This post in a way is similar to my post of a few days ago on table settings. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE pretty china. I especially love mix matched pretty china. I set my table with different patterns of china when I have company coming. It makes my table all the more interesting to look at. I get most of my pretty china from auctions, thrift stores. Some of them I get from Marshalls, Home Goods and TJ Maxx. If I find only 2 or 3 plates left of a pattern I will buy it. Having entire sets of china is not important to me at all.
I love vintage patterns to most.

Most of these photos I got from Pinterest, so I have no idea where most originated from. If you see a photo that belongs to you just let me know and I will be happy to give you credit for it or remove it if you prefer. I am very easy to work with. Thank you
