I believe I mentioned this on the day I decided to use the pretty cut glass pitcher as a holder for my teaspoons. I had purchased it at a thrift store last year, it has been sitting tucked back (safely) on a shelf in my kitchen cabinets since then...until the day I saw a similar pitcher holding teaspoons in a magazine. Wallah!! Beautiful... It took about thirty seconds to locate the pitcher and place my teaspoons in it, set it on the kitchen counter near my coffeepot and "tea stuff"...and the rest is, as they say...history.
I can't tell you how handy it has been to have my teaspoons in that location. It's also pretty to look at. What started as a problem (having lost at least half the teaspoons in my silverware set over the years), turned into something quite pretty (the collection of pretty teaspoons from thrift stores). The cut glass pitcher is just a tiny bit larger than one would use for cream. I placed it next to the one-cup teapot to give you an idea of the size.
This type of serendipity "decorating" is why I love to look through decorating magazines (as well as Tea Time and others). How often I've had that happen, either I have something similar I can use or the idea gets tucked away in my mind where it later takes bloom at a thrift store, garage sale, or flea market.
The "side table" next to a rocking chair is actually two vintage picnic baskets stacked on top of each other. You can't see it clearly but the container holding the greenery is a vintage metal bake pan. I used to use the larger picnic basket all the time for...picnics! Now both of my regular picnic partners have grown up but we had some lovely times with our "loaf of bread, jug of wine (juice or sodas, actually), and thou" picnics. :) The rocking chair is the one that sets out on my front porch in warmer weather.
Here's a little bit of a closeup of the two picnic baskets. The small baker's rack was a $5.00 purchase from a garage sale many years ago. I used to have a rather large collection of bears but these are the favorites I have kept, along with three others on a stand in the main bathroom. This disposable camera isn't too clear but I think you can get an idea of what they look like. Most are "Boyd's Bears" that were either purchased or were given as gifts in more, uh..."favorable to such purchases"...financial years. :)
