Such a fun day to visit my blog today. I can hardly wait for YOU to see my blogging friends collections and how you can design your home around and with your collections.
To follow along and join us, please follow #whatIcollect on all social media. It is going to be quite fun. If YOU post YOUR collections on social media, I would be happy to share YOUR collections on my social media as well. Fun, right?
Collections and Obsessions? Hmmm…What should I call them?
I prefer to call them collections, and if I am not careful it could be an obsession.
Let me tell you why. It all started when I first got married. My grandma thought every home needed a sugar bowl and a creamer. This was my first set.
Well, then I needed some cups in the same colors, right? Touches of pinks, mauve and gold trim are my fave.
It could be an obsession because EVERY-TIME I walk into a thrift store or consignment shop, I NEED to see if there are tea cups and saucers. They pull me in. Really, they do…
Sometimes there doesn’t even have to be a match for the saucer. See what I mean?
The tea cup in the front left was hand painted by the same grandma that gave me my first sugar bowl and creamer. I love the delicate flowers, don’t you?
When she received Desert Rose Franciscan Ware as a gift, she made tea cups to match.
But, she did not stop there. She also made tea bag saucers with tiny ceramic roses. Okay-are you seeing where I MIGHT have inherited this collection or obsession?
AND, yes she made salt and pepper shakers to match. I know! See how I come by this honestly?
I like using tea plates and/or saucers as home decor, too.
To see how I hang my tea saucers without plate hangers, visit My Plate Gallery Wall post. It is super easy and will amaze you.
I am also working on a dining room table top using thrifted plates and saucers. I actually have been working on it for awhile (UM, years…). I am hoping to have it done within the next 2 weeks. I hope you come back then to see my work.
Collections and Obsessions??? What do YOU think? In my mind, I use them because I am trying to create a cottage feel in my desert condo in Las Vegas. It works for me. And, I love each and every piece.
So, let’s have more fun and visit my friends collections and design ideas, below. They each are incredibly talented and so you will enjoy every one.
Thanks for joining me today as I share my Collections and Obsessions. Make it a collecting kind of day!
