Hi Everyone,
Who will be the first to buy something?
I did event design for a party at the Hamptons home of Miss B., and she gave me these two plates in appreciation. No huge story.
We were just two gals who liked Majolica.
She decorated her house herself, and it was very country and charming, vintage quilts as tablecloths, Majolica sprinkled around, wing chairs and cozy...
I designed the tables around her look, using a variety of quilts as table cloths, with mix and match china, wild flowers in jugs...It was an outdoor party in her garden and it was lovely.

This is an amazing sale and what a fab idea for a blog sale such as this!

I think collections are indicative of people's hearts/minds/souls....and yours are abundant with life, vivid color, enchanting textures, a keen eye for quality and perhaps most importantly, a DIVINE SENSE OF HUMOR!!!

You always astound me.
