To Serve & Display.

The home I stayed at in Glen Ellen this weekend had a lovely collection of pale aqua pottery and white ceramic dinnerware and serving pieces, and it got me to thinking I needed a few more to add to my own collection (above). So I went exploring to see what I might find, both on Flickr, and on Etsy, both newly handcrafted and vintage. Here's a look at some great inspiration for displaying your decorative vases and pottery, and those festive serving pieces too pretty to store away, as well as some Etsy shops that are great for finding new pieces to add to your own collections.

I LOVE Whitney Smith. She's so inspiring. I wish I still had access to a ceramics studio- a cupcake stand was always on my "to do" list.

I'm ordinarily a full color kind a gal, but have been gravitating towards white (and white on white) lately. These pictures are beautiful.

What a gorgeous selection of pieces. I'm loving those sprig cups especially!!

andrea said...

i love that clock. would it be ruined if one was to paint it a color, like powder pink or seafoam blue?

sfgirlbybay said...

andrea - hard to say, but if you masked it off carefully, i think you could paint it. perhaps take it to your local hardware store and ask what paint would be best to use.

What a gorgeous collection! I'm glad you featured Amy (On Bradstreet); she's got a wonderful home and this was the first Flickr home I blogged about. I recommend everyone who reads this to click that particular link.
