Hello folks! I haven't gone into hiding - it's just been one of those weeks where I've done no posting, and very little visiting with you all. Sorry about that - some weeks just get away from me. But here I am, still in my jammies, sipping coffee, ready to share my new cake stand with you. I just got it on Friday night from William's Sonoma. There are no edible treats sitting atop yet, but hoping to make something today with Evy. One more picture to show the base.
My mom got me the candle and wreath from Stephen's Candlery, which is just steps away from my mom's house in Idaho. The candy corn candle and wreath she got me for autumn is amazing too.
Recently Mary posted about her soup tureen collection, and I thought I would show the "one" tureen that I have. I now feel compelled to also have a collection. Thanks a bunch Mary - and my husband thanks you too. I guess I'll be adding "soup tureens" to the ever-growing list of "things to look for while antiquing". I'd like to find a brown Transfer ware tureen to go with these plates (there are two pictures that sort of show the brown transfer ware plates, which you have to click on to enlarge). This tureen is sitting on top of the kitchen island.
This is an old stool that my mom found when we were antiquing in Buffalo, MN. I found the old scale during the same trip. I like how the bowl of eggs looks on top.
An old picnic basket that we use in the kitchen to keep games handy, and hidden.
I can never really get a good shot of this cottage print, which is chalk I think. I finally got a semi-decent one so wanted to show this area. It is our entry into the house. You can see a reflection of the doors in the print, which is why I have such a hard time getting a good shot - too much light shining in and reflecting. Off to my left is the vintage English riding helmet that I love and can be better seen in this post. I hope you have a great day and I promise, this week you'll see me around a bit more :o).
