Display As A Collection

Good evening sweet blogging friends.
I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend.
As for myself, I took a week off for vacation,
and used my time to unwind from social media
and to work on Halloween items for our store.
Now I will need to play catch up.

I realized that I forgot to show you the other half of our hall
when showing our living room redo.
Here it is.

I call this my collection cabinet.

Blues, browns and gray.


I love the iridescent color of these civil war era pieces.
Half brown glaze stoneware.

Also the blue stripe stoneware.

Mixed together.

Amongst the blues, browns and grays of these
pantry boxes and wax sealers.

Wax sealers were used in early canning,
where a layer of wax was poured at the top.

Another wax sealer.

I like how the brown glaze is not even, but at an angle.

Looking back at the other display in the hall.

I hope you enjoyed this last part of our redo.

Now I have to ask a favor of you all.
I just found out my daughter has to undergo
major surgery in her neck to re-place
two vertabrae that are pressing onto her spine.
If not taken care of soon, this could paralyze her.
After the surgery, she will not be able to do anything
for 3 months...and Bob and I are hoping she comes
and stays with us along with the grands.
The surgery is scheduled for September as she has
to give her own blood for the surgery.
Please say a wee prayer that all goes well.
I so know the power of prayer.
Thank you.

Collection Blessings To All!
