Italian Shabby

I am having fun with this white 
wall in my kitchen. I have been 
changing it out to fit the season.
The shabby white/green board in front is my cabinet door, it fell off the hinge, actually 
the hinge ended up bending, I am constantly struggling to keep these cupboards door on these 
old cabinets, What we won't do to keep the beautiful vintage look right?

The story about all these little Italian Pottery pieces I have inherited is, that, they were brought 
to my mother and grandmother from my Great Uncle Bruno. When he came to this country from 
Italy, he stayed with my family for a while. I was 3 years old, so don't really remember. 

My Grammy gave me these pieces 
when I was 16 years old, 
(long time ago)

I can remember and see my mother 
having a cup of coffee from these dishes,
Oh, this was a lifetime ago!

I was given  this piece of vintage 
linen just a couple of years ago. 
Never noticed how much it resembles Italian pottery until I started putting all this together.

This teapot is not Italian. I found this just last week at Goodwill, cracked, chipped, rough,
however I fell in love with it. It is very old and English, hand painted in greens, and gold leaf, and the most charming design to me is the green Fluer de Les!!!

Vintage Hankies make my ice 
tongs into a towel holder!

Rummaged through the lace 
doily box and found these with a bit of aqua/green, 

Here is what the bottom of 
the sugar bowl says, I need to do 
some research on this,
Silicon China?  Verona design? 
Made in England? Ummmmm........

 I will switch out the vignette again, 
or now hope you enjoyed
my collection,
