new pattern:)




This pattern was inspired by the 1960s Arabia jam jar I've spotted on Meet Me at Mikes blog a few days ago. I just couldn't get those plums out of my head. I found the jar on eBay, but couldn't justify the expense. So, I just made up my own little Arabia design. I think it might look good on kitchen tiles and plates too:)

I love your pattern - my mother was very fond of Arabia wear and possibly that is why this reminds me of a happy childhood story. She had an Arabia honey jar with honey bees on it...that would make a lovely pattern too.

Oooh... look at those plums! Delicious! Would you believe I found mine at the Salvation Army for about $3. With the lid. And no chips! So lucky! One Lucky Pip!

Lucky Pip! I admit it, I'm not a thrift shopper. But now, I just got to do some antique shop hunting for this kind of gold! h:)
