AND so many collections are associated with food,
be it storage . . . preparation . . .presentation, or consumption!
Mason and Ball jars have seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years.
Inexpensive glass jars store almost anything (IKEA and Target carry them).
They make for attractive display and easily-identified contents!
Combinations of flatware and cutlery can also create easy and inexpensive displays.
Pantries, butler's pantries and the like have become showplaces...and why not?
It's great to collect items that serve an every day or special occasion purpose. Why keep them hidden in the cabinet all year ?
Over the years I've accrued quite a few "cookie tins" in France. They're all over the airport...inexpensive and easy to pick up before the flight home. In any case, I recently used them to organize all of my pens, pencils and art supplies...I love it!
or the one in the kitchen below.
Teapots and pitchers are other every day items
The above collection of teapots is STUNNING! I wouldn't mind having just a
tiny slice of it for my own display area! Pieces include Deshoulières, Limoges, Bernardaud, Gien and Middle Kingdom, just for starters.
I can only guess as to the origins of the pieces above; perhaps a mix of English and American pieces, including Bennington or Rockingham glaze ware and Majolica?
an exceptional collection by all means!
Several collections are represented around this cook top; the tone-on-tone palette keeps it from feeling too busy or cluttered. I especially love white pitchers on the shelf above!
Above is one of the most attractive and creative dish displays I've seen!
Why not take a second look at what's in your cabinets?
