Faux in the Know

Who would have guessed that I collect Faux Fruit and Veggies—anyone who knows me that’s who. These meticulously done little gems are the work of two different Artists. The lettuce and radish are by porcelain artist Pamela Tidwell of Vieuxtemps Porcelains. They were purchased at Scott’s Antique Market in Atlanta, Georgia. The remainder of the lovelies are ceramic and done by Canadian Artist Eva Gordon. This collection is displayed on an antique patissere table in my dining room–but they would be just as happy in a living room, kitchen or on a hall table. Where could you use these lovelies?

Grouping the Collection Gives them Importance

    I’ve got a wonderful asparagus plate by Eva Gordon—a gift from friends for my birthday. People try to pick up the porcelain asparagus along with the real spears! Love the collection!
