pieces that are missing it's companion sugar bowl, creamer, or the all important lid to that particular piece.
Pieces that are still so pretty and still wonderful to enjoy
They have sat for years on a shelf or in a dusty box in junk stores and sales,
until I find them........and bring them home to my
Such is the story on this piece. It is a very vintage 1920;s creamer, missing it's companion sugar bowl.
Hand painted, made in Japan. I have researched and have only found one antique pitcher with the same design.
One side has this house by a lake with boats sailing,
the other side has a quaint farm scene, which captured my heart.
The only flaw is tiny chip in the upper rim by the spout.
I decided to try to find another life for this pretty piece
and added a blue scouring pad.
I then drew off a design to match the farm scene and stitched it in different shades of blue
onto a soft cotton dish towel.
I then crocheted a dish cloth is blue and white
and crocheted both dish cloth and towel in a dark blue edging.
Now the little creamer belongs to a set that is perfect for a
quaint and vintage touch for the kitchen.......don' t you think?
I am hoping someone will buy it and take it home to use once again.
I also did the same to this little hen salt , pepper, and napkin holder.
Someone made it in ceramics in 1987......that is what it shows on the bottom.
Since she was painted in blue and has blue flowers on her,
I found this cute hen design with flowers and embroidered her in blue on 4 vintage napkins.
Now this is also a cute set ready to be used once again!
So tell me, do you like to re purpose things?
Old pieces of china, old chairs, or old tools perhaps?
I would love to hear!
