The only really nice thing I have is the crystal glasses from my grandmother. I only use them on special occasions because they're so fragile... And then the usual white Ikea china and Ikea drinks glasses (these are specially for alcohol - it doesn't matter if they break). I hardly ever set the table, I just grab a plate and eat

I have a billion crystal wine glasses stored away, I just don't have the room for them

I just saw a magazine article that had pictures of White Full Lace, and I remembered your pattern ... no wonder I think I like the Half better--I imagine you do too

I've been thinking about getting some creamware to go with fancy antique damask napkins ... I have some Wedgwood Strawberry and Vine (now discontinued) ... thinking about getting some plates in Nantucket.

Recent purchases ... patterns are Haviland Ranson and Homer Laughlin English Garden. The monogram on the napkins is George II of Sachsen-Meiningen. The Haviland is meant to go with the napkins ... it was produced from 1893-1931, so it was in production in 1907 when the napkins were made

I usually just have my table cloth on it, 3 candles on a place, salt & pepper shakers and the butter dish.

I only get the plates out for when it is time to eat.

For daily use, I have 4 simple white places and 4 white bowls.

Simple silverware set.

There's only two people usually, so we don't really need much.

For parties or get togethers, I bring this pretty turquoise blue ceramic plate set and some fancier silverware.

This is the very first thing I ever bought for myself Still have some pieces of it. The glazing is terrible even though it wasn't cheap ... the dessert plates are heart shaped It's kind of a tea set or something , no bowls or platters, so I bought the Strawberry and Vine I have to mix with it.

Haldon Group Blue Stripe

My mom is obsessed with portmeirion. She got her first portmeirion when my parents were married, which was when it could only be found in England now it's available in the states, but slowly she's built up quite the collection. Pretty much all of our dishes, mugs, bowls, just everything is from the portmeirion botanic garden collection. And I think it would be impossible to get her to change table settings. We use these all the time because my mom's theory is "why let the pretty china sit in a cabinet? It deserves to see the light of day and get some use out of it." And I totally agree with her philosophy and I have a feeling that someday when I have my own house it'll be a portmeirion home as well.
