When I last visited my parents I was fortunate to be given some of my Mom’s china. I think she figured now that I have a kid and I’m married; I’m responsible 😉 . Thanks Mom! What I’ve been specifically passed down are her chinoiserie plates, bowls, and vases. I am in blue and white heaven 🙂 . Fortunately, these pieces work perfectly with my current kitchen accessories of solid navy plates and the killer cookware set my husband bought me. Gotta love a good mixture of traditional and modern kitchen accessories 🙂 .
