green things

Is that corn growing in my geranium pot?

Weller vase I got at auction a while back. (Yes, it looks blue; let's call it seafoam.)

Roseville from the same auction.
Both have plenty of chips and dings, but that doesn't bother me--i have plenty of chips and dings myself.

Vase from Red Hot Pottery. I love it so much that I bought a batch to sell at the store--I thought they'd be a perfect fit, but they haven't done well. People think they cost too much, so I've had to lower the prices and they still aren't doing well. I don't get it--the pleasure I have gotten from mine is well worth the money. And they are hand made. It's hard for artisans to compete with madeinchina, but oh boy there really is no comparison.


  1. chips and dings add character... I agree with you entirely !!!

  2. Roseville is one of my favorites. It's hard to find them nowadays without chips, but they are so pretty!

  3. Quite different type of three fantastic vases!
    And each would be fit to eather simple modern room or classical one.Wow!

  4. Really nice vases, when I love something, a little chip doesn't bother me. I decorated most of my house primitive, so chips, scratches and dings just make it better. I've never seen corn growing with a geranium! haha!!

  5. Hello Jen:
    Your vases are lovely not least for their lovely soft, dreamy, misty colours. And, we feel, it is always good to have a selection to hand for flowers for the house.

  6. Loving your header. And of course your vases.

    People are funny.....maybe you should price it higher?

    More desirable?

    xo J.

  7. So luck to come across your excellent blog. Your blog brings me a great deal of fun.. Good luck with the site.

  8. You just never know... something i think is gorgeous, is a ho-hum for the person next to me...I think they are great, but maybe too contemporary for what folks are expecting in the store?
