A Staffordshire Easter

“Be daring, be different, be impractical; be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers.”

- Cecil Beaton

Well it has been a while, hasn’t it?  Nothing like a holiday table to bring me out of blog hibernation.  My apologies for the radio silence - life, as it were, as well as some good things on the horizon so pardon my sporadic absences.  Never fear though, as an avid IGer, you can always catch me fancying about over there.

In the spirit of good ol’ Cecil, my Easter table this year is anything but practical and safe.  I sort of waited until the last minute, thinking that I would do a rerun of my blue Chinoiserie table from a few years ago.  But in a frenzy of inspiration yesterday, I switched gears entirely. Why not gather all my Staffordshire together in a riot of color to celebrate EasterColor me happy.

Happy Good Friday.  Hope your Easter weekend is colorfully happy.

I would love to tell you that I am not the least bit envious of your collection. *sigh* That would be a big fib though. Beautiful!

Very inspired! I love how it's possible to mix and match these pieces and create so many different looks. Chinoiserie can work any time of year! Chinoiserie Easter Table
