Country Crocks / Farmhouse

I have been missing my old country crocks that I wanted to start collecting when I was about 22 years old and they were always so pricey I couldn't afford them back  even in late 1976. By the time the 1980's rolled around I got a couple.Then 1990's I bought every one under $50 I think. Anyway I got them out of the studio pie safe and brought them upstairs to the kitchen for me to look at them again.
They would be perfect in today's farmhouse kitchens
                                       
 I just removed everything I had setting up on this old dish cabinet and started setting them in no certain arrangement
 I only kept 3 of my yellow ware crocks when I had an auction years ago. Also kept my old Blue Butter crock
 I set this bucket of dried rose buds in a crock but don't like it there now so it will go back on top of refrigerator
 Of course I had to leave my little country staffordshire dogs
 Still love my blue country crocks I like the grape pattern on this large jug and milk glass shaker


 I am glad I kept them many anyway

By the way I found a new magazine by the name Country Cottage? why had I never seen it before. Anyway there is an article about a girl who has collected these brass horse harness crest and medallions that I recently bought at an estate sale. Have you seen the magazine ? it's nice


Linky parties I like

  5. I love that beautiful color of blue, especially the butter crock. I have an old brown bowl but I don't think I've ever seen the blue. Hugs, Diane

  6. I have a large yellow ware bowl with the little girl watering. I need that jadeite as my daughter collects it and I buy it when I can find it reasonably priced. My favorite is the Johnson Bros? blue and white floral ware as in your pure lard picture.

  7. I know just how you feel about those things that we had our "eyes," on in our youth and waited until we were older and had the extra cash to purchase them. I am so glad that you were able to have your pretty blue crock collection ( I do adore blue) they are lovely and so nicely displayed too!

  8. Great collection, so wonderful you kept them! I have my Mom's and Grandmother's blue and brown bowls and a blue pitcher that was my Grandmothers. That is the extent of my collection. Never heard of the magazine? Will have to watch for it!

  12. Curtains in My Tree,
    Gorgeous collection of blue crocks and yellow ware, dear one!
    I began a collection of yellow ware for our daughter~in~law a few years ago! Like you, she wasn't too sure about enlarging her collection when she was out Antique Shopping. I've managed to add a piece for birthdays and Christmas. Her collection is a nice assortment at the present time.
    Yes! I glanced through the new Country Cottage!
    Happy Fourth of July!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  14. Love your collection! I don't have any collections of real value, and would like to get rid of the stuff I have...except some of my Betty Boops.

  15. Oh, I love your crock collection! I have seen them in some of my friends homes and love them, but don't have any of my own. Recently there was a large bowl at an estate sale for $100. Because I have so many dishes I resisted. Thanks for sharing them with SYC. Oh, and I love Country Cottage magazine. Have only seen a couple issues.
    hugs,
