Less Than Perfect China





Using less than perfect china can create some lovely statements...My first passion is adding the china to outdoor garden spaces.. tucking and securing china in wreaths for a sweet treat.. A garland of old china... Garland pic above is taken from the website http://www.robomargo.com ..... you may want to stop by and visit this site... It is loaded with very interesting ideas... As I ready for a sale... I have made myself a promise to try and use some of my china in my outdoor spaces rather than take a dollar or two at a sale for it... This budget friendly task I will make work and I do love the look.... I will share more pics... I had purchased about 8 dessert plates in pink roses and had a plan on making a corner border with them in my garden space along our privacy fence for the pool.... I got them out and decided I couldn't bury them in the ground as they were just too nice so I will be serving some little treats from them in the garden instead.... The sun is shinning in our area today for the first time in several days... Hopefully the grey skies and rain have passed for a few days... I would like to get outside later today and finish a few ideas... Planting is out as the ground is very saturated.... I am looking forward to seeing more lovely outdoor spaces of others.... Some of the bloggers have already shown some outstanding spaces... I just want to come a visit and enjoy.... Have a blessed and wonderful day..... I am off to fill the cupboards and fridge.....

You have inspired me to add more china to my outdoor spaces. Love the china in the vintage baby bathtub. I have two sitting in
the shed I have planted flowers in before but like the china better. Can't wait to see what you do next.

Oh my goodness, what wonderful ways to use china...You are always thinking! And I love your new header. I am looking for totally broken china, I am thinking about using the broken pieces to do my counter top in the kitchen. I love how it looks and why not???
Have a wonderful Day, Mary

Hi Marietta! You come up with such unique and wonderful ideas!!!

It's too wet to plant here this week too and I'm just itching to get out there and dig in the dirt...probably a little too early anyway...

Enjoy the rest of your week ~
