DIANE von FURSTENBERG Porcelain Dinnerware

Housing Works Thrift store was having a fall sale.  I picked up a set of porcelain designed by Diane von Furstenberg………….a nice addition to my dining collections.

Before I dine on it………..I decided to draw it.

I added my silver creamer to the still-life.

I used 25 different GRAYS to create the art.

I had a little bit of help………from Barbie’s boy friend.  He decided which grays I would use.

BUY your POT at the YMCA

The pottery class at the 63rd street Y is having a POTTERY SALE.  It is never to early to stock up on Christmas gifts.

DOORWAY at the Y


These are the 5 pieces I couldn’t resist…………

The BOTANICAL PRINTS in the background are from the            BOTANICUM book.

This pot now holds my TRADER JOE’S peanut butter pretzels.

The jelly fish platter awaits figs from my terrace garden.

I don’t need another coffee mug…………but I never have enough flower vases.

This ceramic tile will be used as a trivet for my “hot” dishes.

Now I have to figure out how to fit all my new pots onto the “coffee” table.
