Stone fruit and wooden bowls and trenchers ~ ~ ~ two of my favorite things! A number of years ago I started collecting stone fruit. I'd seen it at some of the better antique shows. The going rate was generally $30-$35 a piece ~ WAY WAY out of my price range, so I turned to my former best friend ebay (I say former because it's just too easy to spend way too much money there, which I did for years!) and was able to purchase it at a much more reasonable price. Granted, it probably isn't as old as the pricier pieces, but I am not a purist. As you can see, I got just a little obsessive-compulsive buying it (and I gave away many pieces as gifts to my BFF and to my SIL).
This bowl is on the upstairs landing.
On the dining room cupboard. Dining room table.
Living room coffee table.
the base of the stairs.
In the kitchen. More miniature fruit in the old pressed glass compote and life sized in the covered compote.
I should be heading to bed, but I still have not yet done my 10 minutes of hooking. Stop on over at Red Jack Rugs to join the challenge.
For those of you who "met" Frannie, I called her new mommy today and she did not return my call. I do hope she is doing well! I'll keep you posted.
Thank you for stopping by!
