Hello, my name is
Hello, my name is Sarah and I am a pottery junkie. I remember quite clearly when it started. At some point during the summer I had been decluttering some stuff, and I took everything off the bedroom mantle.
We were driving to the flea market and a light bulb in my head went off and I thought, "Self, you need to collect pottery to put on that mantle."
And so I did. And very quickly the mantle was full.
So, I emptied a shelf in the kitchen and starting putting some there. (Ignore the weirdly placed chandelier. It is so dark at dinnertime right now that I needed a little extra light during the winter months. Yes, I have a lot of chandeliers. They could be their own post.)
And now that shelf is full too. And I am dreaming of garage sale season, where I hope to find enough pottery to fill up the china cabinet in the living room.
I did say I was a junkie, didn't I?
When my husband said, "Dear, what am I supposed to get you for Valentine's Day?" I said, "Pottery of course." It was hard to choose. I wanted it all. I love this vase though, with it's flowers and the bows on the sides and the gorgeous color.
When I was in the bookstore buying his Valentine gift, I caught sight of this book in the bargain section. I picked up not even caring what it was about. Look at all that pottery!
I love the heavy, smooth feeling of it. The colors, the soft shapes. Love it all.
I cannot wait until Jack is older and I can have shelves like these.
Love pottery? Have you seen this collection ? Or this one ? Or this one ?
What are you dreaming of finding when the weather gets warmer?
P.S. I am going to try and go back and tag all my pottery posts so you can see my collection better. I think nearly every piece has already been photographed for individual junking entries.
P.P.S. Hallelujah! Spellcheck has returned.
