Possibly Cute Christmas China

For the most part, I have pretty decent taste. My taste in clothes, shoes, and home furnishings usually lean toward simple and classic. However, deep within me lives a tacky streak. The worst part about this tacky streak is that I can't tell when it crops up. I have the inability to tell when I am being tacky. When in doubt, I always ask my husband or my friends, and they are always quick to tell me if I am indeed being tacky.

On a recent trip to Target, I discovered some Christmas china that is really pretty. Of course, it could be horribly tacky, and I just don't realize it. Anyway, I wanted to share it with you. It is different than normal Christmas china, but there is just something about it that I love. I think a set of dessert plates in this pattern would be so cute for the holidays. I don't think I would want the full set. However, I will not be purchasing the china because it is a want and not a need. My Christmas budget only allows for needs. Stupid budget!! However, if you like this Christmas china (and your Christmas budget is kinder than mine), you can find at Target (in store and on-line). For the record, it does look prettier in person and in the Target weekly ad than it does in this picture. I guess it isn't very photogenic. :)

You are too funny! I love it. You are definitely not tacky! Can't go wrong with black and white.

I love it Jen. It is cute and I wished that I could purchase it. My budget is not allowing me to get much eaither.

Ah, so I was in Tarjay today and totally thought of you! I saw the china in person and it is WAY cute. But, I have to admit with my love for all things gold, I totally fell in love with the gold and ivory "winter leaves" pattern. Oh I totally wish I could afford holiday china :) Gotta pay for the practical stuff first, though, right?
