I probably should stop collecting things. Or should I keep going? I still can’t decide. Something I have started collecting lately is antique stoneware crocks. They keep popping up in my life wherever I go & I just love them in all different shapes & sizes. I’m not picky about what they are or how much they are worth, to me they are just really lovely & fit in our home so well. I created a simple little centerpiece in our dining room this week with some of my crocks & I wanted to show you this simple idea that you could create with crocks, or any containers [or planters] that are similar that fit your home style. Here is that little happy centerpiece on our dining room table & how it looked today…
The crocks are all finds of mine, but you can find them online if you search & your grandma might have some in her basement. Just ask around if you want some. The antique dough bowl was a find at a local furniture store here in Michigan [Art Van] but I have also seen some dough bowls at Target & other retail stores. You can also find antique ones at local thrift/antique stores. The table runner & light fixture are from World Market, Pillows are from H&M. Chairs are from Scout & Nimble, Buffet is a DIY [here], Wine rack & large metal planter are from Home Goods, Wine glasses are from Marshalls, & everything else are finds of mine.
I love how every crock is unique with it’s different markings, colors, sizes, & the way it’s worn down. The obsession is real folks. I have a few larger ones that I have some plans for & I even had some in yesterday’s blog post [here] of my bookshelf makeover. I have a feeling you will see these babies all over our little cottage house soon. Hope you like them as much as I do!
So much pretty stoneware. I’m hoping I’m not the only obsessed with these crocks, or this blog post was just solely for me, but that’s ok too. What do you guys think of my simple crock centerpiece? I mean, greenery. Can’t go wrong with greenery! The plant on the far right is real [ground cover from Lowes] & the rest of the plants are faux. Fake it until you make it, or get a green thumb!
