Vintage Pot Love

Collecting vintage pots over the years has been so much fun.  They are easy to find in antique and thrift stores, affordable, and come in pretty colors and patterns.  A good portion of my collection is on display in my kitchen right now.

Green pots hold my dish soap and sponges.

These three decorate the corner by the television.  My mom’s friend, Peggy, gave me the pot in the back that belonged to her mother.  Wasn’t that sweet?

Green pots line the counters against the wall.

Yellow pots fill the display shelves at the ends of the cabinets.

The white pots are in my basement, waiting their turn to go on display.  I have only one blue pot, one orange, and no pink.  I’ll look for those colors this year to add to my collection!

    You have a wonderful collection of pots. And the green ones are so pretty in any season. Oh, clever idea with scarves as runners in the previous post! Linda

  4. I like how you have used the planters to hold your soap and whatever else. The planters do indeed make a lovely grouping.

    You have the best stuff! I love the green and how smart you are to put your soup containers in one. So cute sitting by your sink!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen an orange one. CUTE! I love orange!

  8. Paula, you do the BEST job of actually USING your antiques. Honestly, it’s always inspiring to me to see how you collect beautiful things and then make good use of them. Wish I could see your house in person!

    I’m guessing you’re back at work now–hope your Christmas break was wonderful. I’m finding it hard to get up in the mornings!

  9. Love your collection. Especially the yellow ones!

    I love old planters like that! Are some of them McCoy? They usually say on the bottom. Those can get pricey sometimes. Love you collection!
