So, as you know, I buy a lot of utility china. It’s pretty much all I’m after, but it’s not all I like. I decided a while ago that I wouldn’t collect everything vintage that appealed to me. There’s just too much. How much can I collect, and store and use? It would seem a shame to have more collections than I can display properly. At that point it would become pointless collecting?
Before I made that very difficult decision I bought this tea pot with matching jug and sugar bowl. I love that it’s metal and oh so very shinny. I love that we use the sugar bowl to store coins in. I just love it in general.
I also love this cake tin. I use it to store cookie cutters in. I would like to collect more tins, but we have a ways to go before the kitchen is organized the way we want it to be so I’m waiting to buy tins. I want to see exactly where they would be the most useful and what sizes I need.
Is what you collect in reality different that what you collect in your dream world of endless storage and a maid to dust it all for you? Of course, this maid would dust each item with just as much love and care as you do. What are you main collections, and which ones are sitting on the sidelines, waiting to be unleashed?
I’m going to link up with Her Library Adventures and Flea Market finds, Magpie Monday at Me and my Shadow, and Thrift Share Monday at Apron Thrift Girl.
