Harker Hotoven Chinaware
"The oldest pottery in America"
I should be painting. No, I should be catching up on paperwork. No, I should be...... so I'm cleaning cupboards. I do my best when I listen to what is calling my name. I'm just hoping that tomorrow painting is calling my name.
This time of year I love to go through the cupboards and rearrange things a little. It's just part of my nesting thing, I guess. I did purge quite a bit today - getting rid of a lot of duplicates and things that were just plain worn out. I'm not getting rid of these two pieces of colorful china. I love the colors!!! I don't have a good place to display these, but I should come up with something - they are just too pretty to stick up on a top shelf and shut the door.
Yesterday I spent a little time in Bed Bath and whatever, looking at everything and buying some salad plates. I decided I should really satisfy my need for "new" by digging out some things from my own cupboards and china cabinet that I haven't seen for awhile. It's been fun, and my kitchen is in better shape - some things taken away, not added.
Tomorrow I'll work on some sketches of the dish in the foreground - it is a challenging shape.
One more step to go, and that is to actually get the stuff I purged out of the house. Why is that the hardest part?
