Ironstone & Transferware





The day started with a coyote sighting at the airport. Picking up the kiddos in the early morning it crossed our path on Sunport Blvd. and paused in the cactus landscaped median looking over its shoulder at us as we passed. Not a common sight even near the river, let alone near roaring jet engines. It was a thrilling way to begin a day that moved on to a picnic, chasing bunnies and roadrunners, identifying bird calls, and making fairy houses from twigs and stones. Not exactly my ordinary day. But the first real day of spring happens only once a year!

I'm not much of a widlife photographer. And I tend to keep my camera pocketed on safaris anyway. So the afternoon sun casting a soft light on my dining room table will have to do. . . .









































































Are you saving any daylight for yourself this week?
It's not too late. . . .

Oh hi Jacqueline! Beautiful creams, whites, beiges, your display is beautiful. I love it. We have coyotes where we live in California. They often jump our fence and try to catch a loose chicken. I look around for our 'watch'dog...who is often napping! Hahaha...oh well.
Have a beautiful day.
Blessings,
Debbie

That's gorgeous - funny how lighting changes the feeling of a photo.

I sure think your brown transferware is awesome.

I love your collection of ironstone! And coyotes! Wow. We have them in the woods but we rarely see them during the day! I hope the poor guy isn't sick.

XO,

Yes,darling. So in love with ironstone. Don't have any brown transferware and it's hard to find. I think I'll look harder. Love your pieces.

Always enjoy your posts, so graceful and elegant! I just love both transferware and ironstone. Farmers in our area have complained for years of the coyotes. I always find it surprising we even have them here in the great white north, but apparently they are a real nuisance. Diane

Be still my beating heart!! Just beautiful!

Beautiful arrangements with just the right touch of sunlight. The little double handled pot is so sweet (I think I'd keep tea bags inside if it were mine...); and I love the ecru lace, it goes so well with your ironstone; but the covered casserole is my favorite (I have one on the counter and keep my eggs inside!) Enjoy the spring weather and your little visitors!

So serenely beautiful...I recognize the plate in the center!
I remember seeing coyotes some strange places, even in the middle of town, while living in Phoenix!
Have a great weekend, Jacqueline.

Oh my! Your picnic made me so envious!! Sounds delightful! We are simply drowning out here, with ponds and lakes where there should be none and mud, mud everywhere.
Enjoy your company!
