It has been many weeks since I have been able to post on VTT, and I have sorely missed it! I love seeing what special treasures everyone shares on this blog party. And I always enjoyed finding a treasure or two myself.
But this week I wanted to share a different kind of treasure. They are not really vintage, at least not yet. But it is an art form that is not being renewed with the younger generation. So please let me introduce to you the very beautiful china pieces that have been painted by my sweet mother in love.
My hubbys mother started china painting after all of her children were grown.
I'm sure she thought it was just a hobby to fill her "empty nest".
But she became quite good at her art, and continued painting for over 30 years.
She dabbled in painting glass, and has painted some very beautiful lamps.
She enjoyed it so much that she started teaching some of her friends. She even tried to teach me!
Almost two years ago she became quite ill, and has been on the long road to recovery.
Parkinson's has taken away the ability of my mother in love to hold a paint brush. So the paints, pallet, and china sit silently now.
I know many people think that painted china is very old fashioned. But I dearly love it, and have enjoyed these many pieces that were given to me by my second mother.
