When I first moved out of home - many years ago - I bought myself a plain white dinner set from Target. It's served me well, and minus a few bowls that met an untimely fate on the kitchen floor, is still going strong.
But as much as I love the simplicity of white, I've been increasingly drawn lately to the old fashioned beauty of all things pre-loved and pretty. I've been dreaming of cupcakes in polka dot wrappers served on delicate floral plates. Toast on a bread and butter plate edged in silver.
I've started hunting for old china in op shops and antique stores. I was quite pleased with these lovelies that I picked up on the weekend.
Toast + tea anyone?
