Have you seen the "Tapas" line of plates and bowls from Royal Doulton? Profiled in a couple of mags and some gift guides? I had the bowls on my Christmas list and removed them! (my list is always shamefully long) But even so, I can't stop thinking about how delightfully pretty they are with their pastel tones and swipes of color.
I wanted them for display just to look at them!
In other news, I recently came across a DIY project that creates a similar swipe of color along a white bowl and it reminded me of the RD sets. Check it out - how to create lacquered jewelry bowls.
Really great little project and the possibilities are endless!
