Happy Birthday to me!

No, it's not my birthday yet ,it's on dec 21st and I'll be the big 3-0 oh my gosh did I just tell everyone how old I am going to be!!!! :), but I did get this for my birthday early!

It's Rachel Ashwell's Simply Shabby chic dish set from Target and right now it's on sale! That's why I got it early becasue it sells for 70.00 but right now you can get it for 50 bucks so don't walk to target, RUN!!

They are so pppreeetttyy!!! It's a 16 piece set with plates ,mugs and deep bowls that I love with a scalloped like edge on the bowls and plates too.
The food just looks so much prettier on these, it really does.Pretty like these sweet roses . A new goodwill opened up near my house so I have been there quite a bit as well as trying to finish up the christmas shopping and decorating. We are going to take the kids to see santa on the 19th, hopefully I can get some cute lil pictures of all my little tarlings!
Photobucket I do like to pick out my gifts because I like things that are functional like the dish set, I had been using all my vintage dishes till now, but I thought if I ever wanted to use my dishwasher now I can with these dishes as I don't think you can put old dishes through the wash ,nor would I want to take that chance.Anyways ,I can't believe it is almost christmas already!!!Where does the time go??
