Hi – My name is Kimy Stewart and I have a dish fetish. I know…I know…. there could be worse things in life than a dish fetish. So let’s just roll with it baby. ::::::turning cartwheels:::::
One of my VERY favorite patterns is Portmeirion Botanic Garden. Introduced in 1972 it’s a favorite of many. The appeal of this patterns hits so many different levels of ‘like’ for me — let’s see. They are colorful and interesting. You’ll find insects and flowers all different from piece to piece. A true British classic. They are whimsical and make me want to eat scones and crumpets immediately and talk like Queen Elizabeth all day. They are the creation of Susan Williams-Ellis who used early 19th Century illustrations as inspiration for these delightful dishes. She was born in Surrey England – a completely magical place I’m certain.
Now go make me some scones.
