January 15, 2012 -- my new stuff

I bought this little pitcher at River Town Antiques in Scottsville yesterday. Love it, and I bet I'll use it over and over. Today it has yellow violas and some buttercup foliage in it.

At Rivertown Antiques (which, to my delight, has really inexpensive bric-a-brac as well as antiques), I also bought four yellow ramequin dishes, a long low, chartreuse vase, and a yellow pitcher. Couldn't resist putting them all in the windowsill together, because they look so pretty together.

In the top of the stack of ramequins, I put a beautifully curled old oak leaf, and in the long, low chartreuse container are some plum tomatoes (from the grocery store) and a clutch of pine needles left over from my December 31 arrangement.

These colors remind me of the 1960s, and because all that is coming back, they seem really contemporary now.
