a shining partnership

i was very happy to see that crate and barrel has partnered with nambe on a line of aluminum alloy serving pieces. it's a smart move for them, because pieces like this have become a bridal registry staple and previously, you'd have to be registered at bloomingdales or another department store to partake. i also like that it's not a "value" line, where the pieces are cheaper, but that it is instead in the same price range, and the designs they carry are exclusive to crate and barrel.

a much larger nambe selection still exists at other places, particularly bloomies, but i really like the collection of pieces crate and barrel has, particularly the salt and pepper shakers, and have a feeling they'll add more pieces if people get on board.

i think these are nice pieces for gift-giving and beautiful additions to a holiday or special occasion warbrobe of pieces.

Love these- I got some alloy serving dishes for wedding presents and use them contantly- off to look at the salt and pepper shakers for my dining room table.

p.s. Your pics of fall harvest veggies make me want to go home and make a squash soup and apple pie!
