As much as I welcome the vibrant color Camellias provide, brightening up a dreary winter landscape, when they first bloom, the color is almost toovivid~
I’m celebrating and enjoying their shabby state. . . the bright pink color of the petals softened and going to rust from our recent rainy weather & cold temperatures~
I found some silverplated trays and some stray cream & sugars for a little project I had in mind, looking for pieces with patina, tarnished and oxidized, and that hadn’t seen the Wright’s silver cream in a decade :)
So I’m at the table with faded blooms, tarnished silver, and transferware dishes that lend some cottage charm, and one that matches my Potting Shed mindset.
Enjoying a flower fix provided by my dish garden~ while I wait for spring~ with my Johnson Brothers Staffordshire Bouquet.
The weathered and faded camellias seemed to be a match for the transferware, with its comforting Old World brown and multicolored blooms.
So I’m enjoying camellias, silver, and transferware
in all their faded glory~
