I would like to apologize for the length of time between posts, we've been having some technical issues and just couldn't post anything for a few days. Continuing along in my little series on the ingredients for a lovely table setting, I would like to share a few pictures of china and some of the different sorts of vintage patterns and pieces that are available for your table. As there are so many to choose from I will try to share some other patterns in the future. One of the joys of using vintage pieces is that you have such a wide variety of themes to choose from. You can use a whole set of matching dishes if you would like or you can mix and match favorite pieces that share a theme of some sort like color, flower, transferware etc. And as you know, think outside the box. One of the items below is actually a jardinere but could be lovely for holding a salad, fruit or even a pudding on your table.
