First of all, a shout-out to Melissa for identifying my thrift-store find as an authentic vintage piece of pottery. Woo! I think I’m going to grow some tulip or narcissus bulbs in this baby. Wouldn’t that be lovely and springy? Looking at it again, it made me realize how much other turquoise/aqua stuff I’ve been drawn to just recently. (No, this isn’t an underhanded ploy to try to sound really hip. Okay, maybe it is.)
The color, polish, shape, everything are beautiful.
I feel so lucky to have it.
Mostly because it reminds me of her. (She was so classy.)
(I pretty much only buy pieces bigger than 1/2 yards when they’re on clearance.)
so I was very excited to find blues!
Their shape, their size. And their price.
$2.99 each at IKEA!And look, there’s mugs and other dishes too.
So pretty and so cheap!
I saw some other really cute melamine bowls at Target last Saturday. And a great price again. I couldn’t find a picture of them online (they were with the seasonal Easter stuff) but I did find this good looking set. Also, this vintage looking stoneware set, the exact same color as my thrift store find. (I couldn’t link directly to the exact dishes – just the general category.)
So turquoise (aqua) stuff available for everyone! For pretty cheap prices too. I’m amazed at how just little bits of that color go a long way. Anyone else have some good finds to share?
