Adding to my Majolica collection


 I love majolica pottery and have many of the cabbage leaf pieces. I have plates and serving pieces in different shapes and sizes that I use quite often. While surfing ebay one night I came across this set of seven dessert size majolica fruit plates. I knew I had the perfect spot in my kitchen for them.
 I hung them over the slider in my breakfast area.
The back of our house is up high, the view is amazing!
 Love the way they filled in the empty space above the door.


 Spotted a few other pieces that I loved, but I was good and only ordered these for now ;)
 Today I spent my morning in the hospital with the hubby. He had surgery on his knee for a torn meniscus. He's home and doing well, he starts PT tomorrow for 6 weeks.
 Thanks so much for stopping by. Your visits and sweet comments make my day!
                          Have a super week!

Hi Martina,
I love your majolica pieces over the doors. Did I tell you that my sister has over 200 pieces of majolica! Yes she does. Some of it used to be mine until she talked me out of it. Anyway, she says she is going to sell it all some day. I doubt it. She has a huge cupboard full.

Love the view from your dining area.

Hope your hubs does well.

hugs
sissie

I'm not 'up' on different types of dishes but those are SO pretty -- great idea filling that space above the windows with them!

NanaDiana said...

Martina- That spot looks like it was designed for those plates. What a happy find!

Good luck to you hubby and hoping for a speedy recovery/rehab for him. xo diana

Miss Kitty said...

Hi Martina! Yes, those plates look like they were just "made" for that area above your sliding door. And such a lovely view that they frame. My husband had knee replacement surgery 3 months ago so we have been doing the PT trips too. It was a painful surgery/recovery but he is glad now that he did it. Hope your husband's recovery goes well too.

Gina said...

Wishing your hubby a speedy recovery!

What a great pop of color. Looks perfect over the sliding doors like that. I've always loved the artsy-ness of majolica!

Babs said...

Love those majolica plates and they are perfect above your door..just the right size and the colors are so yummy. Thanks for the inspiration.. I haven't looked on ebay for a while for majolica. I did get a Bordallo radish vase at an antique mall a couple of weeks ago, but haven't decided how to use it in a post yet.

My knee is having sympathy pangs for your hubby. It knows all too well about torn meniscus's.

Those plates are beautiful and look great over the slider. I love the pop of color they give to the space. Majolica has always been a favorite of mine. Have a great day.

Lorrie said...

Beautiful plates, and you found the perfect place to display them!

Carolyn@Sweet Chaos said...

Did you see Sherry Hart's post on the Atlanta Show Home? There was the prettiest display of vintage Majolica, and I've been obsessing over it ever since. Your collection is beautiful, and you found the perfect spot for it. Of course, your backyard view alone is stunning.

Hope your hubby is on the mend. I play tennis and sometimes have trouble with my knees. I'm scared I'm going to tear something :( Ouch!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Martina, my hubby had that same surgery a few years ago and got better very quickly. Speedy recovery hopefully for him, too. Sorry I missed this earlier.

Alison @ The Polohouse said...

Sending well wishes for your husband, Martina.
Your new book looks aMAZing. I would be drooling over those spreads too!

Hope the second day of PT goes well.
