blue monday

Oh my, I am not feeling too well, thanks to a bad piece of seafood. And am not really up for an ambitious post today. But, I thought I would share another fantastic piece of porcelain from the National Gallery's collection ~ a delicate blue covered bowl (Qing Dynasty, Kangxi period, 1662/1722). Something cool and pale for a hot, humid day.

Such a lovely piece. Hope you are feeling much better now.

And just when I thought you'd purchased a new piece! What a beautiful shade of blue.

Perhaps, like me, you should prohibit all "fruits of the sea"! Hope you are on the mend.
