52 Photos Observe The Curve


52 week badge

“In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves.” ~Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

This week our assignment is to focus on the curves that surround us in our daily life.

Searching around the house I found many beautiful curves.  I love antiques and it seems there is an abundance of curves in the antiques we have acquired.


An antique claw foot tub in our spare bathroom. We found it at a salvage place in Kansas City.  It's small, maybe just over four feet.  Our girls liked to take their baths here occasionally when they were little.


A footed pedestal on our antique oak kitchen table.


A sweet antique iron stone pitcher.


A lovely curvy sofa passed down from my husband's grandmother.

As always, thank you for stopping by.

Oh Alice! I would love to have a claw foot tub and that sofa! GORGEOUS curves!!!

Alicia said...

Oh, my, Alice - I love your antiques! Especially the tub - brings so many memories: my aunt (my mom's aunt, in fact) lived in an old house and the bathroom had a beautiful ceramic mosaic on the floor and a gorgeous claw foot enameled tub.
The whole set of pictures is wonderful - thanks for sharing!

What wonderful indoor curves! I'm starting to wish I had chosen some indoor ones too!

Tanya said...

Those are some gorgeous pieces! I have always loved claw feet. The apartment I was living in before I got married had a nice old claw foot tub. (I think it's the reason I moved in.)

Alice - what lovely curves you found this week! I especially like the pitcher. I have a small collection of vintage pitchers - they seem to say "hospitality."

Your photos are gorgeous but it looks like Spring is hiding somewhere behind those curves!

How beautiful is your post! The greatest luxury of my life was a beautiful rented home with an antique tub. Morning light, bubbles, renewal -- all was the most it could be, the finest ever in that fabulous tub!

Isn't it wonderful to see the craftsmanship of antiques. I mean, look at all the effort into the 'foot' part of these things...areas that are not even at eye level! :) My childhood home was full of these things and I loved to look at them and play around them...but of course the thought never entered my mind that they 'wouldn't always be there'.

Mama Zen said...

Gorgeous shots! I love that tub.

Patti Van said...

You definetly have some beautiful curves going on inside your home! I absolutely LOVE the tub!

Janet Bocciardi said...

If there is one thing I miss from my old house it is the claw foot bathtub. They are just designed for a bubble bath, candles and a good book.

Love seeing the natural curves from a time when everything was formed by hand.
