Cottage Style Party #28

One of the things I love about a cottage 

is the little nooks.

Little nooks, not Nook.

Like this one on the end of old built in cabinets in my kitchen.

It was narrow, only 5" wide, and 

I just didn't know what to do with it.

So I left it empty until I found this collection 

of vintage cheese crocks.

To find them all together they must have been 

someone else's collection before they became mine.

Over time I found other little things to tuck in 

beside the crocks such as these charming 

French chef salt and pepper shakers 

and the pie bird above.

Being next to the only closet and bathroom, 

I pass by this several times a day.

It makes me smile!

And yet another collection was born...

Welcome to this weeks

Cottage Style Party!

It's nice to see I'm not the only one taking a tea break!

I love this Johnson Bros Friendly Village tea scene with the snow covered trees.

Stop by to see Sandi's blog Rose Chintz Cottage to see how she takes her tea.

And speaking of Friendly Village...I think I know who has it all!

Stop by Bev's blog Tablescapes by Bev to read her 

story about how she got so much of this beloved pattern!

This is the perfect cottage kitchen: bright, lots of stylish storage and bead board on the walls!

Stop by Deb's blog Vintage on a Dime to watch her 

transform her kitchen into this lovely sunny one!

Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Goodness - so many neat things. Great shelf, collection and additions. I think it's neat that you recognize the potential previous owner of those crocks. Kind of like a treasure in itself, isn't it?

  13. The cheese crocks are perfect for that spot - wonderful features - I do appreciate you hosting,

  14. I especially love the speckled crocks. A bit of cheese on some crackers would be perfect with a steaming cup of tea.

    Appreciate the time you dedicate to hosting this party!

  15. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful collection of crocks at Simple & Sweet Fridays. Have a great week!



Thank you!
