American Limoges China - Chateau France

i recently found this lovely american limoges china

chateau france is the pattern

limoges china is named after the place it was made originally

limoges, france

from what i read, they stopped making it in 1930

manufacturers were already making it in the usa

hence the name, american limoges

22k gold filigree

beautiful countryside design

i found plates, soup bowls, smaller bowls, serving bowls

a creamer, gravy boat, saucers. it's all so beautiful!

this would be perfect for someone who does events or for a wedding as most of the pieces are plates in different sizes (only 2 dinner plates, but they would be great for platters), bowls, salad plates, smaller plates, saucers and the creamer and gravy boat for sauces. they are in fabulous condition - i will probably list them on etsy, but it is a big hassle shipping breakables - maybe i will list them for local pick up only. i wish i could keep them, but you would laugh at me if you saw all the dishes that i already have! thanks for stopping in - hope y'all have a fabulous weekend! xx c

the one girl pillow factory...

...was open for business today and humming like a top! i love making pillows!

but do get a bit stressed out at all the stacks of sacks and fabrics to stitch up and have to remind myself that this is my hobby! :-)

and you would think that i would stop buying sacks, but NO, NOT ME!

after all, they may all be gone tomorrow!

and, i am starting to get the hang of my new camera mr. c gave me for my birthday!

i think i am brave enough now to try the macro lens - maybe next time

anywho - i am rambling again - my favorite today - love this rooster!

thanks so much for stopping by to read my babble and see my pillows!hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

... at random, without definite aim, purpose, method, or adherence to a prior arrangement; in a haphazard way - this defines my week so far to a t! well, i mean i had plans and purpose, but it just does not feel like it... first federal jury duty - it is amazing what you learn about people when you are stuck in a small room with them for just two days - and now i am home for a few days - it is nice, but that rut keeps me grounded! soooo... i made some pillows...
i made a bracelet, i cleaned up and did some laundry, we cooked out... and it is only wednesday! i have a doctor appt tomorrow! that sounds exciting! right? lol!!! do any of you ever get out of the role you live in and then kind of flounder around? i mean, i am getting stuff done, but in just a haphazard way! well, it cannot go on forever, maybe tomorrow, it will be different - i mean the same as it is was before and i will be at home in my rut again!! xx c

aprons for sale...

aprons for sale... i feel like the town crier! but, these aprons are worth "crying" over! i am about half way through with listing them. it has been quite an ordeal...mending, soaking, washing, drying, ironing, taking photos - why oh why! do i do this - because i love it - remind me again! sometimes it is overwhelming! but, i do love the hunt and the feeling of satisfaction of rescuing these vintage textiles and sending them off to new homes where they will be used and loved. here are the ones i have listed so far! hope y'all enjoy the rest of your weekend! xx c

it's hot enough... why aren't we in sunny florida..... hearing the surf.... smelling the salty air....

...feeling the constant wind on our faces...eating fresh seafood!

instead, i am just playing around with my new camera and some coral i found on a visit to key west years ago....

hope y'all are cool and happy where you are! xx c
