My Grandmother had the most divine collection of china, some of which came from far and wide across the globe, and when I was a little girl I used to peer into her cabinet and at the untouchable pieces...until one day a few years ago, she gave me some pieces from her collection which are now very sentimental. The pieces sat in my cupboard for a couple of years until recently I started to get into the groove of, rather than saving things 'for special occasions', actually using things that I love. A piece of toast on her toast plate and a cup of tea in her cup and saucer have now become a part of my daily routine and one of my most simple but most special moments of my day...it really is the simple things!
Lately I have been thinking about mounting all the gorgeous pieces she gave me on to a wall and the more I looked at these dreamy pics, the more inspired I became. Loving the idea of mixing them with other pieces of art and going beyond the kitchen or dining area and perhaps featuring them on a bedroom or office wall.
Another reasonably inexpensive way to decorate a wall, I have found some of my most divine pieces of china in Op Shops, so if you love this idea, enjoy the fun of hunting for mix and match pieces.
Hope your all having a beautiful week! xoxo
