What's It Wednesday #97
First I was in a pickle...then I was in a jam. Let me start from the beginning. Being a Victoriana (Collector of things from the Victorian period 1837-1901), I have a long list of things I am always on the hunt for. Finding the perfect pickle castor was top priority.
I love the silver frames (silver is a weakness of mine). The frames are usually quite ornate with lacy filigree, scrolls, shells, flowers, tassels, birds, etc. On the side of the frame is a little hook for the tongs to rest. The glass jar insert is equally as ornate and add a lovely elegance to any tablescape.
Once I placed the pickle castor on the table I realized I was in a jam. I did not actually want to put pickles in my pickle castor. We were having croissants, fresh fruit and sparkling apple cider for breakfast. Then it hit me. Jam!!!! So I placed orange marmalade in the beautiful glass. It completed the fall colors of the table.
Once breakfast was over I put fall candy in the pickle castor for the kids. In an instant I was no longer in a pickle but enjoyed being in a jam. This Victorian pickle castor, from the mid 1800s with orange marmalade or fall candy, is now my favorite fall accent.
What is your favorite fall accent this year?
