Now firmly in the grip of nostalgia brought on by the changing season, I confess to disregarding some of my own best interior design advice…i.e. ‘keep it simple’, ‘less is more’, ‘practice restraint’… you get the idea. So this morning, with complete abandon I set about once again re-doing the Welsh dresser in my dining room.
Having lived with my paternal grandmother on and off during my childhood, I well-remember meals served on her Old Britain Castles dishes,
each shape depicting a different castle.
Oatmeal, raisin toast, and coffee liberally laced with cream and sugar, appeared each morning on Old British Castles – with the exception of her coffee. Although compatible in color, her cup was over-sized,
produced by another company,
with motif equally as enchanting.
I decided to ‘layer’ Nannie’s Limoges luncheon set with the other dishes
I am predicting that this arrangement will stay in place until I add Spode Christmas plates as the holidays draw near…or until my eye longs for the simplicity of plain white ironstone once again ……
