You’ve heard the saying go big or go home, right?  Well, take this big one home!

Large Famille Rose Jardinaire Fish Bowl Planter

This big beauty is 18″ tall and 21″ in diameter at the top.  It is beautifully painted inside.

It is in excellent condition.

I am unsure of the age of the piece.  There is a marking on the bottom.

This would be a beautiful jardiniere for a large indoor tree or plant.  What better way to bring some green into your home?  Especially this time of year!  Here is some inspiration:

I have a few new finds to share with you today, starting with this adorable Foo Dog Small Pitcher/Creamer.

Blue & White Foo Dog Pitcher Creamer

Blue & White Foo Dog Pitcher Front

How cute is he?!  He measures about 7″ tall.  He doesn’t have a lid.  He has no chips or cracks.  And look at this cute tail!

If you wanted to go all out blue and white, you could serve your milk in the Foo Pitcher, and your coffee in these Churchill Blue Willow Mugs.  They are a bit taller than your average coffee cup, measuring at 4.25″.

And why not sip your coffee while dreaming of swashbuckling Johnny Depp/Orlando Bloom piratey-guys?  (Did I say that aloud?)

Ship Painting 1959

This cute little painting is dated 1950 and signed by M. Von or Yon.  Re-framed, this would look terrific on a wall, or on a styled bookshelf, etc.  It measures 11 3/4″ x 9″ (not including frame).

Which one is your favorite?  I’m kind of in love with the pitcher — I think it’s so unique!

All of today’s finds can be found in the Pursuing Vintage Shop!

I found these beautiful lamps this weekend.  I was so excited that I had a pair!

Asian Melon Jar Lamps

Aren’t they pretty?  I love the pink in them.  (I think they look great in front of my favorite Kerry Steele painting!).  They measure about 14.5″ to the socket and are about 8″ in diameter.  Both lamps are in working order.  They were made in Macau.  They are available in the Pursuing Vintage Shop.

Here are some ideas for how to use them:

Use one on top of a dresser.  (How fun is that green dresser?)

Greige Design

Use the pair on a sideboard or long dresser.

In the living room!

Colorful shade choice is interesting and fresh.
