Wish List Wednesdays: Pier 1 Sandpiper Dinnerware
I am not really very fond of the coast. I don't care for heat, sand, saltwater, or unrelenting sunshine, and so often beaches are terribly overcrowded. I do, however, think that at certain times the coast can be quite lovely, especially on an overcast day when the weather is cool and there are fewer people around. Long ago I was involved in a research project on the Maryland coast in the spring, and I loved walking along the beach early in the morning to get to my research site. I remember seeing the cutest little sandpipers, and the Sandpiper Dinnerware ($7.95-$8.95 per piece) from Pier 1 reminds me so much of those little birds. There is even a Sandpiper Painted Wine Glass ($9.95 each) available. Wouldn't these dishes be perfect for a beach home? The pieces are sold individually rather than as a set, so the cost can add up, but you could just buy dinner or salad plates as an accent with plainer dinnerware and still bring a touch of the sea to your table no matter where you live!
