It's time for a new set of every day dishes. My "good" set I received for my wedding from 1997 are Mikasa Italian Countryside and I use them probably 6 times a year. I enjoy them. However, I want to invest in an every day set. We currently have Ikea and the sounds from the forks are driving me nuts! I want something white, not too funky - classy and simple. And NO fork scratching. Need a set of 12 and I am not looking for cheap. Finding a great deal is another story so prepared to go to outlets, etc. I want a set to last a lifetime. Any ideas?
