Thank You 25K Instagram Followers!
Today is a special day, as it is the day that my counter on Instagram has ticked over to 25,000 followers!
And if you were not yet aware of my Instagram account, you can go here now to check it out - I post a picture and a story each and every day of the year.
In case you have been wondering why it's been a while since I last posted here on my blog - well it's been kind-a-busy! I've found and sold many new treasures and have been focussing on new large dinner sets, among other things. My first vase came and went, and there are some wonderful large tea sets as well. And of course I always keep looking for the wonderful tea and coffee cups that all my collector customers love and are always looking for.
But now about the 25,000 followers... It is such a pleasure to find something beautiful to share each day. Sometimes it is hard work, other times a spontaneous flash of inspiration - but I love the way this creates a focused stream of beauty and goodness and I read everyone's responses every single day, and love them. Those responses express the impulse that made me collect and sell beautiful porcelain, sharing it with the world - and everyone's appreciation of the treasures I find is what makes me get out of bed each day!
I've made a little video here with some of the most popular pictures on my Instagram feed (some of you are now the lucky owners of these treasures), and I put some favourite music to it - Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante, a piece I grew up listening to and later playing in my short-lived first career as a professional violist. But more about that some time later, I guess...
For now: Let's keep sharing the beauty!
