Shabby Chic Stoneware Pitcher

Yesterday, I featured a white stoneware pitcher as the centerpiece in my Elegant White and Gold Tablescape.

IMG_7241BBThe pitcher was a salvaged item that my hairdresser was throwing out years ago. Obviously, I grabbed it and it has been patiently waiting its turn for its closeup.

This was the inspiration for my shabby chic pitcher centerpiece.


I saw this embellished pitcher sitting on the sale rack at Home Goods. Please forgive the poor photography — I took the photo with my cell phone, but I knew the concept had promise. It was lonely there on the shelf, looking as though it belonged in Great Expectations with Miss Havisham…

… and I thought I could do something similar but not quite so sad for my Elegant White and Gold tablescape.

I looked at cotton lace remnants and other options at Jo-Ann’s Fabrics, but finally settled on the gold filigree wired ribbon which complemented the embroidery in my placemats nicely. Then, while standing in the checkout line, I saw the cute glittered rose pins in the $1 bin and I knew I had my look. Not quite as shabby, but much more chic. 🙂

IMG_7231BInspiration comes from the strangest places sometimes. I’ve learned to trust my instincts and go with it.

Have a lovely weekend — I have to go run my snowblower now!

    • As it turned out, my lovely neighbor did my driveway before I even got outside, but then I was shamed into going out and shoveling the parts he could not reach with the snowblower. I was very thankful for his help — we have some really great neighbors!
