I love forget me nots too. The china dish with the forget me nots on it is gorgeous!

The pretty blue flowers that you have growing in your yard are are not Forget Me Nots though. Your blue flowers are Bluets. Bluets are sometimes called "Innocents" or "Blue Eyed Babies". Aren't those sweet names?

Linda said...

Becca said...

Laura,
I love your blog, and specially all your finding. Simply enjoy looking at all of them through your eyes...and the simple yet most complimenting comment you gave to all your finding.

You reignited the fired in me...to start blogging again...sharing things that I enjoy. I had your blog link-up in mine, and I resonate with you on "my symphony" by William Henry Channing. That is so true how sometime I am so overwhelm by the way of life in city and totally forgotten what really matters for me.

Thanks for sharing and I surely look forward for more. Cheers ^_~

Heb een mooie zonnige dag!

Oh, Laura, I love forget-me-nots because my last name is Knott. I use them in my basic logo for my art licensing. What a sweet plate you have found! I don't think I've ever found one with them on it. I do have your floral plate on the left with the pink flowers. :-)

You had a good day! :-)

Burlap Luxe said...

Thank you Laura,
You are a doll baby to leave such a sweet comment, I love those faded cream tones and if it has color to the paper I will fade it as well.

I love your blogs and pictures I don't always comment you, I know I should but I just come by to snoop real quick often and sneak away.

I will leave you more comments you sooooo! deserve them.
