Has it lived a Prior Life?

I ran over to Lezlee's a little while ago,
and found out she is having a party!

Uh huh, a
And we're all invited.

Lezlee's livin' up to her name and asking people to share
objects that they use that once had a "prior life",
or was used for something different than what it is now.

The first thing that came to mind was my sweet little
 Staffordshire Commode.

Now, I have to admit that it IS at home in the bathroom.
But now used for extra t-p and soap.

I"ll refrain from any blatant bathroom humor,
except to say,
 it DOES have a large crack on it's bottom.

Now, go visit Lezlee and see what you have to share
that might have had a Prior Life!

If you haven't seen my post on "Tattered Treasures"
a new store in Lebanon, Missouri,
please scroll down to the next post.

Have a great weekend,


  1. Oooooh! I love it! How perfect to store extra TP and other bathroom necessities in!

  2. Now that is such a clever way to use your chamber pot. It's adorable. Hugs, Marty

  3. LOVE the cracked chamber pot! And it looks like we have the same taste in bathroom wall color! Thanks so much for joining my party... I'm new at this and it means a lot! Lezlee

  4. LOL! I have a couple enamelware ones with lids sitting next to the potty. They hold extra T-p, too.

    Love your little chamber pot!


  5. I love it!!! Mom tells a story of my grandmother going to a dinner where they used one to serve soup!!YUCK! Anyway I have to laugh when I see them. What a great way to decorate your bath!
    Hugs, Lisa

  6. Beautiful pot and your potty humor made me giggle!!

  7. ... never enough tp ... we're always yelling from behind closed doors here!

  8. You are funny, and what a 'prior life' this little pot had!

  9. I Love it Debra, it looks great in the bathroom.........I like how you can take something so beautiful from a past life purpose and use it in a new charmming. XO MARY

  10. You are too funny Debra, but love how you use it! So pretty, too!

  11. Hey Debra
    Great way to use such a pretty pot. This sounds like a fun blog.
    Have a great evening

  12. LOVE your Staffordshire chamber pot, Debra--crack and all! I'm sure it's much happier in it's present life....I'm just sayin'!

  13. Hi Debra,
    That is one pretty little chamber pot. I love how you are using it.


  14. Love the commode, looks fabulous. It has a way better life now..LOL..
    Thanks for visiting earlier.

  15. Debra, you crack me up! Really, though, for a chamber pot, that is (number one) mighty pretty and (number two) cleverly used! Couldn't resist carrying on with your theme! ~ Angela

  16. Several years ago a friend of mine and I were having a yard sale together, and I noticed she had a blue enamelware chamber pot for sale. I asked "Why are you selling it?", her response "Well, nobody pees in it!". I bought it. LOL! Rhonda

  17. And with age the crack only gets bigger! Darling little chamber pot and girl...I love Yardley anything.

  18. Ooh, Debra! I'm crying here after reading your crack about the crack on the bottom of the bowl! :)
    It is a pretty thing that once had a dirty job! So glad you've cleaned her up and your using her to hold things now! ;)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  19. I love the fact that you are still using this piece in the bathroom. I don't think it matters how much a piece is washed and sanitized, but no one wants to use a former chamber pot as a fruit bowl, right? :) TP and soap is very fitting.

  20. I love the little porcelain potty-
    I have a couple of enamel ones...(one is child sized) I used the big one in the bathroom to store TP for a while-- was thinking of reincorporating it.
    Yours is so dainty - great post, crack and all.

    found you at Prior Lives

  21. Very pretty! Crack and all. And it looks just too cute with all of your goodies. Do they still make Yardley products? I remember them from a looong time ago!

  22. I can't believe that something that pretty used to be used for you-know-what!

    It would make a really pretty soup tureen, but I guess no amount of washing would ever make that a palatable idea!

  23. Funny! I bought one of these one time that said "soup tureen" on the price tag. Luckily, I knew what it was! There are some beautiful ones out there. By the way, I love the print behind it in the first photo.

  24. Now THAT is one more beautiful commode! I so love the way it looks so casually elegant! Your style is wonderful!

  25. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not going to get punny with this - but you know my mind's in the toilet, right? LOLOLOL

    Debra - BEAUTIFUL!!! Who knew TP could be so gorgeous?!!?

    :-D xoxo

  26. Hahaha, you are funny. I have a couple of those chamber pots with the pretty roses too. Thank you for the birthday wishes, sorry no cake left. I finished it for breakfast today, but my husband did make a strawberry rhubarb and blue berry rhubarb pie yesterday. Oh they are soo good. Have a wonderful day.

  27. Debra, this is so beautiful!! Hard to believe what it USED to be! I think she is much happier now!!
