Welcome to Seasonal Sundays # 82.
So now that the holidays are over, including the Epiphany, what are you up to? My house is in a bit of a tumult, as we are defrocking it from the Christmas holidays. Just after Thanksgiving I shared all of my boxes coming down so I knew you didn’t want to see those again.
I’ve been asked to share more photos of my home, and not just my tables, on my blog so today I’m sharing a corner of my sunroom. This post is also in keeping with one of my New Year’s resolutions, to use more of what I have.These vignettes are not new creations, and there’s not a single new item amongst them. These regularly are a part of my sunroom. I’ve shared some of my tea pots before, but just a small sampling of them, so today I share a bit more of the collection.
This post also follows a theme I started in this week’s tablescape post. I LOVE blue china and have a ton of it. I’ve challenged myself to make each of my tablescapes this month be BLUE. It seems only fitting that my Seasonal Sunday post be BLUE too!
These items have been collected through the years. Some hold some very special sentimental value. The little china lady in her blue dress, orange bonnet and holding a basket, sat atop my Mother’s dresser throughout my childhood.
The little basket weave pitcher was purchased in an antique store while visiting in Austin, Texas.
My Great Aunt Mary, who lives in California, brought me this little blue and white tea pot from her collection on one of her visits , as she knew how much I love blue and white tea pots.
On my trip this past fall to Brimfield, this coffee pot was added to my collection (Bristol, Crown Ducal, England).
This square bowl was added to the collection, not only for it’s beauty but as I was intrigued by it’s markings. 'Made in France-Saar Economic Union', shows that it was made between 1947 and 1956 when the Saar region was an economic and political union that was part of France. In 1957 the Saar region voted to rejoin Germany.
A bunch of sock darners that were my Nana’s are clustered in this little pitcher.
Some items were purchased…
…just because I like them!
I’m trying to appreciate and enjoy my home more. What have you been up to?
Happy to be joining The Pink Pagoda for her Blue and White Bash!
