I’m posting on the Blue Monday party, as I was looking at my most wondrous Christmas gifts. This certainly seemed to be the time. I’m also joining in Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home.
The beautiful tray was a Christmas gift from Mr. Scaper (with lots of help). It is by Tracy Porter. She has a wonderful web site and beautiful dishes!
This year for Christmas, the beautiful lidded bowl was from my wonderful sister in law Anne and my dear brother (don’t know how much he really had to do with it, anyway…)
Don’t you love how this shot picks up the crimson of my sofa and pale blue walls which perfectly match the Tracy Porter tray! (That Mr. Scaper is some shopper. LOL)
Wedgewood is celebrating their 250th anniversary and knowing what a dish-a-holic I am, dear sister in law Anne thought I should have this for my collection. To learn more about Wedgewood’s celebration of it’s 250th anniversary, click here.
These pieces are examples of jasperware. Jasperware has a body which is either white or colored, that is known for its matte finish. It was first developed by Josiah Wedgwood and its best known form is the popular blue-and-white ware, but it comes in many other colors.
The above mosaic of my Wedgewood blue jasperware collection is my contribution to Mosaic Monday at the Little Red Cottage.
