Simplicity

Over the weekend I found a couple of wonderful "whites",
 and wanted to share them,
 along with some other info.
Nothing earth shattering...
just something that I've needed to do for awhile,
but was chicken.


And that would be to stop relying on the automatic setting of my camera.


I'm still learning,
but at least I put my big toe in the water
of the proverbial pond of better picture taking.


Of all places, I chose a spot where the light isn't very good,
but I just wanted a "simple setting" for sharing my new white finds.



This old white tureen is my new favorite to add to my ironstone collection.
Just love that wonderful shape.
 Upon an Internet search, I found that this piece is French;
probably from the 1930's.



and a pristine set of four white European linen
 monogrammed towels from the same estate sale.



They are gorgeous and I knew they were a real find.
(Hubbs had his wallet, so I jumped on them!)





The silver cutlery set came from The Seed Box Open House last month.
(among many other things that I just haven't shown yet)



Then Saturday, I also found this precious little print from the twenties.

The night before, I had just visited Fishtail Cottage
with her post on visiting Farm Chicks,
and her local find of this same print and it's companion print.

I commented that I'd never seen one before.
And good grief, here it was in a local flea market so I grabbed it.
Oh how I love bluebirds!

This is just a haphazard stack of white china that I love to play with.


So, my new tureen is a test subject,
of playing with different camera settings.



and proof to myself
that I actually can "do" simple.




Hope you're off to a great start this week,
we had a little rain and a cool down for a few days.
Enough to water the grass,
and give me a break from the hose.

I'll see you Thursday,
if not before,
for my new toy...
a potting station!

I have a few photos from the sale at Pheona's Vintage Market
I'll share those soon!
