As I have gotten older, I have stopped wanting/ collecting things.
I use to love to wander around Marshall Fields and Neiman Marcus to see all the pretty things.
Things I wanted to populate my house.
Pillows, blankets, furniture, Christmas decorations....
magazines and antique stores full of cute stuff....
And in the last ten years or so,
I just want to have less.
I am not judging at all. I'm just full up.
I want less clutter. Clutter is messy and hard to clean and we all know
cleaning is not my thing.
But in the last few months, I have been obsessed with Cornishware.
I do not know exactly why,
it's familiar cheery stripes....spotted in movies made in England...
So for Christmas Patrick gave me a butter dish.
(I ordered it from Amazon, from Patrick)
And all I want to do is sell or give away all my china and dansk and plastic plates and buy all Cornishware.
On my box it said 'made in China'. I was pretty disturbed by this because I follow a woman on Instagram and see her decorating/painting the plates every day. I did a little detective work and found that a new owner is working on bringing all the products back to the UK, but for now she is only painting the plates and bowls in England.
She also places the names on the adorable mugs.
Her Instagram is Cornishware_artist
follow her....you will like her
Below is a link about the woman who is reviving Cornishware.
What should I put on my mug?
Does everyone want a mug for Christmas next year?
They make pink!
I'll start saving now.
I want red too.
And that hutch and sink.
But it has to fit in my other obsession.....
I want to plop this down in my backyard.
With my little stripe-y dishes.
It would all be so much easier if I lived in England.
But perhaps I need to bring England closer to my family.
It has wheels!!!!!!
HERE I COME KIDS!
