Ooooh! That Twist dinnerware pattern is so swimmy and wavy, I love it! Thanks for sharing this Jen…it reminds me that I haven’t received my West Elm catalog recently, so I need to check on that. Happy Almost Summer! :)

I bought the white tray they show the plates sitting on! I’m having too much fun switching out scrapbook paper to line the bottom of it!

The grey is so cute but I don’t have anywhere to store any more dishes!
