|I've decided I really want to start collecting earthenware pottery. |
The deep green glaze on this piece of stoneware is so stunning.
|All the storage you could ever want, in the most spectacular rustic form. I'd put these both in the same kitchen, the small one on a counter, the big one against the wall.|
|Just imagine this beautiful wide mouth bottle spilling over with freshly picked tulips.|
|These amethyst hurricanes are so subtle yet glamorous that they have a very modern feel. You could put them on a mantel and do a whole jewel toned theme.|
|Breathtaking painted furniture like this settee was produced in several shops in downtown Portsmouth at the very start of the 19th century.|
|These are amazing. AMAZING. I want these. WANT THEM!!!|
|The apple green color of this blanket chest is show stopping. I'm picturing it bedecked with a mound of colorful gourds and pumpkins for fall.|
|This is why I love antiques. Look at those hands pointing at the spirits bottle and glasses on this antique game board. I mean really, that's hilarious.|
|A moody impressionist painting that reminds me so much a this little lake we used to visit in North Central CT.|
|This group of 20th century art pottery is practically glowing in warm hues of green. |
The large vase on the left is my favorite.
|Ah, you know I'm such a sucker for antique trade signs. Lately I've been thinking of just collecting the black with gold lettering ones, so my collection can feel cohesive. |
This is a very fine example, late 19th century, with very nice lettering.
|I've been wishing for a few of these lovely hanging lamps for quite sometime. My indoor porch has very high ceilings, and I think a cluster of them would be so dramatic.|
|The perfect sign for anyone ever with a summer home by the shore.|
|A wonderful trompe l'oeil fire board in the form of a fireplace. A fire board is also on my wish list.|
|Another cheeky trade sign with funky lettering.|
|I bet this will be my mom's favorite thing in the sale. It's a schoolgirl watercolor on silk scene of a lover's tryst. She's looking demure and dainty and he looks wicked chuffed.|
|And finally this fabulous antique cupboard. I find one of the best places to get inspiration for new furniture colors is these tremendous 19th century folk pieces. This cupboard is such a wonderful shade of mustard.|
