Estate Treasure

It's Friday, and I'm spending most of my afternoon hoovering, dust busting, and spritzing my home. But this morning I took a little break to share this pretty biscuit jar I found at an Estate sale.

 I have quite a collection of Antique Brown Transferware, but this was such a unique piece I had to have it.

 For now it's found a home on my little side board, I'll have to fill it with something sweet. Have a wonderful weekend, and stay dry, it's Storm Season. xoxo tami

Floral Teal Pitcher

Greetings! I had a few emails asking me about the pretty Pitcher that I used to accessorize my Blue Winged Teal Table I shared
So I thought I might answer them...
Janet asked "Is it an antique?" From my internet search I believe it's early 1900's
Patty asked "Where did you get that gorgeous Pitcher!?"
We found it in a thrift shop in Bakersfield California, there is an Antique Row on 19th street  which merits a visit if you're ever in the Central Cali area.
Jennifer asked "Can you tell me about the pretty pitcher in your photos?"
This is an Anchor Pottery Piece, it's marked "white cement" and made by Anchor in Trenton Ohio, so it's American. The color is a beautiful deep Aqua and there are added flowers at the lip of the pitcher, which certainly adds to it's charm and beauty. I love it, it's value can get upwards of $300, however it was a steal at just $3.
We were picking for our shop but decided to keep this for ourselves. I'm in the process of painting my open shelving in my hall which is our linen closet, and this will work well with our aqua colored Ball Jars.
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for your interest!

French Bottle Rack Love

Before I go any further, Let me say...these photos are lacking!
However, for those of you who desire a pretty French Wine Bottle Drying Rack, and do not want to pay your Child's College Tuition for it...try Amazon
 That's where I got this pretty little thing!
 At $44 dollars it was a steal! Of course it's a reproduction but honestly who cares? ;)

It's just the right size, not too large, and not too small.
Perfect for holding coffee mugs,
 but there's so much you can do with them.
These pretty mugs are thrifted finds, I love all things English so they fit perfectly into my Cottage.

 We've had lots of Thunder Storms here lately, so today was the first Sunny day in a while. Mind you I can tolerate Rain, but Lightening and Thunder that shakes the entire building is a bit more than I can handle. I hope if you're one of the many folks who've been effected by those awful Tornados that you and yours are safe and sound, and warm and dry.
 Hugs, tami
