In the last couple of days, I 'unearthed' this ceramic piece in the garage. As I tend to fill every kind of container you can think of with buttons and such...this time, I thought of a little collection I have of tiny balls of perle cotton, crochet thread, etc. The colors were just so perfect. I love this little
'flower' dish with the perfect pink bird hovering over it....and so, with a bit more color - a quilt, this blog post came about.
I love how the top of the "flower" is yellow and as you look down, it turns into this pretty pink color...just like the bird.
A bit closer....
And, upside down. Where it's really pink! There you see the maker...Royal Copley.
Thought I should give you a better idea of it's size...even the thread size can be noted. I don't think I can ever use this thread...as I rarely find these little balls of thread in my flea market trips...and this thread is, to me, very special.
And, what about the quilt? It's special too. Actually, most of the quilt is in need of lots of repair, so it may not happen. However, I will do something with it...meantime, it's great for a backdrop. With PINK!
And, more color!
As you know, shopping at the flea market is one of my favorite things and I've been doing it for years. So, therefore, my house is full of "stuff.' My doctor recently told me to keep it up as it "keeps me going." Oh, yea, Permission! How cool is that? People tell me that my house 'looks just like me." And, you know I have always said there is a story for every item. With that in mind, I found this quote today:
"Collect things that you love, that are authentic to you, and your house becomes your story."
