Thanks so much to everyone who left good suggestions about my plates. I do have a large white ironstone platter with a green transfer-ware pattern on it that I could use for the centerpiece of the arrangement. The issue with the photoshopped images from my last post was that the scale wasn’t right. The plates ranged from six to twelve inches, but I hadn’t managed to scale them. There are also duplicates of two of the plates.I am hoping that in my travels next week, including a stop at Portobello Road, and Bermondsey Market, as well as some of the millions of charity shops, I might find several good examples of transferware to bring home. Lord knows, I am practically taking an empty suitcase (except for presents for everyone), so I will have room to schlep all of my treasures home. And you know you’ll see them on my Etsy shop, soon after.By the way, I do plan on doing some blogging while I am gone. I have a lot scheduled, including a trip to the school where I used to work to spend some time photographing the place with my soon-to-be new friend, Yonks. I am also meeting up with some other bloggers, some of whom I already know and some who will become new friends. I also want to attend the V&A exhibition of Cecil Beaton’s photographs of the Royal Family, taken from 1939 to 1968. I plan on taking a big memory card and an extra camera battery because I am certain I will be taking lots of pictures.
I’ve got a ton of stuff, both at home and at work, to do before I leave, but once I board the plane and take a handy-dandy Ambien, I will be on my way!
