~~~Favorites On The First!!!~~~

 Our good friend, Alison hosts a fun party on the 1st of each month, called Favorites on the First! I wanted to join in so I took a few shots of SOME of my favorite containers!!! I LOOOOVE blue and white containers, jars etc. I have an orchid, that I got as a house warming gift in this planter that sits on my blue and white garden seat. Next to it is a fern in another planter. A close up of the planter is at the end of this post. Here is my curio filled with blue and white jars.
 This very large planter holds my faux olive tree and my BIL made!!!
 This super large jar was a gift from my son. he has a shop in New Hope, Pa. for several years and got one for the shop and one for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 I really love this handled basket/planter. I just got this new ivy the other day and planted it in here.

 This is an arrangement I made several years ago. It used to be in a bathroom at the old house. I added the tall sticks just recently to give it some drama and height for this spot. I love how it looks like there is moss growing on it.
 I have 2 of these carved wood vases. They are from India and were my in-laws. I am SUCH a lucky girl to have inherited all the beautiful things that I got from them!!!!!!!!!
 Here is the stairway with some more of my blue and white jars. Please pardon the piece on the steps, it is to go upstairs and I didn't see that it was in the picture:):)
 This is the vignette that is currently on the morning room table. I just got the moss balls yesterday. The demijohn WAS the only one I had til yesterday................
 I placed a branch in it, that I got yesterday too.
 Here is my NEW demijohn. It is really large and I will probably move it from here but wanted to show you. The tall wicker piece is actually a fish catcher, that fishermen in Japan use. I put some bamboo sticks in it.

 This golden jar is a recent purchase. I got it a few months before we movd here, knowing it would be great in this house. It is large and HEAVY.
 Here is the green jar that I did with hydrangeas from the old house and some berry picks.
 Love the handles.
 Here is another comtainer that has an arrangement of faux succulents. The leaf border is raised and I love that detail.

 My favorite teapot.
 Love these very unusual candle holders.
 Here is the close up of the planter in the first shot.
So, there you have it. I have alot more I could share with you and will in a leter post. Have a GREAT weekend my friends!!! There is a get together tonight at our club house and then on Sunday we will be watching the Super Bowl. Tomorrow I will be cooking for that. XO, Pinky

I love that you are partial to beautiful Chinese things...I too adore them!! I love every lovely piece you have, specially your son's gorgeous piece, something that large always makes a statement and better in blue and white. Happy weekend to you.

Pinky, you have a serious collection of blue and white. So many beautiful pieces. Love the way they march up the stairs. I haven't added any new pieces to my group in years, but would love to find a large pot for the jade plant my husband gave me last year. Thanks for sharing this wonderful group of containers.

Pinky, I don't think there's anything prettier than a blue and white container with an ivy or fern in it. LOVE that and love your collection..also the green vase with hydrangeas, too. All are so pretty.

First of all, I love your new page design. I love all of your blue & white containers, vases, etc. I really like the container that looks like it has moss growing on it and love your entry way which I can see! Your morning room table vignette it just beautiful and I really love your fish catcher with the bamboo in it! Last, but not least, I really, really love your teapot and those most unusual candle holders. Everything is just gorgeous!

Alison @ The Polohouse said...

Hi Pinky!

LOVE your blue and white pieces. The huge one from your sweet son is amazing!

The new fish catcher is so unusual. How did that work? How did they get the fish out once they swam in? Do tell!

Have fun at the SB party today! Thanks so much for sharing.

Would have commented sooner but I was on college visits with my daughter for five days an could not access the comment boxes until I got home!

Can I just say what a comfort to uncover someone that genuinely
understands what they are discussing over the internet. You certainly understand how to bring an
issue to light and make it important. More and more people should look at this
and understand this side of the story. I can't believe you're not more popular given that you most
certainly possess the gift.
