Bowled Over

At a Church sale a couple of weeks ago (screechy kids in tow), I came across a lovely teal bowl I just had to share with you...

I nearly didn't even bother picking it up, it was low down on a shelf and from above just looked like a triangular bowl, but I loved the colour and had a closer look...



It has sections cut out of it and really is stunning, it looks completely different from every angle...

...and it's big, big enough to use as a fruit bowl perhaps?

The best bit - it cost 50 cents, ridiculous!!!

I'm off now to count down the hours till my wonderful Dad arrives from Ireland tomorrow, we're all very excited!!!

Hi Alice, I have just found your blog via the wonderful Thriftcore.
Your fifty cent "fruit bowl" is absolutely beautiful...lucky you!
I'm going to follow you from now on and am off to explore some more of your thrifted treasure.
