The forsythia aren’t real, but don’t tell anyone. I like how they look in my rock vase ( transported carefully from Idaho and created by the Heisels).
That copper bowl is a “whale blubber” bowl. The fixtures aren’t original, but the bowl itself was used by a cook on a whaling vessel. Some of the blubber was melted for cooking. Years ago, when Ebay was very new and filled with antiques and bargains, I was able to buy some interesting whaling memorabilia. I was researching my Nantucket ancestors at the time and the history–though gory and cruel– was fascinating.
My other whaling treasures are tucked inside of a safety deposit box now, but I do love looking at the blubber bowl.
And the forsythia.
Because Spring is coming!
Happy Easter, everyone!
