Tole Obsession

 Having a private affair with Tole. 
Tole and Me. Me and Tole.
A few months ago it was ruffles...
I get on a kick and off I go...
This is the little sideboard table in the kitchen hall.
A new vintage tole tray took it's place above the window mirror.
 Love the round pizza pan shape, 
and of course the cream color background.
It shares the wall with some decoupage plates from Hobby Lobby.
 Just spreading the tole love around the kitchen! 
I realized I had a pair of tole lamps in apple green
 so I added one to the sideboard.
It has a bird on it, which I happen to love.
Some think birds are bad luck, but that hasn't been the case.
Pink and green and lots of creamy white~
and a little bird hooked rug.
I am a bird watcher so birds are cool in my house.
My tole story so far~
 and I don't think I'm done!
~PS If you are looking for some tole check out my Etsy shop!~

  15. You have a very pretty collection of tole. Although I like tole, I do not have any - yet. My mom has some tole trays I keep trying to talk her into giving to me!

  21. Oh...I love all the tole spread around the house. Very summery. I don't have a bit of tole...can you believe? Can't have everything! I love it so much in your house especially that large tray over the stove. That looks fantastic there.

  24. I've never heard that about birds being bad luck! I don't really believe in superstitions, but I love learning about them anyway. I have some black and gold tole planters I have to find now....I'd forgotten all about them

  25. Birds are only bad luck if they fly into your home (at least in the South). It means that someone in your family is about to die. On tole, I think it is very lucky *and pretty*

    Great collection!

  28. You have a great collection of these guys! I really like the white one with the curvy edges in the first photo, and the pink one over the stove. It's fun how each one has it's own personality.
