Yes, I know this is rich coming from the queen of transferware, but I'm really feeling the need to be plain lately.
Don't you love this little Wedgwood basketweave plate? It was a thrift store find. I think that lack of color or pattern really allows the shape to stand out.
Here are my kitchen cabinets, displaying some creamware and one of my favorite tole trays. Actually, I'm thinking that a beautiful cream platter would look better there. Now I know what to look for in my next shopping expedition. :)
I also collect a lot of milk glass. I love how the lack of color allows the shapes to be the star.
I have great plans to strip the wallpaper in the kitchen (as well as the bedroom) and paint, maybe a shade or two darker than the cabinets. I'd love to have a collection of creamware to display here, or maybe my milk glass.
I guess I'm craving a little respite from color and pattern. A little simplicity. That's a good thing, right?
And, just for the record, that doesn't mean that I'm looking to get rid of all my other dishes. Just in case you were wondering.
