This is our front door these days...a salute to the Summer that Memorial Day rings in and Labor Day, all too soon, bids a fond farewell.
We are awaiting some bad weather from the tropics so I took advantage of the overcast skies to snap a few pics of the summery blues popping up around our home. It is difficult to photograph sometimes because of the reflections...the ever present sunshine bounces off anything with a bit of shine to it.
Like the crocks I lined the bookcase with for a lighter look.
I have been collecting "canner" crocks for some time. I am always thrilled to find a different motif or size and try not to repeat patterns. Love the feather on this one.
squiggles & clovers
Crocks with advertising appeal to me for the graphics and also the place of origin...this one is from West Virginia.
This is my latest find...an Alexandria, Virginia crock. Having been born in this wonderful old historic town I have looked for one of these crocks for a long time. They are pricey...but I found one that was reasonable and took the plunge.
It's a fun addition to the group. I need to do some research and learn more about this particular pottery...made right there in a town that holds so many memories for me.
Just a few snaps of some of the summertime blues around our house.
Enjoy the day,
