You may have noticed I have *slight* dish addiction. . .
I don’t discriminate. . .
I love both new and old dishes alike.
And I can’t help picking up a lonely transferware piece to give it a new home.
Pieces with crazing, worn and stained. . .
Gravy boats that are chipped. . .
Tureens and sugar bowls with missing lids.
Perfectly imperfect to serve up some flowers!
I picked up some blooms for free that were headed to the discard pile, leftover after the Valentine’s Day.
Blooms just a little past their peak. . .
But pretty in a shabby, time-worn way like the transferware.
And I recently found an oval platter at a local antique mall, marked Dianthus Colonial Pottery Stoke England, with a few chips on the edge.
Perfectly imperfect for the $7 price tag and serving alongside flowers in my Potting Shed!
