I came across this pretty little handpainted lidded jar in a thrift shop, and thought it would be a very pretty gift filled with lavender. The colors are so muted, but gorgeous. There is a soft brown and a pale greyish mauve......I found this little flower in the garden and thought the colors went beautifully with the jar and was especially simple and pretty with white ironstone. It has little "puffs" of pale mauve, grey and cream with little lacy edges.
The old door knob came from my kitchen island project. I think the worn smooth old metal is gorgeous, and I find it interesting enough to leave around as an ornament. My husband stumbled upon me while I was photographing it. "Isn't it beautiful?" I said. His reply...."Chania, it's a door knob"
