O.k. If you asked me 5 years ago what dish pattern I was into, it wouldn’t be Villeroy and Boch’s “Audun Ferme”. Really, the idea of a vintage photograph with a lady feeding a cow on a salad plate would have made me laugh! So, I guess my taste has changed and I now gravitate towards more traditional decor inspired by my house and surroundings? Or maybe I’ve always liked a traditional style, but never felt confident enough to express it? I believe if our taste remained the same throughout life, how boring would it be?
Last Christmas, my mother gave me my Grandmother’s silver and said to me, “Your Grandmother did not have many luxurious things in life, with the exception of this silverware which she treasured with pride”. Again, not my taste 5 years ago, but knowing how much my Grandmother loved it, a new admiration came to light. So, yes! I am excited about my new collection. Truth be told, I still laugh when I look at these plates as they reflect my appreciation for whimsy and tradition.😉
