Hot Summer Days......meet our August Bloggers.
Cerelle B, one of the guest speakers at our upcoming meeting in Savannah, is back again for another stint and she will be joined by well know Quimper expert and author Sandra Bondhus, and Louise R will be reporting from the British Antique's Fair scene.
We're starting the ball rolling with this lightheated look at Quimper pieces sure to bring a smile to everyone's face.
To spread the sunshine I'll be linking this post to Mosaic Monday graciously hosted by Mary @thelittleredhouse.
If you have time, do visit Mary and discover beautiful collages from around the world.
The plate below is from the Long collection. All other items are from Sandra's collection.
I have found them on plates, chargers, covered mugs and snuff bottles. On every divergent form the little sun face seems to tug at the corners of my heart and coaxes me into a joyful smile.
It is a “Smile of Brittany”, which is reflected in the playful charm of this pattern.
Please allow me to share some summer smiles with you through the photos on this blog.
Come and allow me to invite you to stroll along the pleasant shores of Brittany and to vicariously bask in the summer sun through these fanciful faces, which so delightfully adorn these pieces of Quimper faience.
BONNES VACANCES EN BRETAGNE!
