A Little Bit of Blue Left!

For many years my home was done in Country style. And my colors were Country blue and Burgandy. When we moved to our new home 3 years ago, my husband wanted a change. So out went most of the country. But some things I couldn't part with. My Salt Glazed items were one of those collections.




Although I don't have a lot of pieces, the ones I have are special to me. Especially these two small crocks. I purchased them 25 years ago in Gettysburg on a wonderful trip I took.




I have mentioned before that I adore things with the Alphabet on them....isn't this cup precious?


These pieces were flea market finds...the one of the right, really a fake, but I found it at GW when I was shopping with Cindy, Karen, Marty, and Sherry.


I love this little dish. I need to find a stand to put it with the rest of the pieces....


I am linking up with Marty for Tabletop Tuesday and Sally for Blue Monday. I have company coming in on Tuesday, so if I don't get to visiting right away, I promise, I will. I hope everyone has a wonderful week and see a bit of spring around the corner. It is absolutely gorgeous here in the Phoenix area. Except for the rain that is heading our way. We never have rain...but we are getting more than our share this year. I DO have outside plans Sunday afternoon...I hope they don't get rained out.
*Added: it did pour rain all day...but my dear friend Misty and I went to the Windsor Historic homes tour. It was fantastic! Talk about talented people! Not allowed to take pictures, but it was definately an enjoyable afternoon....**

Good Morning CeeKay Sweetie...
I adore this blue pottery. I have several pieces myself as you know I adore anything country. The little alphabet cup is adorable. I can see why you kept these pieces, so special. Love the little piece you found at the GW when we went shopping that day. What a fun day we had. It was worth every minute of rushing.

I too hope your plans for today do not get rained out. It is always so fun to get to do something fun outside.

I received a call from my Moma early this morning to let me know that my SIL had a massive heart attack at the young age of 54 and sadly passed away last night. She has 3 daughters and several grandchildren. So sad.

I will be thinking of you sweetie while you enjoy this Sunday. Talk to you soon. Country hugs...Sherry

I too decorated with a lot of blue but with rust and barn red in a country/colonial style. Now it is coming back in style!! I don't have much left of my blue either - except my stoneware and dishes. I loved seeing your treasured pieces!

Oliva said...

Love your beautiful blue pieces! Our old home was country and in blue, and like you when we moved to our new home, hubby wanted us to go minimalist...it's so hard for me!!!

Susan said...

Ceekay, your pottery is beautiful. I noticed you even have some Williamsburg pottery. I wish I saved mine, I just sold about four pieces of the Williamsburg. I would have mailed it to you. I usally save everything. But I set up at the Flea Market several months ago to sell some of my crafts, and I put those pottery pieces with it to sale and they all sold. Daggone it!

I love your collection, Ceekay, especially the plate that you haven't added yet...the glaze is beautiful.

I hope your plans don't get rained out. Yesterday, here in Chicago, it was like spring. Today looks like snow. Sigh.

What a neat collection, Ceekay. I especially love the Gettysburg jugs, perhaps because that's close to the place where I was born. Happy Blue Monday.

Your pottery collection is amazing.
Yours is btter than the display they have at Old Salem. Theres just something so heartwarming about your pieces...

Connie said...

That's all I've got left of my country stuff, is a piece or two of the blue pottery. I actually more cream and brown pottery - than blue. But I was totally sick of the cream and got rid of all but a few pieces.

Now I have none of it displayed anywhere.

Enjoy the rain, you'll be complaining later that it's hot and dry.

My crocus are up...right next to a huge pile of snow. What a contrast!

Love ya,

Joy said...

What pretty blue pottery, I wouldn't want to part with it either. Happy Blue Monday!

Rettabug said...

I'll have to ask my baby sis in Gilbert if she knows about the Windsor home tour.
I think its great that you kept your favorites of this collection, CeeKay.
I have stopped getting rid of things because as soon as I do, I want them back again. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to get something & then remembered I pitched it in one of our moves. NO MORE!

Thanks for stopping by the Gazebo House, Honey.
Wishing you well,
Rett

That is so pretty, I've never seen anything like it I don't think.

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Ceekay...

Oooh...what a sweet collection of salt glaze pottery that you have! I must admit, I have seen this pretty pottery around but didn't know that it was called salt glazed! Hmmm...now you have sparked my interest in that manufacturing process! Hehe! I love the tall container with the basket of berries...that one just took my eye! I love the look and design of berries! I also really like the pretty bowl with the alphbet as well! Shoot...they're all pretty! This would be a really fun collection I think! Thank you so much for sharing it with us today for Table Top Tuesday! It was a real treat, my friend!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

Cheekay,
I love your collection of saltglazed pottery. It reminds me of my dear Mother. She always collected those pieces, after she passed I couldn't bear to let all of it go. I kept a couple of her favs. Thanks for sharing today. Lisa

nannykim said...

I love blue and white and this pottery is so pretty.

I live in a country type home. I always wonder if we move (when we retire) if I will break away from country!

Hi CeeKay Sweetie...
I have been thinking about you today. Wondered how you were doing? Hope your day is going well?

I have posted the information for the AZ Blogger luncheon that Jamie and I are hosting. I pray you can come. Please stop by and see my blog for the information.

Hope to see you there sweet friend.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Ceekay, these are beautiful stoneware pieces. I'm so glad you kept these. I really like the fake one with the little cottage painted on it. Love that dish with the alphabet. You SHOULD get a stand for it. Glad you had such a great afternoon. Maybe the rain is over, so Sunday can be perfect for your outdoor plans. laurie

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Ceekay,
Love your pottery. I too have a collection in Rossville, the blue spongeware styles and a few others mixed in. I don't have the country look anymore either, but could not part with those blue pieces.

Hope your rain comes to an end. We still had rain all day Monday, but reached middle 70's today.

Hope Rose arrived safe and sound. Give her my best and have fun.
Big Hugs, Celestina Marie

I love your salt glazed pieces. I even recognize a few that I have or have given as gifts. I rarely see it these days and don't have much myself. I gave pieces of this as gifts many times years ago. Thanks for sharing your collection.
