Vintage Ceramic Wall Pockets


I go in spurts with things – Craigslist, eBay, Etsy, they all take turns and when I’m into it, I’m buying more than one thing at a time. Do you ever go through phases like that?

I’ve been on the hunt for a cabbage plate or bowl. I don’t know why, I would totally make fun of myself in my earlier years for wanting one, but I want one. In the midst of looking for one on eBay, I found an orange wall pocket. I remember seeing them on one of my favorite interior design blogs here (no longer an active blog but worth browsing her incredible kitchen).

And well, you know my obsession with citrus. Hello blog logo.

I found this orange but I don’t know where to put it. I’m also convinced I need one more ceramic fruit wall pocket, because I don’t know why – that one blog has two.


What would you put in yours? I was thinking pens or something I need on hand. The only spot I can see to put it would be across from the horse hook that holds our towels. However, I don’t need pens in that spot. See my dilemma?

I remember how I was hesitant about drilling two large screws into my perfect wood shaker cabinets, asking my dad if it was a good idea.

He shrugged. “It’s your house, do what you want.” So I did.

So it’s my house, but I’m still not quite sure where I want this. ┬áSo for now, it sits on the concrete counter top waiting for a home. Rarely do I buy things without knowing exactly where they go (ok, maybe I do have a habit of that since the Craigslist cast iron benches I bought, oh and the new frame in my office) but I guess I fell in love with it first before thinking this through. I’ll let you know where it goes!
