Show and Tell Sunday!

Whew! Here it is 8:30 p.m. and I'm JUST now getting to show and tell...but, I didn't want to miss it! I took the pictures days ago, but had a busy day today. So, here they are, nothing fancy. I like to do broken china mosaics, so I won't pay much for china that may end up being smashed anyway! This first one is just a pitcher I picked up at the Goodwill for $3.99...I love it!
Next, I have a sweet little set. Isn't the pattern pretty? I'd love to find a teacup someday.
My favorite to use in mosaics is transferware, because you can use the whole plate. Red is lovely. I have a few brown, and quite a few blue, but no purple or green.

These are my favorite to use for cakes and cookies, and for display in the house. I adore the gold filligree around the edge, and the sweet flowers in the middle.

I could definitely go on and on...I have baskets FULL of china in my garage, but I'll spare you...
Happy memorial Day, girls!
love, Tammy

I had peeked earlier to see your show and tell but you hadn't had a chance to post yet. But your banner caught my eye...gorgeous.. so I kept peeking and was IN LOVE with your creations. Love, love, love, love, (okay, you get the idea!) your work. So inspirational.

Can't wait to see more of your creations!

Thanks for sharing,

I LOVE that creamy rose pitcher. The country scene plate and tea saucer is so pretty also. Have a great week!
