~ Estate Sale Tales - The Digital Chapters

Chapter 3

The spirited owner of these treasures (who was deep into her 90s when she passed on) seemed to have a fondness for dishware -- much as I do. This gorgeous, gold-trimmed, white china was just one of several carefully-kept sets I had the opportunity to shoot during the Estate Sale walk through.

For reasons I haven't quite deciphered (yet), the original photo, above, was one of my favorite captures of the day.

I've never had any interest in owning a set of china -- until I fell in love with these plates, cups and assorted lovelies. The artwork is coming easy for these, and in unexpected variety. There are several different photos of this set, and I can't glance at them without images and ideas popping into my head.

Like last weeks 'red' dishware, this image source will not soon run dry. Which is, indeed, a very good thing!

  1. These are gorgeous! You do so many amazing things with your photographs. I have two favorites in this post, the second picture that looks like a metal disk and the really colorful one. The colorful one looks almost like it has ancient symbols hidden within it. Love that!

  2. I can see you are having a wild time with these. Talk about the reincarnation of a china dish.
