On My Table

On my breakfast table this morning...a vintage glass plate (thrifted), a polish milk jug (bought at a local shop), a vintage Edelweiss butter dish (flea market) and a plastic strawberry sugar bowl(a swap gift from Jessica). Jamie wrote about watching for signs over at Create a Connection, Try Day and I have my eyes open. What really speaks to me is COLOUR, it can take my breath away and make me almost giddy. There is such beauty in orange, aqua is energizing, pale yellow soothes me and I can get lost in red. . I also love the beauty in useful objects like dishes and jugs, especially when they have a history. I often imagine where my flea market finds have been and who they have belonged to in the past.

A wide range of colours, mediums and styles but all very beautiful.

You have that magic touch when it comes to photo collages of colours and objects...magazine worthy and so much more interesting to look at when you know they are real things used by a real person!
I have a milk jug that's very similar to yours...my Danish boyfriend's mother gave it to me when I was seventeen, hoping I would marry her son. I didn't, but I still have the jug!
