Pearls and Lace Thursday #17

I've died and gone to Heaven, and the Table was set with THIS!!

Actually, it will be BETTER than this when we get to Heaven!!!  But here on earth, this is the closest I've ever even DREAMED of!!!
Hand Painted Lovliness, done by a lady who used to write for a hand painted china magazine in the early 1900's.  She was very possibly one of the best china painters of her time.

It's my turn to take care of it now, and I'd like to share its beauty with you.

No, not a Limoges piece, but does it REALLY matter???
Not to me!!!
Please join me this week for Pearls and Lace Thursday and show off something lovely from your collection.  Whether it be a piece of lace, a piece of jewelry, or anything lovely, we'd love to see it!!

That´s a bowl to dream of. I suppose this one is the only one. Lucky you.

That hand painted bowl is so gorgeous! It is a piece of art that can be used for so many things but is beautiful enough all by yourself. Have fun!

Hello Doni- Thank you for visiting and leaving such kind words. I am feeling better. This bowl is quite dream like. And before I leave I have to say that your header is also quite lovely. Take care.

Breathtaking! What a talented, talented lady! You are absolutely right that it doesn't matter that it isn't Limoges.

FABULOUS!!! I adore painted China too, amazing to me that so many of the pieces are hand painted by amazing Artists... like miniature oil paintings on something useful... does it get any better than that really?! *smiles*

Dear Doni... thanks for stopping by, leaving such sweet comments and joining me in my first ever linky party! I used the linky tool from your page as I think it is so much fun and such a good idea to share and connect with others. Laughed at your comment about DH possibly walking in while you're enjoying eye candy... since when The Man does as I'm doing that he always assumes I'm trying to BUY IT! *WINK* Have a great weekend!

Your hand painted bowl is exquisite. Lucky you to have it in your care. Thank you for joining my blog, it is so nice to meet you and see your beautiful blog. The header on my blog is actually a picture of the vignette on top of my guest room armoire. I don't play the violin but just wished I could. You are blessed that you can play. Thank you for your kind comments and I'm sure we will continue to visit.

Doni, your bowl is a lovely treasure. I love both Limoges and Bavarian Hard Paste Porcelain. To me they both feel the same and are just as beautiful. Your bowl is so beautifully hand painted. Such a lovely piece! Thank you for sharing it. Hugs, Beverly
