A Collection

My husband laughed....quite a bit actually.  What collection should I show?  I mean...am I supposed to pick a favorite?  I can't.  They are like my children.  You can't have a favorite.  You love them each for themself.
I could show my hymnal collection, my teacup collection...teapots, salt cellars...cameras?....frames....plates....kitchen utensils....rolling pins?  quilts.....snowmen.....nativities...
Get the idea?  Ok, so now you are laughing with my hubby.

Well, since I have them out now...because it is January and I always put them out in January to remind me of snow....I will show my white pitcher collection.  You have seen it before if you have visited last year January....but this is a collection PAR_TAY at the Polohouse and honestly, I am an only child and I don't want to be left out!!



 I am just crazy about how the sun in coming in and leaving the shadows!!

 A dear friend sent me this card a couple of years ago...I loved it so much I framed it....


Well....there is just one of my collections...hope you enjoy it.

I will also be joining Marty for Tabletop Tuesday....

I'd love to collect pitchers...I have a handful but nothing big. Yours are so pretty. And yes, the light coming in your house is magical...perfect time to get some shots in!

Enjoy your week, Ceekay!

Hi Ceekay! Here we go with a New Year! Yay! Love your pitcher/creamer collection. I have a "thing" for pitchers, too, and I'm an "only". Hugs and I'm following you. Hope you don't get into any mischief. :)

This is so great Ceekay!
Thanks soooo much for posting on your lovely collection of white pitchers. It's funny, I too collect a lot, a LOT! and thought I might even share a small listing of things I like to "accumulate" in an organized grouping.... and when I started to list (and list) I got jittery with the possibility that I may be turning into a HOArdER! Oh no! Not a dreaded HOARDER!!!

So I decided to only show a few and list none!

Love your collection.
Thanks so very much for linking up.

I don't think I have seen your white pitcher collection before! It's beautiful! Reminds me that I have a cream pitcher collection, haven't had it out in a long time!

Happy New Year!

Love your white pitcher collection - was just looking at my two and wondering where I can get more for a collection :) I think I'll try Home Goods if Goodwill doesn't come through for me soon. Your collection is just beautiful, I didn't see it last year because I wasn't around then, thanks for sharing it again. ~ Mary

Betty Sneeringer said...

Good choice for a post. I love pitchers too and have quite a few. Mine are such a mix of types so I am not sure they would make a pretty uniform posting like yours.

Sarah said...

Glad you joined the party. It was difficult for me to pick just one collection too. My husband just shakes his head. I don't think he's laughing. LOL
Your white pitchers are charming. The cabbage leaf one is my favorite. I have a few white pitchers myself. Never thought of them as a collection, but they sure do get a lot of use. ~ Sarah

NanaDiana said...

I love all your white pitchers..from large down to the little creamers. I'm with you- too many collections to pick a favorite- xi Diana

Vee said...

It's a wonderful collection and the white is perfect for winter. I had no idea that you have as many collections as you do. That's pretty incredible.

Adrienne said...

Oh, no I don't think you're crazy! I understand very well - I'm a collection person, too. I've just started to 'collect' white pitchers. It's funny because when I was in Jr. High school a dear, older friend gave me a little, white teapot, sugar bowl and creamer. I cherished them dearly and decided to collect white. That lasted until sometime a bit later and I got rid of all of what I had gathered! Oh, my - now I regret that decision. Do you know how wonderful they would be now? I loved seeing yours.

Sue said...

I love white pitchers, creamers, sugar bowls... Your collection is lovely, Ceekay. That Water pitcher is something I've never seen before and may have to be on the lookout for something similar. :-) Happy New Year greetings to you! ~ Sue

Chandy said...

Ceekay, lovely whites! It's harder for me to ignore the ones I see at Target each time I see them... Happy New Year!

Tanya@takesix said...

Love your white pitchers! They are gorgeous with the sun streaming in. Happy New Year!

Jann Olson said...

Not laughing one bit Ceekay, I am the same way. Too many collections, and I love them all. I found the Polohouse party after I had done a post featuring my Winter White dishes. Great minds think alike. Anyhow, that's the post I linked. I have a sugar bowl that I bought at a thrift store that matches your pitcher that says 'water'. Love your pitcher! Would love to run across one like it. Enjoy your lovely Whites!

Liz said...

Lovely! Your pictures are awesome! I like the white pitchers too. They are a classic.

Miss Kitty said...

Thanks for sharing your white pitcher collection...I love the term "winter whites" and your collections reminds me of that. I saw your post over at Alison's "PoloHouse".

Rebecca said...

I love your white pitchers...I have some of the same ones or close to them. I also have your black cloche but I painted my white! :)

Love you girl. You bless me.
