Look at this! It's a little bit more subdued but very nice!

Good description.

Very nice Cat. They would be accepted on my boat for sure. I hope Mrs D doesn't see this thread She would buy them at the drop of a hat.

Oh good! I thought these may be better. Thank you all!

Don't show this to her, Rocket. It could become expensive!

I will be calling the Gizzi tomorrow. I bet he will like these!

Thank you all so very much for helping me with these things! I appreciate you, and I'll let you know what the Gizzi decides.

With love,
~Cat

I love that Corelle pattern Cat! I've been trying to break my plain white Corelle dinner ware for more than 30 years now, with no luck at all. Talk about durable~~

I think I deserve some new dishes, so I'm going to order these! Thanks for finding them!!

I love the pattern. But the mug seems a bit too small for a man's hand. One gulp and the cup is empty.

One of the advantages of Corelle is that it is very thin and thus takes up less room. Easier to store.

I will be right over with my hammer. Donate your white ones to the Salvation Army thrift store.

You're right Addie, Corelle cups are 8 oz or less no matter what the pattern.

Cat, you might also want to think about getting enough big, sturdy mugs for the crew to use. If you want to get really fancy, maybe some diner mugs that you could personalize with each member's name. They make markers that work on porcelain and china that you can heat-set so the name stays on.

The description states the mugs hold 11 ounces.

Oh I'm so happy! The Gizzi loves this set of dishes! He said to me, "Very good, Little Captain. I want those." I'll go look for great big mugs in something unbreakable to add to the set.

But the guys always have these huge thermal mugs with tops they bring from home. They put their coffee and tea in these and stash them close to the deck.

The Gizzi says these are a go!

She made another 9 miles today. There was a winter squall which set them back, but the weather is clearing so they may make better headway tomorrow.

I have some savings. I'm buying these for fifty people instead of forty, for the new Catina is much bigger. It's my gift to the Gizzi, who never threw me out of his galley, and who was harsh to me so I would learn. He'll still be very harsh with me in the 2015 season, because he cares and wants me to learn.

When I was much smaller he'd let me sit in his lap and he would tell me of sea tales. I loved that!

I thank you all! We have the dishes now!

Kayelle, I'm so happy I stumbled upon something you like! Tell me how you like them, please?

I have the greatest support group in all the world on this endeavor from all of you. It's all for Papa and the crew and the Gizzi, and I must not go wrong on anything.

With love,
~Cat
