These belonged to my grandmother. They are probably from the 30's or 40's. They are made of tin and are hand-painted. They are supposed slip on top of plain or clay flower pots to make them look more decorative! I love them as is... just standing alone.
I love chalkware! Shown here are some examples of my fruit chalkware that hangs all around my vintage kitchen. It's so colorful and fun! I found the large apple shown in the center at one of my favorite local thrift shops just laying on a shelf mixed in with other junk. I am so glad I spotted it!! And, it was 50 cents!!
Hey... so my BLOG was featured on another BLOG! Cool!
See picture above where she chose her favorites from my blog!
I came across Lara's Etsy store and saw that she had some very cool vintage items. From there I clicked on her links and found her Texas based shop called ENID and also her BLOG, Designer / Collector. If you are ever in Fredericksburg, Texas you'll have to check out her shop or visit it online at: http://www.enidlifestyle.com. Thanks again Lara!
George spotted this fabulous, mid-century vintage portrait at a cool old book/antique shop in Old City, Philadelphia this past Sunday. What a find!! Signed SLATER '56 upper right corner and on the back there is a label from the Newman Gallery on Walnut Street.
