Ok, so I was looking around at my house the other day …
… and started looking at my vintage crocks.
They are scattered throughout and some are functional, some are decorative.
I then started thinking about adding a few more but only if I could make them functional.
Like a big one to set on the mudroom bench for umbrellas…
…or Joey’s baseball bats…
…or Joey’s walking sticks…
…or Joey’s BB gun…
Hmm…maybe I should just get Joey one for his room.
Anyway, I headed to Pinterest to see if I could get any inspiration and came across this idea to use a crock in the kitchen to hold dirty towels.
Of course this idea would come from one of my favorites – Sarah Richardson.
They can be used as planters of course, but why not step it up a notch with a water garden…

I like the idea of creating a berry branch “orchard” in the winter…

Vintage rolling pins are fun to collect and this is a great way to display them…
Finally, here are some of my crocks and how I use them in my home:
I used to keep kitchen utensils in this but I now use it for things like these dried florals.
These large 10 and 6 gallon crocks are perfect for our hazelnuts and Scout’s dog food.
Of course, you can’t “serve” out of vintage crocks with anything but vintage scoops!
Hmmm…no, the utensil holders are not vintage, but the little salt and oil crocks you see are.
The brown crock is an unusual color and I keep it tucked away until fall rolls around and then it gets filled up with pine cones.
You may recognize the trio – they are displayed on one of my floating shelves in my great room.
So, any other ideas? I’m sure I can find some extra space here and there to add to my collection.
What would you use them for?
