corner view: dish




ok, the dishes on that top photo are not mine, but you'll have to admit they are exceptionally nice. i spotted them at a friend's house when we had that famous 1920s poker night last month (remember?). i really like things with history. this may be why i love browsing for pretty dishes on flea markets. lots of my plates and bowls, pots and pans, glasses and vases have a little story to them. brought back from a holiday, found in a charity shop, passed on to me by a family friend - or found on a fleamarket ... i am a hunter and gatherer at heart, i guess.

find more links to corner views around the world at jane's. enjoy!

love to rummage for dishes in flea markets too. have a few finds at home.
those golden-rimmed ones are pretty chic, though, I tend to go for the more rustic sort.

however, I went a "slightly" different route this cv round.
