The Beach Cottage Jug
Tue 22nd, Jun, 2010
G’day my little cherry pies, how are you doing?
I am all good here, been dabbling all day with tradies for the next few things in the cottage to be renovated…first on the list I am telling you, though I feel sure you won’t be surprised is the 80′s sliding aluminium door on the deck….yeehaw..it’s on its way out…boy oh boy will there be a celebration in this here cottage and on this here blog when that old stinker hits the skip…
Anyway lets move on from tradies, though I do have to say I could quite enjoy men with tool belts parading around here a bit more often ya know…yep, we should move on swiftly to all things white and oldie..
Hmm I see a little odd pattern on here though since I moved to my own site…posts about vintage bottles, posts about yoghurt and here I give you a post all about a vintage-style jug or if you are not where I am from a pitcher.
I love these things, it is indeed my mission in life to spend most of the rest of it collecting pitchers or jugs or whatever it is we are calling them. I love ‘em, as simple as that.
This one is right up there in Beach Cottage Coastal style…a little bit vintagey but with a fresh air, a nice loopy handle, and as I always like a kinda utility feel to it.
I don’t need to tell you how I snatched this up, do I, when I spied this little beauty thinking it would be just perfect for something I am working on behind-the-scenes….and a great little home for a few wooden spoons in the kitchen…
Later on in the Sitting Room though I rather thought lavender might be a nice touch stuffed in it and I thought as I put it in how this is me all over really, and it reminded me of the colours on my website and the feel I was after…a bit beachy and country, a bit of muted colour and of course the oh-so-heavenly scent wafting around in the coastal air ;-)
I love lavender, I just think this small little bunch of eye candy makes a big impact…it really is right up my street you know…beautiful muted greenery, natures own ruffles, easily loaded into a jug…and all the while relaxing the senses…
I often pick a stack from the garden and will more often than not come back from the market with bunches of these to hang here and there. I have pots of them happily stacked on the back steps and incidentally, I must just point out here dear BCer’s that these are two-for one as once dried can use them to stuff into pretty little pouches to cover one’s eyes when one is feeling rather delicate.
So, I have a few of these for sale, but not many, I only have three edit* two left now, all sold thanks!…(but I may have a few smaller ones on the way…)
I loved them so much and thought you might too…(price is $US29 plus shipping size = 15x15cm)
That’s it for now, it’s over and out from Down Under…
Catch you later
