Good morning everyone!
Hope you've all had a restful weekend and are ready for the week ahead.
We had a busy weekend and enjoyed the downpour of rain, which was very badly needed here. We had just enough to make everything green and gorgeous looking again, as our lawns were beginning to look a bit pale.
I think I have run out of moodboards for now. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed the research and putting them together. They may come back another time, but for now I'm on to other things.
I found this article in the current issue of Victoria magazine last week about these lovely blue calico ceramic dishes that are produced by Burleigh in England.
Burleigh is the last pottery plant in England that still employs the 200 year old skill of applying the pattern by rubbing patterned tissue paper onto the bisque, firing it and then adding glaze and firing it again, which ensures the pattern will never fade or wear off......click here to see how the process takes place. I found it really interesting and it's worth the peek.
I am embarrassed to admit I had never heard of blue calico, Burleigh, or this process before last week and I have to tell you, I am completely smitten with it all.
This calico print is also available in red and pink!!
You must check out Burleigh's website and look at all the other colors and patterns including a blue chintz that looks pretty special, too.
And don't forget to check out Victoria magazine here. I always find something gorgeous and interesting in this magazine.....
Enjoy and have a fabulous day!
