DEEDS and myself.
but I DO LOVE IT DEARLY.
We had such a good time the day I took her to have Pizza and play time at
and we had this photo made of us....
THAT'S why I dearly love this little, silly picture.
It is held on to my fridge with a cute little heart magnet made by
my sweetest friend, LUCY BLOOM
if you've not been over to see her delightful blog,
please take time out and venture over. She has some lovely things!
(and, don't you just adore her name?)
almost every day.
All foods just seem to taste better when they are on a pretty plate.
I am not one to "save" things, either....
I believe in using everything that I love.
I've seen people hold on to a pretty candle, never enjoying the flame from it...
or pretty pillowcases stored and end up yellowed and tattered from lack of use.
Please USE your pretties....that is just what they were made for!!My mom used to tell me that all things pretty were made to enjoy and that
"you needed to USE them so that they would know that you loved them !"
I JUST LOVE THAT and I think of it often.
I am very partial to BLUE AND WHITE TRANSFERWARE
but, lately, I have been dreaming of
RED AND WHITE, too....
the start of a new collection, you ask....
could be.....could be !!
- Transfer printing as a decorative technique was developed in England in the mid-1750s, particularly in the Staffordshire region.
- The transferware process began when a flat copper plate was engraved with a desired pattern in much the same way that plates used to make paper engravings were produced.
- Most transferware patterns sought by collectors today are two-tone in color. Blue and white, red and white and brown and white are the most common colors.
(i saw that statement you made about transferware, NIKKI..and now you know a little more about it. heehee)
brought this cute, little, blue stoneware cup back to me.
Don't you just love it? I sure do......
but I'll tell ya what I REALLY love...
I love that they thought of ME while on a fun trip...
I love that THEY love ME.
I do love this little cup !
My thanks to sweet SMILING SALLY
for hosting this fun,
please sneak over and take a look at all the other pretty BLUES !
and please don't forget to count your blessings!
continue to pray for our sisters and brothers on the Gulf Coast...they are having such a terrible time right now.
no electricity, no water, no ice...little food
GOD BLESS THEM ALL
