Design: Sources of Inspiration

Cracked.  Cracked & stapled is my favorite.

Why do we buy dishes?  By the set.
Fun discovering the cracked dishes at a clients last weekend.  I must look more closely at the pattern, perhaps there is something to copy into the garden.
Ironically, her garden's color trinity is green-brown-white and these dishes are almost the exact faded brown version of her garden.

This dish pattern that we use on a daily basis is called "Merrie England". Gracie and I could spend hours just looking at the gardens therein!


Happy Weekend!

I love that brown and off-white design. So mellow.

Only you would think to look to how an artist interpreted a garden from the past when you're creating a new one. So clever.

I've decided to eliminate comments from my blog. Just my way to frustrate spammers, and there are other social media ways to connect with readers now.

I was reading about Kintsugi, a Japanese tradition of repairing cracks in broken pottery with gold. I'm thinking about ordering a little gold or silver leaf and trying this with an old piece of transferware.
