I hope everyone is enjoying the short work week.....tomorrow is already Friday!!
I had a very interesting conversation with Em last night about paint color. What are our customers looking for? I couldn't believe the hub bub the coral bedside table caused. I associate that color(coral) with beachy or the dreaded southwest....can it be we have grown tired of whites and grays? I wonder....are you ready for color or is your palette still white on white?
That brings me to this mornings pic and the new FB banner. I was rained on by the Gods of Good Fortune last Friday and found 30+pieces of hand painted Italian dishes @1950-60. The colors are wonderful teals, blues, yellows, pinky reds on white. I currently have the pieces setting on the teal legged farm table and it sends oohs and aahs through the shop several times a day. Awhile back I would have walked away from these knowing that only ironstone is gracing the tables of those hip as zips. But, this whole new attraction to color made me say yes to the mess of it. I wouldn't call my findings scientific....but I think we want some color in our lives again....thoughts anyone? I didn't bring the breakdown of all the pieces home with me but I would like to sell this as a set first and if you beg I may separate....we will see. Enjoy!!
