Beauty in common things...

(edited with Kim Klassen's Monday texture)
 Just a simple autumn still life featuring two of my favorite things, an ironstone pitcher and a transferware bowl.

Every autumn I think about how I'd love to have have some brown transferware dishes, but I already  own more sets of dishes than I need.  This bowl and the brown transferware cup and saucer I used in last week's still life are all of the brown transferware that I own.

My favorite things to collect are antique objects that were used in homemaking in bygone days.  Ironstone bowls and pitchers, transferware dishes, breadboards, interesting old bottles and demijohns.  I am drawn to the beauty in these common items.

  2. A great beauty in these things! It is important to use them as well.
    Oh, I have a little collection of pitchers (and a lot of other things, like old table coths).

  3. I love your beautiful fall still life, the brown and beige tones. Yes, I am a collector too of old things, especially of items which have been used in my family and which "tell stories".

  6. I have lots of small collections: jadeite, transfer-ware, baskets, old children's books, hand-painted pansies and demi-johns, some vintage suitcases. Most of my furniture is vintage or antique--and I do have lots of old books in general. I just love things with history!
