Wednesday~ Tea for Me and Thee and White Wednesday 7/14/2010

Today is White Wednesday and Tea for me and Thee Wednesday!

Please pay our hostesses a visit!

Wednesday Tea For Me And Thee

White Wednesday

This is my first White Wednesday!  I'm so excited! 
White porcelain is one of my favorite things~
When I look at white porcelain I see what it could look like painted with beautiful decorations and flowers.....
Sounds silly but I ask it,
What would you like to wear?
Pink Roses?
Or... go totally WILD and put a little bit of everything on?
What color you you want to wear with your flowers? Or maybe we don't even choose flowers, we choose fruit or something else......
Pink? Aqua? Brown? Green?
How much gold do you want?
A lot of
BLING or under stated elegance?
Sometimes I know exactly how a piece should look and sometimes I change my mind several times through the process.
But ALL pieces start out WHITE
Definition of white?
White is the presence of ALL colors, so you can't make a wrong pick!
Here is what "Christmas in July" looks like to a china painter.......

I just got a shipment of white porcelain "blanks" and more is on the way!

Look!  Even my bunny is excited!  LOL!  Yes, I have a house bunny. She is box trained and hangs out with the cat around the house.
To be honest, she is more exctied about playing in the cardboard boxes and packing materials than about Mommy getting porcelain to paint on. 
I thought she was so cute streaking through my picture.  Shes a real attention hog!

So here is a twist on "Tea for Me and Thee".....
I thought you might like to see a tea/coffee set get all dressed up for the tea party!

There are several steps and a few times in the kiln before the set is ready for tea time!


  1. I can see why all of that blank porcelain would make you feel pretty giddy. What an amazing artist you are! That set is definitely going to live a more glamorous life since you transformed it!
    Happy WW!

  2. OMG!!!! That's talent!!! Welcome to White Wednesday!!!

  3. Your art is just stunning. Your house bunny is also just precious. Happy WW! ♦olive

  4. HI Amy,
    Wow, that's a lot of white..but yeah, I can see why that would make you overjoyed :) :) I think I'm that way when I walk into a really nice fabric store or knitting shop :) :) :) I see all that fabric and yarn and think of all the possibilites.
    I love the tea/coffee set that you decorated. Those are just my colors :) :) :) Thanks for sharing this. You and your artwork bring a huge smile to my face :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  5. Hi: Your work is amazing as usual. I wish I could learn to paint roses. You do them so well. Thank you so much for sharings these treasures with us. Blessings, Martha

  6. Such a neat post showing us the process! Lovely! Cute bunny too!

  7. Your work is gorgeous!!! LOVE this!
    Happy WW

  8. Hi Amy! I sure do wish they'd figure out a way for me to just jump through the screen to your house real quick for lessons on how to paint china...I think seriously if I could I'd even get on a plane and head your way!!!!!!!
    That tea set is just plain GORGEOUS!!! I love the excitement of a whole box of porcelain though....yummy!!
    Hopefully I'll see you for Pearls and Lace this Thursday. I'll get the post ready for tomorrow evening. Hope you can join in!!!
    Let's see now....I wonder if one of these buttons up here stand for "Send me through the Screen"....hmmmmm...
    Blessings!! Doni

  9. I am impressed! Of all the mediums you could have gone into, I am thrilled to see someone actually doing what I thought was a lost art. I collect old paper graphics for the artwork, because no one does it like that anymore, until I saw your blog! You do the old artists justice and they would be proud that you are continuing in their footsteps. You rock!

  10. Wait! I thought your bunny was a porcelain statue at first glance waiting to be painted! LOL. You are an incredibly talented artist. I never could get the knack for painting. Take care.

  11. Your work is beautiful! I saw this at White Wednesday...

  12. Oh I just love it!
    Thank you for sharing!

  13. OH MY,,all I can say is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. OMG, your work is amazing. I cannot believe you can hand paint china like that. Just beautiful.
