I found this sweet little pot at Scott's Antique Market this morning and I just couldn't resist it. The seller said it was probably from the 1940's to 50's and was made in Zanesville, Ohio, home of many pottery companies.
I don't usually buy things in this color, but then I remembered this is the new color I'm redoing my living room in and it would match the upholstery fabric I bought. It didn't take a lot of talking to myself to convince me to buy it since it was half-off, but truly, it was the hollyhock design on the sides that drew me in.
It found a place on my mantel next to some vintage books and my mantel clock.
I think it looks right at home on the mantel, like it's always lived here.
At the other end of my mantel lives this rusty iron horse. He looks so tired and asleep on his feet, just like I feel most of the time. At least I don't have as many age spots as he does.
