Another collection

Hello, all. This is going to be a look at another collection. To tell you the truth, the numbers of things collected by moi is a lot more than I realized before starting this blog. Some are small; birdcages equal three, and one of them is permanently on the front porch, planted with succulents. Others are much larger, yet I am trying to contain them to what  space there is, given how small the house is. 

I have picked up a few pieces of tableware, white with black words on them, but they don't turn up often. A small cabinet, a $2 find at a thrift store holds them now.





I found a two grapefruit bowls recently, but they were higher quality and sold on eBay for quite a bit, a nice surprise. On Monday I found another at the nearest Salvation Army store. It was .79 cents, less a 25% discount, so a price hard to beat. It is this:


It's the first bowl to keep, not sell.It may fit in the little cupboard standing on edge behind some mugs. It hasn't been convenient to lug in a stool and try to rearrange things yet, but it will probably get done on the weekend. My favorite is the small plate that says Croissants and Jam.

How do you corral your collections? Do you rotate pieces on and off display, or is space not an issue for you? If only one of mine is featured each week it will still take a few months to report them all. Am I the only one with multiple enthusiasms that need to be watched to keep under control? I hope not!

Till next time,
Michele

I have to rotate pieces because I have so much, usually a new look for each season or whenever the whim hits! Love those dishes!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I hope you will come back often!

These great dishes look wonderful displayed this way! You have enough now to do a tray-scape or even a breakfast setting (hint-hint).

I love these white with black writing pieces, Michele! I would love to keep them in my kitchen on open shelving, rotating them from time to time!
