You and only you, dearest, can combine other colors with your signature blue and still make the blue the most prominent and effective color...I wouldn't know how to incorporate red into my décor, but YOU KNOW HOW! UN COUP DE GÉNIE!!!!!

Have a lovely, lovely Friday! The countdown is on, isn't it....we are going to relish every second of summer, aren't we? :) Anita

Sue Jack said...

Your dishes are lovely! I collected many like that once, but then.....and don't hate me here, :)....I broke them all to use as mosaic tiles! We used only the flat, center designs, but my mother and I decorated the top of an old round table with them for her gazebo. We put each of the designs back together like a puzzle and placed them in groups on the table top. It turned out fabulously! And how much fun it was spending that time with my best friend!

myletterstoemily said...

it would be such fun to visit her shoppe!

your china on top are delectable, too.

now i'm going to steal your peach pie recipe!

so hot. we actually have been promised
some lower temps. on sunday.

Those are pretty plates :)
Your comments are always so encouraging, thank you! I have a job interview on Monday!
I'm so jealous that your daughter is studying in the UK. Are you going to go visit? Last year I studied in Spain, and it was one of the best experiences of my life.

Shell said...

Happy Friday. I adore roses too. Rose love!!! I finished today making myself rose bath powder. In the process of making rose oil to use as well.

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Those dishes are so very pretty... A few months ago, I purchased a vintage tablecloth with deep red blooming roses all around... the leaves are a light green...
I keep using it in different rooms. Can't get enough of it!

roses are such an 'eternal' flower... so beloved.

Koralee!
While out today getting home safety things for Dad, I stopped in Barnes and Noble for a few minutes of Maria-time...
...the aroma of coffee lead me right to the magazine section...
Of course, I reached for "Artful Blogging" to read all about our little Bluebird!
What a wonderfully written article and such lovely photos... it was exciting to see one of our dearest blog friends recognized for her talent and caring thoughts.
What an honor and what a keepsake for your family {and friends}.
I am sure your grandmother is smiling ♥
*happy weekend to you*
love,
Maria
