In Praise of Green Things
I adore green. A collection of green salad plates are my favorite pieces to serve chunks of cheese and sprigs of red grapes. Shown here with some silver birds I purchased at Golden Country Collectables in Weyauwega, WI.
Above and below: a porcelain hairpin container I painted.
Below is a vase I purchased at Unique Interiors in Greenville, WI. If you haven't been there to browse, you've really missed out. Outstanding collectables, very reasonably priced.
Above, a hummingbird teapot from Beth Schmidt's shop in Auroraville, WI. Beth can come decorate my house anytime--she's simply a fabulous decorator, with a keen eye for beautiful things.
Hancock Fabrics let me bring this sculptural green pottery vase home for a song.
Today, we shopped at Golden Country . . I bought the silver birds, and this green glass bird. I think it is a tea light container, but I'll use it as a soap dish in the bathroom.
I walked by this crackle finish platter more than once at Golden Country; today--it came home with me to hold some garden vegetables, and a few extra apples left over from making pie yesterday.
I have a feeling the clematis print may inspire an oil painting.
Below: Cash Family hand-painted cream & sugar. I use the set everyday and it sits right here in the middle of the large crocheted runner on the kitchen table.
I spotted the bunny tea pot at Beth's Shop in Auroraville, and at the same moment my friend Kathy found the hummingbird tea pot. I ooooo, and ahhhhhh over them both.
