It's February, so it must be...

... blue paste jewellery, hand-painted flowers on china, little birds.... ... and patchwork!
Why? Because that's what Niki's calendar inspired me to find at home this month! See the china and the blue jewellery?
See the vintage blue and white fabric and the birds?
Here's the whole collection...
Sweet bird from a swap with Eli at A Bit of Heaven, English china plate from a French charity shop, and 1930s (?) patchwork from some kind of goodie bag my mother or grandmother rescued from a jumble sale in the '80s!

Very nice. I would love entire place settings of that china, the pattern on it is so pretty, if you have the set, then lucky you.

So pretty. I love that you do a monthly setting. I keep thinking we should do something of the sort, then I forget. Maybe next month :)

I love your calendar corner every month! I may have to try something similar myself next year (this year I have a baking calendar and I dont think cupcakes would keep for a month!!)

I must have been a magpie in a former life - I'm immediately attracted to the paste jewellery. xx

I love looking at your clever and so unique re-interpretations!
