I promised I wouldn't . . .

. . . show you anymore McCoy pottery and I'm not going to.  Because I promised!  But . . . this piece is part of my collection made by Red Wing.  See, I didn't break my promise, just bent it a little!  I have many pieces of this white pottery and each of them is glazed inside with a light green.  So pretty - especially when I was going through my green phase!

I never set out to own collections of particular things but I always seem to be drawn to the same type of things so, voila!  A collection is born.  And when someone sees that you have more than one of something, they assume you collect it and help your addiction by finding more for you.

Don't the pink marshmallows look yummy against the green?  Makes me think of spring!  And I'm convinced that if we all THINK spring, spring will COME!

I thought the reflection in this vase was kinda cool.  And yes, those are wine corks and I'm proud (or should I say sorry) to say (hic!) that I helped drink each and every bottle the corks represent. 

And since I plan on being with all of my honeys this weekend, I'm wishing you a happy valentine's day today!  How many hubbys will be scrambling Monday to buy flowers and chocolate?

Me?  I'm expecting a little bling. 

I'm linking to Common Ground's Vintage Inspiration Friday.  Because my white piece of pottery is vintage and by the time those marshmallows are thrown away, they will be vintage too! (Nobody likes to eat them here!)

Have a pink, puffy, marshmallow kind of weekend!

Hi Connie, I popped over from Marie's blog 'Lost Bird Studio' and oh my..."I am so glad I did". Love your dreamy neutrals and touches of green and pink (my favourite colours).
I am amused at how you are all dreaming of Spring on your side of the world and we here in Australia are dreaming of Autumn (Fall) to escape the hot! Think I will have to do something seasonal for both Spring and Autumn on my blog to keep us all happy! Wonder what it could be??
Kind Regards

Lovely dish! I love vintage pottery, dishes, cookie jars...I'm just a sucker for vintage. I guess there could be worse things.

What are your favorite pieces to collect?

LOL - I just finished cleaning out a big drawer in the kitchen and was able to gather an entire mixing bowl full of wine corks!!! I had no idea. I'm probably responsible for imbibing 4-5 bottles full over the last year or so but who drank all the REST of the bottles underneath those dozens and dozens of corks!???? I suspect the hubby and daughter-in-laws. Unless my cats have a secret drinking problem. LOL
