Each Tuesday Misi, of Gable House Musings, chooses a theme and invites bloggers to play along with her "Tuesday Display Chain". This week we are showing off "bowls".
I am a collector of bowls...big bowls, little bowls...bowls made of pottery, pewter, wood, china, glass...I love them all. These are a few of my favorites...
~This tiny yellowware bowl was a garage sale find...just .25 cents. Isn't that great? OK, so here's the not so great part...see the spice box it's sitting on? Also a garage sale find...it was $10 and had the original finish-including stenciled drawer fronts. I thought it was ugly, and not that old...so I gave it a prim finish. Can you say young and stupid? Saw one just like it (before condition) in an antique shop for $150. *sigh* OK, moving on...~
~More garage sale bowls. Are you sensing a theme? My entire house is decorated in early garage sale.~
~I found this set of nesting yellowware bowls at the thrift store, four of them for $20. The two largest ones are pictured here on my $1 corner thingy. I think it might actually be a plant stand, but it works for me.~
~Red hutch full of primitive goodness~
~You guessed it...garage sale. Hutch, $50. Loading it into a minivan by myself, priceless.~
~Rowe pottery bunny, and a piece from my Dad's baby dishes, surround a wooden bowl filled with gourd eggs.~
~A redware bowl from Turtlecreek Pottery, a favorite gift from my Mother in love.~
~Wooden bowls rest on a dry sink.~
~A HUGE yellowware bowl from my grandmother. It measures 14" in diameter and makes a fabulous punch bowl.~
~An old trencher takes center stage in the buttery. The woman I bought it from said it was hand carved by her great-grandfather. I know...how could she sell it?~
~Vintage Pyrex, colorful and fun. And no, this photo isn't staged. I bake outdoors all the time.~
Not my style, but still...one of the prettiest bowls I've seen.
It seems to me that one can never have too many bowls.
