I am a total sucker for pink and roses and vintage porcelain. Put the 2 together and LOOK OUT! Pretty vintage mustache cup and saucer, paired with a trio of large blooming roses on this cabinet plate equals pure bliss!

I love my vintage glass vase filled with a combination of dried herbs and a dried peonies flower…wishing for new life in spring!

You can smile now!

 

Mix & Match French Limoges ….Timeless!

 

IMG_5633 (850x567)

I decided to take some photos of my French Limoges table setting before I replaced it with a spring setting! I had mixed some Old Paris unmarked French soup bowls with a burgundy wine colored rim decorated with gold scroll work with a simple pink floral pattern with splashes of green. Since I had so much color with the place settings I used clear glass short beverages, great for wine!

IMG_5634 (850x567)

Don’t be afraid to try something difference…the gold in both pieces of china, work very well together and really the pink and dark wine color

work well together too!

Also, I added a clear candelabra in the center to add height and some short burgundy colored votive candles! When you have a few basics, you can create varying settings with just simple changes!

Here are some pressed glass dessert bowls too with a splash of shabby chic Nippon pink floral salt and pepper shakers!
