Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the Morning . . .
A song that I learned when I was little.
A song that was sung in our many sing-a-longs in the car with my mom and dad
and all of us kids on our Sunday drives.
Today, what could be finer than flowers in a Carolina Delft Tobacco Jar for Floral Friday!
While at my favorite consignment shop, Always Home in Durham, N.C.
I saw a Carolina Delft Tobacco Jar on the counter waiting to be placed on a table in the shop.
It was in perfect condition, but missing its lid. That’s OK, I can use it as a vase!
I thought, hmmmm, I could put the state flower in the vase; however, it is the Dogwood
and they are not blooming now, and it is not likely that they would be a Trader Joe’s!
So in went some Hydrangeas and Tulips with a few sprigs of Eucalyptus.
The Delft Tobacco Jar was placed on a Silver Tray, in keeping with the tradition of
Southern decor. I added the symbol of hospitality . . . pineapples.
A gold pineapple dish that was gifted to me by my friend Mary
and a small collection of pineapples.
The Swarovski crystal pineapple holds a very special meaning
as it was a gift from my mom over 25 years ago.
Back in the day, the tobacco jar was also used to store herbs, spices, and of course
tobacco leaves . . . The manufacturer of this jar is “Oud Delft” ~ ~ Holland.
This manufacturer dates back to the 17th Century and the decoration is applied by hand.
I am sure that after some research, I could find a replacement lid.
The lid was missing; yet there was a “Certificate of Authenticity” in the jar.
Thanks for visiting me for Floral Friday!
