I don't have a lot of handpainted china, but today I'm sharing four plates that I inherited. Three are from Bavaria and one is Nippon. (I am disappointed in the lighting. As I have said, I don't really get good light in my house over the summer months. I had a lamp on next to them. Maybe that was a mistake?)
I sat them on old August issues of Victoria magazine. So many of the covers in the early to mid-1990s were especially exquisite and beautiful.
|Alas, this one has become discolored.|
... be not careless of the good looks that nature has given to you, take care in dressing yourself and attending to personal neatness, that you may ever appear at your best ... Seek goodness and purity first, then strive to keep the body in harmony with the beauty of the heart. Take time to make yourself presentable, but do not use the time before your glass that should be given to loving service. Let your chief charm be of heart and spirit, not of face and form. Seek the true beauty which lasts even into old age. (from Beautiful Girlhood by Mabel Hale)
Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us.
Psalm 90:17 KJV
Linking up with Kathy for A Return to Loveliness.
Wishing you a lovely August in all respects,
