A shelf or two on my kitchen sideboard to share with you.

Do you have a kitchen sideboard?
What does it say about you?
Are you a vintage collector or do you have a love of modern pieces.
This is what fills the shelves of my sideboard.
I think it tells you I am yes a collector and that the older the pieces are the better I like it.
Let me share the "bits and pieces" that have found their way into my home and onto this kitchen sideboard.

Depression glass and beehives a great colour combination and always look nice together.

Jugs.......gosh! can a girl like me have enough jugs I don't think so they are used for anything and everything and they are tucked in every cupboard in my home.

Another little collection of mine is Bakelite napkin rings with silver letters they are so! SO! beautiful and we use them when we have visitors for a meal.

My little pig egg cups are not old like the other pieces but my husband gave them to me about 15 years ago and I adore them. they are special.

Yellow at one end of a shelf looks nice with the cut glass pieces alongside the woods ware coffeepot, it is such a nice piece and we use it always too.......infact not a piece in my home no matter how vintage it is must be used so that it can be admired and loved each time it comes out.

Some of my great grandmothers plates in a lovely blue and white pattern called pheasants. the wooden napkin rings come from two dear friends in America they were his mothers and We always enjoy using them and share many stories about the friends when they are on our table.

More bees pots but I think some of you have seen this photo before sorry if it is boring seeing the same photos again. :o)

My sideboard it isn't in my kitchen at the moment but in my dinning room but as soon as the reno is finished it will take pride of place in our home that is for sure.

It is make from recycled timbers and redgum sleepers dressed and smoothed and the colours are lovely we have had it for about 22 years now.

I would love to see "A shelf" on your sideboard so how about sharing a picture or two.

This is my lovely quiet and restful Tuesday

You have so many wonderful vintage things! The beehives are so unusual and now you know I'll be looking for beehives and thinking of you each time I visit an antique store here!

I don't have a sideboard **sigh** but I look at them a lot. I am definitely a vintage collector. I have several things scattered all over. Definitely haphazzard in my display. Another very good reason for a big sideboard and a china cabinet.

You have such lovely things Lee-Ann. I do have a side board, but I call it my hutch. I have my teacup collection on the shelves, and my little salt cellars that I've collected. It's such fun to collect things like they. I'm always on the lookout for unusual ones.
Thank so much for visiting and for sharing your beautiful collection.

Lee-Ann, I am always so envious of your greenware. I see it often at the antique fairs around Castlemaine.

Instead of a sideboard I have one of those old marble-topped washstands, with tiles at the back, all intact! I only keep two things on it though, otherwise I'd have more to dust!

Lee-Ann thanks for sharing all your lovely things. I agree with you "the older the better". I treasure all my old things mostly because of the history of who's they were, or who gave it to me, or when I got it. Each and everyone has it's own history and story to tell.

What beautiful things you have. I don't have a sideboard, and I don't have many vintage things ... lots of pussy cat things though (how predictable !!).
Have a great week.
Take care, Meow
