utensils like some sort of fiend. That's the way the sick mind of a Mid-Century Modern addict works.
In a few months time, you'll likely see me on the side of the road selling my body for a butter dish and soup spoons.
