Well anyway, I also fell in love with the vintage bocce balls she had in a bowl on her living room coffee table. See the picture below for both the table lamp and the bowl of colorful balls pictured in Kitty's book.
Well a few days ago a blogging friend, Becky from Sweet Cottage Dreams showed some vintage croquet balls on her blog. I didn't realize it at first but she was selling them in her ETSY shop!
I thought they were very close to the bocce balls that Kitty Bartholomew had, so I bought them. They came today and I LOVE them! Now I am on the hunt for a few more including some blue ones. I have a larger vintage wood dough bowl that I can place them in when I get a larger collection.
Where do you find your inspiration?
