If there was one thing that I said I collect
it might be pottery. I do not consider
myself an avid collector of anything,
and yet I find myself picking up a piece
here or a piece there.
One exception to this is my Williamsburg Pottery.
At some point over the past years I began bringing
home a piece of this pottery from every
family vacation there. We used to celebrate every
other Thanksgiving in Williamsburg with extended
family. It was fun.
They are small pieces but they have a special place
in our restroom on a shelf that is painted the color
of the pottery on a wall that is also similarly colored.
It really makes the blue design pop.
There are also the pieces picked up at a
yard sale. These live on the top of my
Corner Cupboard. For the most part they
live a pretty lonely life...but on more
occasions than anyone knows my eyes rest
on these pieces and a smile involuntarily
comes to my face.
I hope you have things in your home
that make you happy just at a glance.
They don't have to cost a fortune
to please your sense of comfort and
The final piece I am going to show you
today was inherited. Warren's Grandmother
had this in her home and it was given to
us when her home was sold.
The pottery is fun.
What it represents is the fun of vacation
with family, simple homemaking
and those we miss.
That is priceless...in my book!
Have a super day!
