Playing around with some of my favourite blue and white pieces of china. I have two of each of these little dishes and yes, sadly I’m one of those people that is ‘precious’ about certain things and they aren’t used in the normal course of dining – they are purely ornamental and for me to play with :-)
When I was little, growing up in the English countryside, instead of playing with china, I used to play shop with flowers. Did anyone else do this? My friends and I would have an assortment of flowers to sell: daisies, buttercups, speedwell, mini roses, sometimes lilac and swap them with one another or pay for them with sycamore leaves – so sweet, ah those were the days!
I miss our garden at home it’s so beautiful, very green (due to all the rain) and full of life. I will show you some pictures sometime.
Wishing you a lovely day.
