Do you ever come across something that you just covet, that seems to sum up your tastes at the moment?
While researching a piece of servingware I saw on our trip to Virginia (still to come), I came across this pretty dinner set at Horchow. It has an old world look to it that I quite admire:
As much as I am trying to de-clutter and spend very little money for a while, this pretty set of goodies caught my eye. They are neither very expensive nor rare, but they are just so unusually "pretty".
I am striving for a clean traditional style in my house, quite "pared down" and not busy. But sometimes my inner romantic comes through. I have a taste for a sort of historical, antique look which is satisfied by things like this!
I have never bought a proper set of dishes and do intend to buy a full set of crisp white dinnerware some day soon. But in the meantime, perhaps I shall have to add these to my un-collected collection of odds and ends...
After all, Christmas is coming...
Items from Horchow, which likely doesn't ship to Canada anyway.
