green & white & green


What came home with me from Brimfield?


pottery



metal egg basket and vintage juice glasses 

(the other glasses are wrapped up in the egg basket)




book, published 1900



Aji wonders where the flowers are,
and if we're getting chickens.

  1. The pottery is nice - I like pottery, too, and am always picking up pieces at charity shops. Very nice copy of Bird Homes. I'm glad you had a good time - that's the important part.

    1. I don't like crowds and get easily overwhelmed, which is why I've never gone before. But I went with a very relaxed attitude and that helped. I didn't enjoy it the way I do auctions, but I'm glad I went.

  3. You chose quite chic goods. I love the colors and the pattern on the pottery. Any color of flowers will become with them well.

    1. That's true. I have very little white pottery (or anything) but I was really drawn to it--probably because of the display of white vases I showed in the last post.

  5. Love it all particularly the green vase. I'm thinking we need a FITH next week to show off your new purchases.

    We can change it to chickens and flowers if you give me a heads up.

    Always happy to accommodate.

    1. I don't see chickens coming into my life anytime soon, except for those who belong to my friend George in the country--he gives me fresh eggs every time I go. And I give him...a nice thank you.

      I could take the egg basket when I go shopping at whole foods though...it fits the whole free range, farm to table WF gestalt nicely.

  6. I like the green pot with a handle. My cat would love to get in the egg basket. He likes to be in whatever encloses him such as a laundry basket, a cardboard box, a plastic bag, a paper bag.. how about Aji?

  11. ha, I'm afraid I like to see your cats more than I like to see your vintage finds, even though they are great, too. are you getting chicken?

    1. Something for everyone. No chickens--only the accessories.

  12. I'm in agreement with everyone---love the green jug---others not too shabby though. I like that you chose the white. What I also like is your new header! Sweet peas and kitty cats will get you everytime.

  13. Hello Jen,
    love your new header.
    your kitty fits in just nicely with all your lovely jugs and photos.. he sure is photogenic.
    I think I would choose the smaller dark green vase with the stork on it.
    but the vases are all lovely.
