Show and Tell Friday is hosted by the very talented Kelli at There is No Place Like Home
In my second post for this blog, on September 25, 2007, I wrote about my use of pineapple motif items in my home. The pineapple is a symbol of hospitality. Years ago in New England a pineapple was prominently posted outside the home when the ship’s captain returned from a voyage. Friends then knew that visitors were expected and welcome.
Then in November 2008 I wrote about a large watercolor painting I’d gotten for just fifty cents.
Today I’d just like to share three of my pineapple items. First is a 12-inch tall green ceramic container, hand made in Portugal by Deartis.
I’ve embellished it with a white bow, which contrasts with the sculpted green surface.
The last item is in the dining room. It is a large 23-inch tall ceramic piece which I found at Marshall’s several years ago.
The pineapple is set in a large urn and reminds me of a topiary.
I hope that each of these pieces enhance the décor and add to the sense of welcome here at Oak Rise Cottage.
