Fancy Schmancy China


I've had an excellent week of thrift store scores & I'm so excited because I came across some beautiful plates that pair PERFECTLY with my current china.
I just have to show it off...Isn't that a pretty setting?
The patterned piece is from my original China collection. 
It's by Gorham and is called Lorenzo Di'Medici.
I guess I should explain that "I LOVE MY CHINA".
Ok I know that sounds crazy & I never thought I'd even own a set of china, but I lusted over this 8 piece place setting at a thrift shop for about 6 months before finally biting the bullet and bringing it home.
The store wanted an outrageous amount for it, so it sat in a case forever.  I stopped in one day when they were having a huge sale & BAM, it was mine!!!  We actually use China more than I thought we would, and I'm happy to add a few contrasting pieces in the mix.  These are the new additions.
When I spotted these beautiful teal plates this week I knew they would match perfectly!  The China is by Flintridge of California and I believe the pattern is called Platinum Teal.  There was a set of 6 dinner plates and 4 side plates, but unfortunately 1 of the side plates was broken. I purchased all 10 pieces for under $5!  SCORE!
So, now I have this!  
I love it and will keep my eyes peeled for additional pieces of either of the sets...and I hope you will too!

  1. Beautifully paired! I have my eye on a set of china also, I actually bought a few pieces earlier this month for my Etsy shop & the more I look at them the more I want to go back & snatch up the entire set to keep for my very own!
