These are a few of my favorite things...

My mantle used to be one of those always changing vignettes of stuff...fun, but since I started displaying my collection of vintage white matte pottery there, I haven't been inclined to change it much at all. I just love the way the white matte pottery plays off of the stark white paint of the mantle and the old creamy white of the mirrors. All of the different shades of white seem cool in the summer like the cool white of sand dollars and seashells and warm in the winter like a creamy white knit sweater. This little vignette makes me smile every time I come down my stairs and see it. What places do you have in your home that make you smile everytime you look at them? Post a comment and let me know.

Until next time...

  9. Your white pottery is so charming! I have started to collect white pitchers and similar items. I love how yours is displayed. My wood on my mantle is stained, so I don't know if it would have the same feel. My favorite place to be is my hearth room.
    I'll be back as your blog looks very fun!

  11. Same with me. I used to redo a shelf all the time, but once I settled in some white pottery, I liked it too much to change it!
