Happy Friday! It’s time to break out the good stuff again for this week’s #FineChinaFriday!

Like I mentioned last week, I was in Greensboro, NC visiting my mother-in-law. Casually, I said I may go over to Replacements for a tour. I was able to sneak out and drive over. Best. Thing. Ever.

I was the only person on the tour at that particular time. I got a perfectly private tour of this GIANT facility. It was amazing. I was actually rendered speechless.

If you’re not familiar with Replacements, here’s what they say on their website:

Replacements, Ltd. (located in Greensboro, NC) has the world’s largest selection of old & new dinnerware, including china,stonewarecrystalglasswaresilverstainless, and collectibles. Our 500,000-square-foot facilities (the size of 8 football fields!) house an incredible inventory of 13 million pieces in more than 360,000 patterns, some over 100 years old! We add thousands of items to our site each day, so click on the categories above that match your interest, and spend some time with us online!

They offer help with identification of patterns, specials, baby items, and a way you can register your patterns to be notified of inventory changes.

But the very best thing happened. After the tour, the tour guide and I were in the museum area and we had been talking about #FineChinaFriday during the tour. She said, “Hang on, let me go see if our PR Manager is here right now. So for about the next 30 minutes, I met with Lisa Conklin, the PR Manager at Replacements and discussed #FineChinaFriday.

Hopefully I can talk with them some more about ways we could work together to make #FineChinaFriday even more successful!

So with that said, here are a few pictures from last week. I dined on movie popcorn Friday night so I wasn’t able to participate. But tonight, my bourbon will be in a Lincoln teacup, ala Angie at Phickles Pickles!

Happy Friday, y’all!

We’re not around the house to celebrate #FineChinaFriday, BUT I’m in Greensboro, NC, HOME OF REPLACEMENTS! I’m thinking about hitting them up tomorrow for a tour. I’m pretty sure that’s the best way to celebrate the day, right?

I want to share a few pictures from last week… make special note one. Henry was out of town with Jason last weekend and on Monday when I made his dinner he said to me, “Mom, since I missed fine china Friday, can I have my dinner on a fancy plate?”

Uh, how could I say no to THAT?

See? Only what, 4 weeks into it and he’s already trained. He commented mid-chicken-finger that it tasted so much better on the fancy plates! God, I love that kid!

Anyway, enjoy your Friday and your weekend. Make it special!

#FineChinaFriday and Last Week’s Recap

#FineChinaFriday and Last Week’s Recap

 

Last week’s #FineChinaFriday was great fun! We had so many fun participants who showed off how they celebrated with their finest dishes.

If you’re still unaware of what this is, check out the original post about #FineChinaFriday.

I promised a post on how to find pieces of china at great prices for those who don’t have any but want to participate. I’m shooting to have that done tomorrow.

But today I just wanted to share some highlights from last week:

Did you see the picture with a TON of pieces of china being dried?

That’s my friend Karen. She had 16 children (ages 4-10) over for a valentine’s day tea party and was inspired to actually break out her grandmother’s china. AND NOT A PIECE WAS BROKEN!!

She wins the awesome award for the week. Which is really just knowing that she’s awesome because I have nothing to offer!

The celebrity award goes to Kim Kardashian who tweeted about her dinner. Thanks to Heather for pointing out that Kim, in fact, participated in #FineChinaFriday. I choose to think she actually knew about it instead of thinking that she eats like that every day. Whatever!

Join us today.

I want to know about it, though.

#FineChinaFriday: February 17, 2012

#FineChinaFriday: February 17, 2012

After the exciting, first-ever #FineChinaFriday, last week, this week can only get bigger and better! Right?

If you’re just seeing this for the first time, you can see the post about it here and then the Saturday Recap post here.

Caught up now?

This was one of the most exciting parts of it, though:

Noritake caught wind of #FineChinaFriday and shared it on their Facebook wall and Twitter!

Don’t forget. Anything goes. Steak and potato. Take-out Chinese. Domino’s or Digiorno pizza. Cereal or popcorn (looking at you, Dawn).

Now, go forth and be fancy!
