I am visiting The Polohouse.blogspot.com today and she is featuring her favorite collections. I have many..So I am showing just a few of them and in the future will elaborate on each of them. So here are “a few of my favorite things” (Wish I could sing like Julie Andrews!)…
Toleware trays. I started collecting these because I love the color of them and I use them in areas where I do not have to worry about the sun fading them. This one is in front of one of my fireplaces.
These trays are in a corner of my sunroom
A tray on a small table…
A tray above the kitchen cabinet
My Jadite..I started collecting these pretty dishes before they became a Martha Stewart sensation. So due to the great uptick in the prices, my collection is limited.
My Fiesta Ware collection. Bought my first set of Fiesta Ware for $20. Then it appeared on the cover of Country Living and prices went up…These are displayed in my Media Room kitchenette where I have a retro diner feel. I display most of my antiques and vintage items there as I sold most of my antiques when we relocated from Florida…
Norman Rockwells..probably my favorite…Lighting not good, so will elaborate on a future post…
Salt Glazed pottery..Just have a few pieces that I kept when I scaled down my collections…I am going with my goal of a more cleaner, casual elegant feel in my home.
Waterford..this is a collection that I am moving forward with..Love all things Waterford.
Showcasing two of my favorite things..Waterford and beautiful decorating books…
One of my vintage tablecloths that is hanging on the door of a pie safe. I try to display a different one for each season/holiday.
One of the stacks of tablecloths..You can see I am still decorated for Christmas..
Byers Carolers..one of many Caroler vignettes I have throughout the house for Christmas. One of my prized possessions is the antique Salvation Army hat.
And last, but certainly not least is my collection of Silver Springs Pottery. It is very sentimental to me as we honeymooned there a zillion years ago.
So these are just a few of my favorite things. I know I will be singing that song in my head all night long!
