White Wednesday: Mismatched Plates

Over the years I've seen so many beautiful dishes that strike my fancy, it was inevitable I'd become a dedicated mix and matcher. These two are part of a small luncheon set I couldn't resist, made in Limoges, France by Haviland.


They fit in well with my other dishes' mostly blue and white coloring and make appearances throughout the year.

This turkey always makes his way into the rotation come fall.

And this cow! He's one of my very favorites -- I love the way he's curled his hoof under.

Be sure to visit Faded Charm for more pretties in white!

  6. I ADORE that cow as well! It's his little curled hoof that made me fall in love too! One of our boxers is colored like a calf (well at least he reminds us of one!) and he lays like that often or with both curled under, then he looks like a sheep! LOL So glad I saw this on White Wednesday...such a great link party! New follower!

  11. I think these are two of the prettiest plates I've ever seen! And I love to mix and match too, because you can get alot more plates that way. It's cheaper than buying a whole set!
    Happy White Wednesday!

  16. The turkey strutting is the best one for me. The painting is so delicate and yet the colors so vibrant. I have never seen these Limoges plates before.

  18. Those are wonderful! I'm the same way with dishes, I shouldn't be because I don't have the storage for them but sometimes I just can't resist a pretty plate or 2! Theresa

  20. We I was a kid our everyday dishes were a stack of mismatched whatever, oh, how I hated it then. But now I'm thinking how charming, good thing I grew up.
