For years, I've been collecting French Ivory-handled flatware, but just knives and forks. Why not spoons, you might ask? They didn't make spoons. So, while I have loads of knives and forks, I am lacking spoons, which makes it difficult to eat ice cream and soup, or to stir coffee.
I was in Target the other day and saw that they had some pearl-handled spoons, which I thought would be a good option to use with the flatware. I picked up six, and when I got to the register, I found out that they were 99¢ each! I will be going back to get some more, you can be sure.When I was checking the Target website to get a picture of the spoons, I saw something that struck fear into my heart: Target is selling "monogrammed" flatware, china and barware. Personally, I think monogrammed china looks like you lifted it from a hotel. I also think that monogrammed flatware shouldn't come from Target and it should have more than one initial. The monogram font they're using is Monotype Corsiva, which is a Microsoft default font. Ew. What do you think?
