Taylor Smith and Taylor Weather Vane

A few days ago I mentioned boxes I hadn`t opened for more than a year. Most of the items are vintage American dinnerware. A favorite of mine is TS&T Weather Vane, part of the Ever Yours Line. I like the sleek lines of Ever Yours.

Isn`t that Rooster Weather Vane cute? If I had room this would be something else I collect. I like a country style home and Mr. Rooster would fit right in. I put it in my Etsy store this morning. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet, so to speak. Some things you have to let go. Most of my dressers and closets are crammed with linens, aprons, glass and dinnerware. My husband knows that when I see a dresser at a yard sale I am buying it for storage. My TV stand is a five drawer dresser full of linens. I am very fond of hand work like lace and embroidery so I usually hang on to those things. I always feel a connection to the women who embroidered and made lovely lace. Aprons are very special too.

Time to bake bread. So happy for bread machines. I have a carpel tunnel problem that makes kneading difficult. My husband had to drag me kicking and screaming to that bread machine. After all, real women KNEADED bread! Well, now I wouldn`t be without it.

Have a blessed Sunday,



  1. Real women knead, I love that! Love the china too!

  2. "real" bread! That's one of my favorite things to do when it's snowy outside!! (make AND eat bread!!)
    This collection of dinnerware is cute - love the color on the inside of this piece - shows it off more!

  3. Mmmm...I love my bread machine too. I could live on fresh baked bread and butter!
    I love the look of that TS&T line too...cute rooster!
