Can we dish?

Plate Love

I've got plates on my mind this week, because I was taking photos of the newest item in our shop. I'm tempted to keep them.

Ironstone sandwich plates with the most wonderful depiction of workers haying a field. I just love 'em.

How about this one......isn't this pattern great?

I've featured some of potter Ericka O'Rourke's handi-work before. It's all earthy and lovely.

MarciG's flower bowls are awesome too. This white poppy bowl is almost too pretty to use for dipping sauce.

Wow. Talk about color. Just reading the description on this piece and the process used to produce this plate, makes me want it.

  It's one glorious plate.
So is the day. I'm heading out to the pool shortly to enjoy the beautiful sunshine.

Before I go.............

Sunset Meadows

Forgot to post these yesterday. Thursday's sunset. I took the first two. G-man took the rest.

Now I've got Elton John rolling around my head................

Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

Have a great Saturday in your little corner of the world. I plan on doing the same.
