First up: McCoy Pottery, specifically, this green vase. This is a more recent acquisition – I love the lines of the piece and the little leaves at the top of each handle. This vase lives on top of my white cupboard in the living room, along with 2 other green vases and a green jardiniere.
Since it is Spring and Easter is coming, I thought I’d share some of the egg cups from my collection. Most of my egg cups are what are called figural egg cups. I am entranced by the whimsical figures on each of them – they take me back to my childhood.
This is one of the seven dwarfs – Doc. These egg cups were issued in 1939 and are very collectable. I only have one but would love to collect all of them, including Snow White. They come up for auction occasionally on eBay and are pretty expensive.
I’ll be sharing some more of my egg cups in the next few weeks.
The stage with a traditional red velvet curtain. I have logged thousands and thousands of hours in theaters since I began to act at the age of 12. For many years I was an actress, earned my MFA in Acting, acted professionally and eventually became a teacher and coach of actors. I have my home here at Mockingbird Hill Cottage and then there is my other home – the inside of a theater.
Have a wonderful Monday.
