Hello Everyone – I hope you have had a splendid week. Over at my end, I am up to my eyeballs in deadlines! I was going to do a post on more fall tableware, but I just ran out of time. Instead, I am going to show you just what a sucker I am for Blue Transferware — especially those made by Spode.
This is my “festive” transferware platter – the pattern is officially called “Festival”. I used to only put it out for the holidays, but I like it so much that I have leave it out all year round. I just love that majestic look of that turkey, don’t you? :)
This is a Seder or Passover platter that bears the background pattern of antique Jewish filigree. I am not Jewish, but I have always loved the story of deliverance in the book of Exodus – the things foreshadowed in the event are simply amazing!
This is a smaller platter that shows the “Girl At Well” pattern. I have always loved this pattern even though this is the only piece I have. The wholesome beauty of the girl drawing water from the well reminds me of the beauty of serving others:
Soon, it will be the season for this:
Meanwhile, these came in the mail today – my blue ribbon from the Grouseland Old Tippecanoe Block Challenge, a certificate, and a hand-written note from the organizers. While designing the quilt block, I learned that there are more quilts named after President William Harrison than any other Presidents even though he was only in office for 32 days:
Thank you for coming to my show-and-tell. I wish you an enjoyable weekend!
