I love this little white duck pitcher. I can't find it in any of my reference books but I am guessing from the shape and glaze that it is unmarked McCoy. For $4.00 at a local antique shop that was having a 50% off sale, it was mine, McCoy or not.
I like using shades of red and green together and use a lot of those colors in my home. These little round boxes, one with a bird sitting on the top, also found their way into my cart at Home Goods. The napkins were given to me by my mother, who made them in the 1950's and kept them in perfect condition all these years.
I picked up this pink tole tray last year on Craigslist...loved the colors.
It and the little doily bouquet are a trayscape-in-progress. When I finish this one it will find a home on the mantle in the master bedroom.
This great old wooden spool was another find at a recent antique sale. I bought it to use as an "elevator" (my own decorating term, I think). Let me explain...
introducing the "elevator"! I placed the bowl of eggs on it to show you how I plan to use it when I find just the right object to display on it...
So, there you have it...some trayscape fun for a snowy afternoon. And a thought for the weekend ahead...
