Pottering about...

Whilst out on a solo covert Santa shopping mission at Toys 'R' Us yesteray I took the opportunity to pop into Vinnie's on the way home and have a quick look...

I came across these 3 pieces of earthenware in different parts of the shop and think they look really nice together.

I love the angular handle and subdued green of this jug - $3.

This nice little bowl (should really have given a clean before photographing it) - $2.


And this lovely little grey lidded pot - $2.

On the subject of the Santa shopping mission, I am now armed with numerous catalogues and a dozen ideas - trampoline/inflatable family-sized paddling pool/bikes - decisions, decisions... and lots of fun :-)

Thanks for stopping by French Kissed and leaving a comment. So nice to discover your blog and all of the great treasures you are collecting. I agree that the 3 earthenware pieces look wonderful together. I especially like the aqua pitcher. I will be watching to see what you do with your new tray. Have a great Sunday!

These are lovely!

BTW I'm not sure where you live, but I was in Vinnies in Lane Cove (Longueville Rd) yesterday, and there are three pyrex bowls with lids that have your name written on them! Hope you're in time if you're keen!
