Blue Italian from Spode a.k.a. What I Want for Mother's Day!




Josiah Spode perfected many pioneering techniques during his lifetime, including in 1784, the process for blue underglaze printing on earthenware, from hand engraved copper plates. Spode's original blue and white designs have become some of the most collectible in the history of ceramics.

Now! On to the more important issue at hand! I believe that there is nothing wrong with a little planning and maybe even a subliminal message or two... just planting a little seed here. Because I happen to know that Big- Strong- Super- Genius- Husband and Super- Intelligent- Talented- Beautiful- Daughter both read all of my posts, I'm going to post about this so that no one in my family has the misguided thought that I'm not serious about this.

I really,
really DO want this.


What is it, you ask....
Well, IT is a Spode Bread Bin. Isn't it gorgeous? Isn't it just perfect in every way? It will be beautiful in my little kitchen. I can just picture it...
That's the power of positive thinking right there!

Does anyone think that was too subtle?
