Such fine china...

“It's a wise husband who will buy his wife
 such fine china that she won't trust him to wash the dishes” 

~ Unknown author ~
1961 edition of Reader's Digest


Isn't that a great quote?  I couldn't figure out
who actually said it... probably a wise husband!

I loved these turn of the century images
of fine china, and thought you might too...
wouldn't they make pretty coasters?

I've reduced the size of the graphics
for 2 printables... have fun with them!

A few suggestions: 
gift tags, labels for homemade preserves,
stickers, envelope seals, tags for tea bags...
