Collections

I'm sharing my collections today and joining Suzanne at Privet and Holly, where bloggers are sharing their collections this week.

Suzanne said "I'd love to peek in your window and see what you collect.....or to hear what things you hold dear to your heart."  These are my favourite collections ~lots of pictures and few words today.

Vintage Mason Jars ~especially aqua ones!




  White pitchers, White dinnerware, dishes and platters, Vintage table linens with lace and crochet details in whites. 









Galvanized pails and watering cans




Washboards ~ only 4 but I love them.

 Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to see the other links at Privet and Holly. You definitely want to read Suzanne's lovely insight into collections. What do you collect?

  10. The washboards are fun and remind me of my mom who always looked for them in antiques stores.

  13. I love the watering cans and buckets. I have two of each and use them all the time. The vintage aqua mason jars always catch my eye. I do have a question. It appears that the ones you used as vases have the lids on. I have not seen lids like the one you have the spoons in. Are the ones on your table with flowers like the one with the spoons? I am so interested in this.

  14. Of course, you saw
    that I also adore
    the aqua canning jars!
    Love all of these
    things that speak to
    you and I would snap
    any of them up in
    a minute as they are
    just my style, too : )
    Thanks for joining my
    collector's party and
    letting us take a wee
    peek into your window
    at all your special
    collections, Elizabeth!
    xx Suzanne

  15. To answer a few questions, the lids are original to the jars. They are two pieces, the zinc ring lid with a matching glass top with crown (that I have to remove to display the flowers.) I will share photos of the three pieces as soon as I get a chance.
