Pot of Cream

It's so easy to become excessive with things you love. If you want one, you want them all. But the eye is charmed by both the single specimen, as in one perfect rose, and by a profusion, as in fields of lavender.

And aren't we suggestible? A color name on a paint chip can send you into a frenzy of cotton. Or a pot of cream. . . .

Is there a color called mottled ironstone?

Would you sprinkle in a few flecks of rust and stir them in?

This little bowl is the newest bloom in my china garden. The mark of her name reads to me like a prize winning rosebud in a David Austin catalog.  

I thought I would introduce her to you alongside the other creamy wares. Pots or pitchers. We make room for them all.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
 Ciao! for now!


And guess what!
 It's time for another White Wednesday
 at Faded Charm!

 Don't miss the party!

This post is so dreamy and seeing all of the lovelies is definitely a "pot of cream." So soft and pretty.

Your style of photography is sooo pleasing to my eye. I always come away so inspired. Now, I want to gather up all my whites and take more photos of them...even tho I've posted them a million times already. Are others like me in that they never tire of ....whites??

What a pretty dish, one of my favorite combinations...creamy white and just a little fagile flower. What is there about white dishes that makes them so appealing...maybe the simplicity. Lovely post.(-:

I so agree once you find something you love you want more...but I have learned while cleaning my studio that one was just enough for me right now.
I had to take back somethings that I really loved but did not need.
It is the hardest thing for a collector to do.
Your collection is just beautiful and the more grungey and piece is the more I love it.

Sherry said...

What a wonderful color on that paint chip. The name says it all. I love all of the names on paint chips, they are fun to look through.

Bead and Needle said...

The china is SO lovely...I love the simplicity - especially LOVE the new piece to your collection - Happy White Wednesday - Tanya

What is it about white that makes it so beautiful? Love your collection. I have been collecting white pitcher, tureens, plates, etc. You are right - one is beautiful AND a lot are beautiful! Linda

Hi Jacqueline, your collection of vintage creamy pitchers are so charming! And I just love the words "pot of cream" too!

Stopping by and saying hello from a fellow White Wednesday participant. Please stop by and join my giveaway when you get a chance.

Beautiful whites and I love the name of the paint....pot of cream.

Enjoy your week.

Jacqueline ~ I've probably told you this before, but I think you and I share a brain! lol! Our eyes and hearts are drawn to the same white goodness whether it's a paint chip or a flower frog or a petite pitcher. Just plain goodness through and through.... :)

Happy WW to you!

Your ironstone collection is just lovely! I am a big fan of pitchers, too. Just love their shape. I've just recently found a few at some of my favorite antique haunts. :) Love your new mottled ironstone bowl. I think those discolorations add such charm.

Hi! Beautiful post which led me to think that Kathleen should name a shade herself and call it White Wednesday!
