Pretty Pitchers

I am a collector.

Fornasetti, McCoy Pottery, Shoes, Cloisonne

and Pitchers.

I can’t seem to get enough.

 I love them and have them stored and also displayed throughout my house.

I love pitchers over flowing with flowers.

I love this table scape.

I think this is my favorite pitcher of all time.

I bought it at a great antique store in Bloomington, Illinois and hand carried it back to Los Angeles.  It has found a forever home with me.

I also love Mexican Handcrafted Pitchers.

Beautiful craftsmanship and beyond gorgeous.

I am coveting this pitcher by Salvador Teran

I need to start saving!

I have wanted these pitchers ever since spying one at my friend Alexis’s house.

The lapis parrots are to die for.

Yet another Mexican Pitcher I am eyeing.

My collecting began over 20 years ago when I bought the all familiar Italian Rooster Pitcher.

The famous Italian Ceramic Italian Rooster Pitcher symbolizes “Good Fortune” and/or “Good Luck” and is believed to protect one from dangers.   It is an Italian tradition to give a ceramic Italian rooster pitcher to a friend or relative, ideally as a housewarming or wedding gift.

Anthropologie always has a selection of great pitchers.

 I always wait for their sales and have managed to score some at great prices.

The Crate & Barrel Ona Pitcher is staple in a lot of homes.  It’s modern lines makes it the perfect dinner party water pitcher.

I have four at home.  When I am hosting a large dinner I can put one on every table.  And the $26 price point makes it not only good-looking but affordable.

Whether the pitcher is useful, pretty,necessary, extravagant, or practical, I will always have room for another.

What do you collect? Do tell.
