~~~Continuing the Tour, The Foyer~~~~

HI everyone! I know you all have seen the foyer decorated for Christmas, but I don't think I have ever shown you what it looks like the rest of the year! I display more Asian pieces here too. I have 2 of these plant shelves that I use for display here. I got them YEARS ago because they were the perfect size! They have tile shelves so are easily wiped clean.
 This guy is one of my favorites. I found him at Home Goods several years ago and had to have him.
I love this jar too, anopther Home Goods purchase. I REALLY think they should pay me for advertising:):):)
This is a saki jar. The little green pot on the stand was a gift from a cousin who lives in California. She found it while out hiking and it is very old.

This is the other side of the foyer.
The jar on the left is made of pottery and the design is cut out.
I turned on the flash because I thought the last picture might turn out too dark.
The jar on the right of this shelf was purchsed many years ago at Epcot in Disney from the Japanese pavillion. On the left is another saki jar.
Another very large pottery jar is on the right and the one on the left is made of carved wood.
This is the bakers rack that you see when you walk in the front door. I bought this rack from a friend when she was moving and couldn't take it. I had always loved it. It is all metal and the 2 top shelves are glass and the middle one is wood. I love the doors on it.

The lady on the left was a gift from Joe one year. She came from the gift shop at Longwood Gardens.

There are 2 of these guys. I forget what they are called. They are some kind of soldiers in Japan.

I have always loved this tea pot too. The bamboo detail and basketweave pattern is so pretty, to me.
This is a TINY piece but very detailed.

  1. NOPE...never did see this side Pinky. What a beautiful collection of Asian pieces you have too. All so proudly displayed, love it!

  2. Hi Pinky! Oh, what lovely things! I don't think I've seen these before. Lovely displays too!
    Enjoy your trip and then you can come home and enjoy the laundry ritual.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. Who knew that Home Goods had such fun Asian items! Those guys look like the clay soldier my hubby and son brought home (carefully) from China - if they only knew they could have picked them up at Home Goods! You have displayed everything to perfection!

    I had to laugh at you saying that they should pay you to advertise - I actually had someone from the Home Goods team comment on my pink tablescape yesterday (or today) They said thanks for mentioning them! I thought that was cool.

  4. You have a great collection of Asian pieces. The soldiers look like the terra cotta warriors from China. We purchased some on a trip there. Thanks for your kind comments!

  5. Your home is wonderful Pinky!!! I love all your collections!!!

  6. I have always loved that bakers rack and all the oriental pieces you have displayed.
    You have such a talent for displaying all of your beautiful items.

  7. I love how you have so many unusual things. Home Goods needs to come to Baton Rouge!

  8. You have a very eclectic collection.
    Have a great trip!

  9. I absolutely love the the way the shelf display looks with the light shining down on it. It really showcases your beautiful things.
