I had been keeping our bananas and Clementines in a smaller vintage bowl, and then I remembered that I had this pretty oblong pottery planter stashed away. Perfect!
I just thought the fruit with the yellow pottery had such a lovely, sculptural quality.
And it reminded me of my bowl of wooden fruit I found last fall at a thrift store:
Did you notice our lovely (ahem!) wallpaper behind the fruit in that second photo? Well I was so surprised when I actually found it pictured in a copy of Modern Bride magazine from 1968 that I picked up at an estate sale a couple of months ago!
1968 - yep, sounds about right. I guess that's about when my in-laws had it put up. Maybe we will win the lottery or something before another 43 years go by, and be able to remodel our kitchen!
