DH's remotes by his recliner. ;) He does not mind my decorating as long as he can have his roost!
Fire King bowls. Have a casserole yet to bring out. Forgot it!
I do have a few lovely tureens.
The one on end was a Christmas gift 20 yrs or so ago. It has been used often.
Most all of our treasures we have owned for many years. If not family items they were purchased at thrifts, garage sales, country auctions or used stores. Not for a lot of money. I was junk'n long before it was the popular 'sport' it is now. I can recall the look on some faces when I would tell of my trips to thrift stores many years back...OH MY ! hahaha!
Have always loved old things even as a child. Not that I wanted to 'go back in time' to live.
Just loved imagining the life and times of the folks who used the items.
Love a collected look more than a 'one stop shop' one.
There are some lovely reproductions of 'prims' in homes online and in books but for me I like the real thing if I can afford it.
An item can be well used, less than perfect and be perfect for me in my world !

Changed my mind when I put it on the bed as is. Makes a nice summer spread!
This bed sits pretty high so sides are covered to floor! I like that part.
Have more to finish up for this room. Maybe this will be my productive summer for things house wise!

Pulled out some red, white and blue!
Yes the one cross stitch work work says Winter! I have to find the Summer and change it out!
I was gifted a pretty red floral plate for Auntie Day(Mother's Day) from niece which will hang on other side from blue plate.
I adore full walls! My version of the country English or French look!

So Winter is suppose to be behind us and Spring finally here!
Will have to find some tulips to replace them.
The napkins are toile print as are the plates. Love me some toile!
Even been warm enough to have windows open to air out the Winter Blahs! Or so we hope!
