|Stangel and Fenton|
combinations. Fenton Thumbprint Stemware and Stangle Dinnerware, mix up some fabulous Stoneware from Japan and Smoke Goblets from Anchor Hocking. California Pottery and Dinerware from New Jersey. Color values count, not exact shades of this or that. Imagine how much fun it would be to set a table with completely different place settings all in the same color range.
|Harlequin Homer Laughlin|
There is so much style and art on dinnerware, choose a theme like Autumn from these Cup and Saucer sets in Harlequin by Homer Laughlin. Mid Century amber is usually shunned but it mixes so well with earthy neutrals in stoneware. It's easy to collect 3 or 4 of this from the Thrift or yard sale. Add it to 3 or 4 of that from another yard sale keeping the color values in mind. Just be picky about perfect condition and you'll have a table full of fabulous things in no time!
