My dishes are a hodge-podge collection of whatever has been given to me or left behind. They don’t really match, there’s no real theme, and I kind of like it that way. But sometimes I feel like the adult thing to do would be to have something a little more cohesive. I think I found a good balance.
The new plan is to buy blue and white dishes from everywhere — department stores, boutiques, thrift stores, etc. — and have a matching but mis-matching collection. I used a gift certificate to Z. Gallery to start it off (actually, the one in the middle was a hand-me-down from Barrett* that she can request to have back if she ever wants it):
*More to come on the Lovely Barrett this week — In addition to having great taste in dishes, she is one of the best writers and thinkers and people I know and has begun a blog of her own. This is one you really shouldn’t miss. Because I said so.
