Collections: Part Two

On a day that is overcome by WHITE, as the snowstorm rages on, I thought a light and colorful post was in order. So, without further adieu, I give you another peek at my collections. (You can see Part One here.)


My vintage apron collection shares space in the kitchen with some beautiful art from Lisa Kaus and Kelly Rae Roberts. This collection is more for show than use. My everyday apron gets the hard duty.


I love vintage clocks and this trio, including a Bakelite electric model, share the table with a vintage McCoy lamp.


Beautiful painted trays from the 1940's and '50's grace the wall of our family room. Thank you Ebay.


Of course, no artist's home would be complete without artwork from adored artists. Beauties by Mindy Lacefield and Kelly Rae Roberts (above) brighten my kitchen, while the artwork by Pam Carriker and Renee Thompson (below) graces the hall.


Thanks for stopping by on this cold and snowy day and do tell me what you collect.

Oh my goodness! I collect old clocks too...my favorite kind are called "cathedral clocks" because they are shaped like a cathedral window...
I love your beautiful way of displaying your pretty things and how sweet to see so many pieces my my sister, Kelly Rae in one spot!!!
I also collect old suitcases, toy phones and antique china and ironstone. We're running out of room.
Thank you for the peek into your home!

Love your old McCoy pieces. And the clocks, too.... wonderful collections. I've been meaning to blog about my newest obsession, antique transferware, so now I just may do it tomorrow. Thanks for sharing....

Those aprons! Lock your doors, or I may come steal them.... (just kidding! But they are tempting).

We were hit by the storm over here too, so I'm grateful for the bit of color you provided.
