Dear Petit Collectors
The timeless palette of blue and white –
how it always takes me back as a child
watching my Mum taking lovingly care of
her beloved blue and white collection.
Arranging and displaying each piece
to be admired and enjoyed by her and her visitors.
I remember each shelve of the dark mahogany dresser in the dining room
filled with pieces chosen carefully by her fine eye.
Today I am very lucky to be the carer of Mum’s beautiful collection.
It is now displayed in the kitchen.
Everywhere in my home you will find
touches of classic blue and white decor.
Even my miniature Schnauzer Waldo enjoys all his meals
from custom made blue and white Indigo Home bowls handmade by Dana!
My love for blue and white decor is also showcased in my miniature collection.
My collection features blue and white pieces by Pam Jones
and the rest of the room is adorned with
Masako Sharra furniture, a Lisa Johnson-Richards doll and a Charles Johnson painting.
Over the years we have all admired the talents of artisans like
Jack Cashmere, Muriel Hopwood, Henny Staring-Egberts and Stokesay Ware –
creating the finest in blue and white.
Petit Connoisseurs often offers blue and white ornaments to be purchased.
Do you still remember our 2014 Blue & White Collection?
Who can forget last week’s newsletter with
Cindy Lotter’s striking watercolour of the blue and white vase filled with red roses?
Petit Connoisseurs is fortunate to showcase
the talents of two South African miniature artisans
that both create such wonderful blue and white pieces.
I have great admiration for their work.
I am so happy to announce that I have just added
their latest collections to Petit Connoisseurs.
How about a quick glimpse of what you can expect to see?
The talent of Elmarie Wood-Callander –
The talent of Pam Jones –
Have a happy weekend with your miniatures.
