Welcoming Spring With an Antique Crockery Pitcher

Hi Friends, I'm excited today to be joining in with a group that will be starting a new bimonthly Themed Hop. Thank you Cindy from County Road 407, for creating this fun gathering for all of us that are lovers of farmhouse and vintage decor. If you came from visiting CoCo at The Crowned Goat, welcome, I'm so glad that you came by. This month we're sharing our ideas for using crockery in our decor and vignettes.

I don't have a large collection of crockery, actually just a few small pieces that seem to always be somewhere in a cupboard shelf or vignette. Since it's time to start Easter decor I thought I'd share an antique crockery salt-glazed pitcher that was my paternal grandmother's. I don't use a lot of blue, but this is the perfect time to bring it out since the yellow of the Forsythia is a perfect bright and Spring-y compliment.

This is the only information I could find about this old pitcher from checking Ebay: "English sculpted Scratch Blue Cobalt white, salt glazed earthenware, potted from ca. 1860-1920. This is a wonderful English milk pitcher, with a deep and rich Cobalt Scratch Blue Windmill scene."

At the time I took these photos, my Forsythia bushes were just showing buds, so I used some of my faux stems. But now my bushes are coming out like gang-busters so I'll have some photos with the real thing soon.

I have this vintage crate tray on top of my farm table in the Garden Room. This table is such a fun place to decorate because you can see it from the Kitchen and Hearth Room. It's also not used much, so I can layer items to my heart's content with multiple seasonal elements.

My big Bunny Boy has hopped over to check out the pitcher, 
along with a nest and a small potted plant.

The raised sculpted windmill design is also on the back side of the pitcher.

I'm not quite sure what the exact name of this plant is, 
but I think it's some variety of "Baby Tears".

We have the Linky list below, so we hope you'll continue the Hop and visit Emily from Le Cultivateur and her beautiful crockery vignette. Thanks so much for coming by! Happy Spring!

Thanks so much to our hostess Cindy,

  1. Debra,

    Beautiful as always! How great to have a spot you don't have to move pieces and can layer.

    Your pitcher is very pretty!

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  2. This is a beautiful vignette, Debra! The pitcher is gorgeous...and that it belonged to your grandmother is so special! This is all so perfect for spring! It's been fun to join you on the hop!

  3. The pitcher is so pretty Debra. Love the whole vignette. Love when you can put family pieces into our decor. Makes it more special. Happy Weekend.

  4. The pitcher is a fantastic find and looks so pretty filled with forsythia. The whole vignette is so sweet, I love the little plant too. Everytime I see your painted soda crate it reminds me to be on the lookout for an old crate that needs new life.
    I can't wait to see your real forsythia branches...we have made it to spring my friend!

  5. Such a beautiful post Debra🌷🙋🏼‍♀️

  6. Debra,
    I l o v e unique finds. . .so this crockery pitcher is making my heart skip a beat!
    Was at a Vintage Market Days yesterday and so~o~o disappointed as many of the vendors
    not only didn't have vintage. . .they had tons of commercial for purchase!
    Spring is beginning to arrive on my side of the Prairie, as well!
    After last Mays heavy rains, I was afraid I had lost my boxwoods. . .
    but they are coming back strong . . .and green!
    Keep the inspirational posts coming!

  7. This is so beautiful Debra! I love the way you have everything styled and those branches are gorgeous. I've never seens a crockery pitcher like this but it is gorgeous. I can definitely see that it's such a treasure. So excited to be celebrating Spring with you! Hugs and happy weekend, CoCo

  8. The blue, yellow and white go together so perfectly!


  9. I love the blue with the yellow. That bunny is a darling. What a special crock from your grandmother.

  10. Beautifully styled vignette! The blue crockery pops even more with the forsythia. Visiting from All About Home.

  11. That blue and white pitcher is so pretty and looks like spring with the yellow flowers! Lovely vintage vignette!

  12. Debra, your grandmother's beautiful crock is perfect for spring and Mr. Bunny looks like he is enjoying being there with it!! When I started adding photos for this week's Share Your Style #249, I didn't realize all of you were together on one blog hop (lol!). Guess crocks were the feature of the week! Happy to have featured yours. <3
