Hint, Hint...






Like Carrie was obsessed with Manolo's... my infatuation is with china - the fine bone kind  (and chairs! but that's another story)... Take me to the china department at any store in the world and I'm in, well, heaven... I have been in love with the Chinoiserie range that Jasper Conran created for Wedgewood for a very long time - the designs still make my heart skip a beat... But, I'm always on the lookout for different designs to add to my rather eclectic collection of china. I'm not particularly fussy about things matching - I love a table filled with mismatched china - I find that it's a great way to infuse different designs into your table plus you don't have to invest in whole sets of any particular design which makes means you get the best of both worlds... It also gives you the opportunity to mix new and vintage - which adds another layer of beauty to a table...
I love these designs by PiP for Liberty London - they are so pretty with a touch of quirk - which is how I like things to be... I can see these designs around a Christmas table - strewn with roses and laden with a Christmas feast... Ah Christmas, bring on the turkey...

I love these Pip designs too. I just used the pink bird plates for an event I designed for Oprah in Melbourne. She actually commented on how gorgeous they were!
