Pictures of your collections

oakleyokFebruary 8, 2011

After reading Karen's topic about what we collect, it seems most of us do collect!

So, I'd like everyone to take a picture and show us. Even if we've seen the picutre a hundred times already, it's always fun to see them again.

This is just one of my collections, Watt Pottery.

My first piece came from my late grandmother who was deceased before I was born. I've decorated my house around it since I was in my 20s. I gave it to my DIL to pass on to my granddaughter.

Here are some of the many old bottles that I didn't purposefully collect but found most of them buried in our yard, and some from my dad.

Love your Watt Pottery, and the colors are perfect to decorate a home around, and as for the bottles--who wouldn't have saved those beauties??? You also seem to have a knack for displaying them in a creative way. TFS

Jeanne, looking at your Jewel reminded me that I have five nice pieces, but only two are displayed in different areas.

I received a soup tureen from my late MIL last week, it's really nice.

Great collection you have.

Oak, its so neat your Watt pottery has a family history and is being passed on. I think that is wonderful. I like the old bottles too.

Jeanne I've long admired your collections as you know.

I'll take a photo short cut by posting link to my Photobucket collection album. It has quite a bit of my dogs, rabbits, Christmas, and some of my horses. Plus my small collection of Otagiri birds. I think it was Punk who recently found a mama bird with babies that I recognized at Otagiri. With mine, and my cardinals which I forgot to take photos of, I don't collect the birds with babies. Not sure why, maybe trying to limit my collecting.
LOL. I also collect figurines of small bird pairs. I only have about 10 I think. And "fat" birds, LOL. Have a dozen of those. I should photograph them and add to the album too. As you can see, I have too darn many collections....but I can see I'm in very good company here!! ;o)

hugs, Karen

Thanks Punk, n Jeanne. Those green and white rabbit plates are the only two I have, but they come in a whole set of dishes. Including pitcher, cake plate, etc. But too costly for me. So I settled for these two plates since the design was different on them. Oh, the set also comes in brown and white. I saw them in one of the gift catalogs that come in the mail. I might break down someday and get the pitcher to decorate with.

Oak, thanks for starting this thread. I hope we see a lot collection photos from the others. So interesting!

hugs, Karen

The bunny dishes are J Willfred Toile (in brown or green). And there are square plates
as well as the round. Plus a cute tea set featuring baby bunnies. There's also a set
with birds instead of bunnies. I love this stuff. Its amazing I have just the two plates. LOL.

hugs, Karen
