I know. It's a shock.
I have had complete sets of dinnerware before, but as they break (almost always the dinner plates) I replace them with garage sale finds. Needless to say, it doesn't take long before everything is mismatched again.
This time, I bought two sets and I'm on the hunt for the third matching set, so if another plate breaks, I'll have extras.
Perhaps now my mother won't feel so sorry for me.
Look, Ma. I match!
I decided to go for a white dish with an embossed garden motif. White is easy to pair up with my plain white serving pieces. For formal occasions I still have my black on black china. Amazingly, it has survived nearly 30 years! But I can't seem to keep my everyday dishes for more than a year or two.
Am I the only one with mismatched stock? Do your dishes match?
