Falling Leaves Art Deco English Biscuit Jar
Is this seasonal or what??? We are having our first big wind storm of the fall here on the Olympic peninsula in Washington state with high wind warnings. The leaves are flying and the branches are appearing more every moment. It made me think about this biscuit jar from England.
The biscuit jar or biscuit barrel was made in the 1930s and is a great art deco stylized leaf design with chrome plated fittings. It is so cool! Every home needs somewhere for their biscuits or cookies and this is a stylish way to store them. The colors go so well with todays colors, as well...nice earth tones.

I love to watch the clouds scudding across the skies. Being here within 2 1/2 miles of the coast reminds me of how the clouds fly by in England where we go each year on a buying trip. Because it's an island, weather changes there quickly as well.
Have a great day and hope we don't get blown away!
