I used to be very meticulous about having all matching dishes.
But over the years I realized that I love the mix and match look of vintage, and some new dishes.
It feels informal, which is us, we are not formal people at all!
I feel like there is a simplicity to it and I actually like the way the different dishes look all stacked in our glass front cabinets.
I always look for white ironstone when I am out thrifting, because you just can't have enough in my opinion.
Plates, platters, trays, and pitchers are some pieces that I find almost every time I am out shopping.
I even like the look of different mugs.
The one thing to keep in mind if you go this route, is to stick with one color.
Don't be afraid to mix in a little whimsy!
If you see something in your color, and you love it, go for it.
I love this little dog pitcher, it's so cute and I think it was 99 cents.
I also think the mixed dishes look looks great on a table setting like this.
I've been known to host Thanksgiving dinner with these dishes and it looks great no matter what time of year!
Some of my plates are simple ones from the Dollar Tree too, it doesn't need to be fancy.
Hope you are all having a great day!
