I've been editing my (junk) many collections to a mere few.
There was a period in my recent past
where if I saw something I liked, I bought it. . .
with the theory of "If you love something, you'll find a place for it".
And find places, I did. . .
until every closet, cupboard, drawer, shelf
and stowaway place was filled to overflowing!
Once, I totally committed to my Traditional Style of home decor,
the editing process has been fairly easy.
Bordallo Pinheiro has to be one of my favorite collections!
I feel fortunate that with each and every year and Season,
I am still able to find pieces to enhance my collection.
This grapevine leaf tray is the newest addition to my collection.
While I had hoped that it would fit within the shelves of the built~in
Dining Room china cabinet On Crooked Creektt, that was not the case.
So~o~o. . .
since I already had the shelves emptied,
I brought up the entire collection for our viewing pleasure.
Not only do I have a great beginning of Bordallo Pinheiro
cabbage dessert / salad plates and bowls, I've also, added other patterns.
Blending my Majolica pieces amidst the collection
breaks up the monotony of a single hue of green
while enhancing the overall visual appeal.
In the beginning,
I was smitten with the cabbage leaf design edged with brown.
I find myself seeking out the more uniquely designed grapevine leaf pieces.
Harmoniously blending Bordallo Pinheiro with Majolica pieces
and distributing a few "green" faux asparagus and cabbages
brings about an interlude in green On Crooked Creektt.
On Crooked Creektt,
inspiration in the form of a Bordallo Pinheiro grapevine leaf tray
provides a touch of Springs awakening to our Dining Room.
Until next time. . .
On Crooked Creektt will be joining
And. . .
