Out with the old, in with the new

Yesterday, we had to say goodbye to our dinnerware we loved so dearly. We had registered for the Kita dinnerware setting from Crate & Barrel, and after about a month of use, we found that the crackled glaze we loved so much was starting to stain. We tried everything to get it out (and this is not only from coffee and tea stains, but things as basic as tomato sauce & sriracha.) But no dice. We tried living with it. And continued to get upset every time one of the pieces would stain.

So yesterday, we finally bit the bullet and took them back. (Thank you Crate & Barrel returns department.)
RIP Kita dishes. We loved you.

Fortunately, there is a happy ending here. We were able to find another place setting we liked ALMOST as much.

Introducing, Staccato. Welcome to our humble abode.

This happened to us, too! We had to take our Kita back and we were sad!
