I could not be happier with these vintage English dishes I scored this past weekend at my local semi-thrift. It was not a full set but I did get 4 dinner plates and 4 salad/luncheon plates for the most wonderful prices of $2! Best part besides the very cute Fall print is that the dinner plates are a nice reasonable size that makes you feel like you have a full plate even when you are trying to be more conservative with the portions! I have them washed and ready to put away till Fall but gosh.. I am enjoying them so much that I might just move them into rotation now for the total way that they make me smile.
The next thing to make me smile is the little birdies I have been making out of paper clay and rusted wire. I love the way the paper clay feels in my fingers as I hand form these sweet little tweets. This little guy has on his first coat of paint and is sitting patiently as he dries and gets ready for details and antiquing. I plan to give a few of these away for sweet Spring gifts to a few crafty folks I know who will appreciate them :) If you think you are one of the people who would appreciate one of these to make your Spring brighter leave your name in the comments and maybe one will fly your way soon :)
