Old Bowls!!!!

Thursday, October 23, 2008

Well look at this gorgeous old ironstone bowl, isn't it amazing. I love all the discolouring and perfect little cracks in the surface that comes from age... I bought this pear a few weeks ago at Lily-G and doesn't it just suit it perfectly. Quote for this week.....

  1. I love that bowl! One of my favorite things to do is to scour thrift shops and antique shops for bowls with character! That bowl certainly fits!

  2. I agree, they were meant to be together.:)

  3. Cathy what a fabulous bowl.
    The pear and bowl are meant for each other. They are 'perfect'
    Have a great weekend

  4. I love your old bowls Cathy....the way that they suit your place and the way that you use them. If only they could tell their story....who used them and where they have been.
    The pear looks great with them especially on the beautiful blue, chippy-paint table....YUM!
    I know your place will be a busy little beehive this weekend. Don't forget to stop to catch your breath, love Angela.

  5. I have a fettish for white Ironstone, and I adore your little Pear. I wish I could visit Lily G so easily.
    Have a great Weekend Cathy,
