Remember how it feels when you first move into a new house and you can hardly wait to put your own stamp of personality on the space? It’s been awhile since I’ve moved but I still enjoy the process of making this house a home, even after living here for six years! Decorating a house with what you love adds those unique layers that turn it into an inviting home, so it’s no wonder I enjoy the process!
Remodeling and big room makeovers can be rewarding, but there’s something nice about taking your time and simply adding a few personal touches here and there. I’ve always loved just puttering around the house, trying things in new places, refreshing or styling small shelves, tables or mantels, hanging things up on the wall or adding to and displaying special mementoes or collections. My favorite collections are ones that are of classic elements such as original art, pottery and other timeless pieces. I love adding to a collection over time, it’s a fun hobby!
One of my newest collections is of Polish Pottery. I came across these three pie plates and a mug from TJ Maxx a few months ago. I loved the vibrant color and pattern! While I will say that collecting “things” doesn’t really buy happiness, collecting things that have meaning or even just light up a corner of a home can definitely bring a little extra joy to every day life.
Polish pottery can be tricky to find, but here is a round up of some great online finds below in case you’re interested in starting a Polish Pottery collection of your own!
