Finally, Friday

There is a small collection I have of pottery with floral decal decoration. They remind me of my grandmother and the cottage they had on the Credit River. Days long gone. This one has been bleached by the sun as the same decal inside the bowl has deep oranges and prussian blues.

 This one is on a little creamer I keep near the kitchen sink. It reminds me of warm summer evenings. It is all that's left of a set my mom had.

 And this last one is a reproduction pitcher I bought a number of years ago. I love the little dots and the cascading blossoms. One day I will replicate it myself into a screen.

Have a lovely 
almost spring 


  1. funny there is this old floral english ironstone pattern that always reminds me of our cottage in quebec where we spent our childhood summers.
    I hope to find some thrift store pieces to start my own little collection to use for summer meals on the porch.

  2. That is lovely china that you have. I like to collect china that we used to use when I was growing up.
    Working Saturday but it should be sunny so that will be nice. Have a good weekend.
