she entitled it Feeling Very Delftish!
She reminded me of my small collection of Harumi Ota hand painted porcelain pieces.
I use them for serving up salads and vegetables and when they are not full of food they are in plain sight for my amusement and admiration.
I love blue and white china and porcelain.
The makers of fine porcelain have used this colour combination for hundreds of years.
This is the newest piece which I purchased with money that Mother gave me for Christmas.
I am a firm believer that when one is given money for a gift that it should be spent on something
that one desires rather than something one needs.
Imagine if you will these bowls filled
with oranges, lemons or limes...
These tomatoes looks so plump and juicy
I love how they look redder by comparison to the cobalt blues and snowy whites.
Turned upside down
the base is commodious
I could stand a large bees wax candle on top and use it in a centre piece!
Think of the honey scent as it slowly burns and illuminates the area.
This older image is one of Pepper as a kitten.
It's cold and icy here
the heated floors in the basement are turning out to be my favourite place to walk barefoot!
It would not surprise me if the cats take to napping on them.
I hope that your week is filled with colour and good times.
