This little dish, I found in a charity shop, and it was covered in thick gloss paint. Someone had used it to hold paint rather than had been attempting to paint it. I risked 50 pence on it, took it home and got to work. I scraped off the paint carefully and found this beautiful and exquisite hand painted scene underneath. The colours, pale and delicate but the gold still vivid.
These perfect little blooms plucked from my rockery this morning are very at home here. Inspired by Lisbeth via Lou's Nature in the Home.
