Dollar Store Polka-Dotted Plates

If you have been following my blog, you probably realize how much I LOVE my dollar store poka-dotted plates.  See the header for my blog?  There is a red one.  I also have pink, black, turqouise and red.  I have large dinner plates and I have loads of smaller salad plates. 

You have seen them for all of my occasions because I love them.  I used them under my son's cupcakes for his birthday party, on my Christmas dinner table, etc.  I am sad.  The strangest phenomenon has been occuring.  They are breaking spontaneously!  I guess that's why they are at the dollar store!  Just the red ones and the turquoise ones have broken so far. 

Check it out!

My little one and I were in the living room and it sounded like something fell onto the floor in the kitchen.  I sent him out to see what fell.  He couldn't find anything.  Later, I went to the kitchen to investigate and this is what I found under that cute little tin on the left.  One piece of it was clear over on the stove top.   What is up with that????  Cheap things!  Oh well, I've been using them for well over a year.  I guess it is time to move on. LOL! 


Next time I will have to go for these!

That is a terrible shame! And a little scary! You just reminded me that I have some blue plats that will match my new cups. Too bad they are packed away in storage!
