Vintage pottery and my kitchen bouquet

I recently found this wonderful large piece of old pottery. It's bigger than most pieces I find. I can't wait to plant something wonderful in it in this Spring. And I cannot wait for Spring. Until then...

Kitchen Utensil Bouquet

Well, it is holding a beautiful bouquet of sorts. I love kitchen utensils, don't you? I planted some of my favorite and most used pieces there.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, kitchen utensils! Great display of yours in your wonderful find. Been working on a couple of projects to display my vintage collection! Thanks for sharing.

I agree. It is beautiful and useful!
I can just see it full of lilacs, too. I can't wait to smell the lilacs. Those are my very favorite days of the year--when the scent of lilacs is in the air.....
Have a wonderful week!

It looks like Hall Pottery, I know you looked, but is it marked?
I love it and that color is to die for....
Lovely...

Very nice!!! You may decide not to plant flowers in it this spring. You may miss having it in the house!

I do love it! I bought a lovely pitcher that I wanted to display and that is what I did with mine. I loaded it with my most used bigger utencils. Love it and I know where they are ALWAYS and I get to admire my pretty pitcher! Have a blessed day!

Lots of uses for that wonderful piece of pottery, and you have used it well. It looks so nice with your kitchen utensils in it. I just did the same thing yesterday with a large milk/cream pitcher so I thought this was great. I never tire of playing with my home. Probably never will. I can tell you are the same way. Great idea...until Springtime! :)

I adore the green pottery. I'm lucky to have a few piece myself. But I spied that rosette iron right away. Mine got lost in the last move and I haven't made rosettes since.

I have been wanting to collect kitchen utensils and now I am going to...I have an old McCoy pot I could use cause I am scared it would get broke if I use it outside...Oh and the cup...I have that pattern...I need the platter and I will have the complete set. Oh I love this country windvane rooster set.
