When Joan and I went to the thrift store looking for a few clothing items, we also found some ceramic pieces. My mother made ceramics for years - even had her own kiln - and I still have a few dishes she made. When I saw this pair of brightly painted fish I thought, "Someone made these for a child's room or a bathroom, I'll bet!" I pointed them out to Joan, who labeled them "creepy," but later picked them up and said she'd like them for her room.
This bowl caught my eye because of the lovely turquoise color, and I was pleased to see that it also was a ceramics piece. It will hold sewing items in my sewing corner.
Steve loves to make gravies and sauces and I knew he'd use this American Limoges gravy boat if I got it for him.
We spent $5.50 total on the non-clothing items, but I need to send the girls back for clothes soon because they all need a few summer dresses and shorts.
