So i had been seeing stories about what china Michelle would contribute to the white house because she is said to have good taste (except acceptance speech dress of course!) ... but then it came out that Laura spent half a million dollars (alway prvivate $$ is used for the plates so not tax money) on a set of china (for the white house collection.) Really i think they are the most awful choice in styles... very old fashioned... etc... so what are thoughts on this??? (please dont tell me i am being petty, i know there are bigger issues in the world but i am in Ohio with 8 inches of snow outside and i am bored and dh is actually watching ds quietly...) endulge my random thought and share...

They are classy and elegant.
They were paid for by a private source.
EVERY first lady has done this and she didn't even spend the most
They were ordered a LONG time ago.
and they were made by AMERICAN china maker LENOX.
p.s. At least they aren't STEALING from the white house like some former administrations!

annom i said they were paid for privately (read much??) lol yes she spent the most... please look that up, the next most expensive was hill and she spend half as much 250,000 ... why are you so defensive... and no one else things GOLD plates are tacky? wow... i just liked the Vera Wang or even Martha Stewart designs i saw that were presented as possible choices for Michelle. i would have liked to see a pertinent designer attached with the plates making them more culturally significant... lenox is for old people...
