So it really is true! Good things do come in small packages. In the middle of showing homes to clients, running home to eat chicken soup because I still feel like poo-poo, taking some Sudafed Cold (non drowsy my patootie!)...a small package arrived. I knew what it was instantly. I was sooooo excited. AND....I had the perfect spot for it.
I have this minuscule plate stand. There it sat....all alone...with nothing to display of its own. I mean - what does one put on such a small plate stand?
THIS!!!! I found this lovely pink and white Staffordshire piece on eBay for $9. I can fit this into my palm. I have never seen something so petite and beautiful.
Here's a close-up. Isn't it a beauty?
Also, remember my on-going kitchen project? I finally got the hutch painted black to match my breakfast table and chairs. I love it! If I feel like it tomorrow (meaning if the "non-drowsy" Sudafed doesn't knock me out cold) - I plan on heading to JoAnn's to take advantage of their 50% off fabric sale. I am going to upholster the back of the hutch. I can't seem to find any wallpaper I like. So, here's the before - displayed with my pink and white and ironstone collection...
And here's the after .... before the fabric upholstery. Amazing difference huh? I love how the little white porcelain knobs just pop now. I am thinking of having a piece of soapstone or white marble cut to fit for the bottom's top. I think that would be the defining touch!
I see the end to this 6 month long kitchen project. I will post pics of my completed soffit area with majolica plates. It turned out even better than expected and has an unexpected finish.
Happy "Warm" Thoughts....Barb
