I have been adding to a collection of white pitchers for years. I’ve carefully packed them up at each residence I left and took them to the new one.
I opened each box with a bit of trepidation, worrying one might of gotten broken. So far, so good.
I can’t recall where I got them all. But some stand out in my mind.
My Target Pitcher:
The tall one in the middle I recall finding at Target years ago. It was $14.99. I don’t know why that particular figure stuck in my mind, but somehow it did.
I think someone was kind enough to send me the one with the raised vines and birds on it.
Maybe it was one of you. It’s certainly one of my favorites if I had to choose!
The one at the far right end was the last pitcher I purchased. I found it at Tuesday Morning before the ankle surgery in June 2022.
I don’t recall where I found the big one in the middle with the lines going vertically down it.
It was one I got years ago, so my memory is shady. The same goes with the others in the above photo.
My Canton, Texas White Pitcher:
The one at the far left was one I found at a shop in Canton, Texas. I believe the shop was called Laurie Anna’s Vintage Home.
She is on Instagram, but I can’t tell if she still has a brick and mortar shop, or even an online store any longer.
I loved going there. She had the most wonderful vintage and cottage style finds.
I was just in heaven walking through her store, finding one treasure right after another. There was another white pitcher I found there that got broken somewhere along the line.
After all, that was probably 12-13 years ago.
My Estate Sale White Pitcher:
The tall one with the lid I found right after I moved to Tulsa. Kendra and I were at an estate sale and there it was. Of course I zoned right in on it.
Kendra doe not frequent estate and garage sales, I don’t think. So that may have been one of the few she went to. And certainly it was the only one she went to with me.
I seem to remember that we were both flailing a bit in term of finances. We had talked about opening an online shop with vintage finds.
If my memory serves me correctly, she could tell how much I loved it. She told me that that white pitcher was not for me to keep, because we were selling it.
I knew in my heart that it would be hard to part with it. But that was an argument for another day.
And obviously I kept it!
I’ve tried my hardest not to break that white pitcher with the lid, because the two of us at an estate sale is a lovely memory for me.
I seldom see her nowadays because she is always busy. The same goes with Kasi. I miss them. And I can’t go out to see or meet them anywhere.
Kendra refinished a few pieces of furniture back then and sold them. She was quite good at it.
But then real estate started making her a lot more money. And flipping houses makes even more money than selling houses.
So that’s where she is today. Selling houses and flipping them. I think one of the ones she’s currently working on may be an Airbnb.
The Reflection In The Mirror:
I immediately noticed that the reflection in the mirror looks like frost. I’m thinking maybe it is the light and the popcorn ceiling.
So I’ve shown you my second and last collection. My first was the vintage jars and bottles I had in this same spot on the mantel.
What do you like to collect? And please share with us why it is dear to your heart.
