the pleasure of pottery

 I was content to wander in and out of quaint shops in the attractive town
of Grand Rapids, OH yesterday.
"Just looking,"  I responded cheerfully to the proprietors' offers to help.
Honestly, I don't need ANOTHER thing.
 Unique pieces of pottery always catch my eye.  Yesterday was no exception.
And though the prices there were fair, they were too high for my budget.
So imagine my pleasure to find two pieces at one of my favorite thrift stores this morning!
 For less than $1.00, I got BOTH of them.
 The colors on this "pocket" caught my eye immediately!
It's a heavy little piece with a charming copper hanger.
I couldn't resist it.

    1. Claudia, are YOU the Claudia that collects crocheted trivets? I have a feeling I may have sent some to the "wrong" Claudia!

    1. You're so kind to drop by. I am at a slowing down phase in my life and don't have nearly the excitement in it (or my posts) that YOU have in yours! ♥

    1. How I got you mixed up with Claudia "Bookie", I'm not sure. The bookmarks are beautiful. I'm using one of them right now. I posted about them on my other blog. Not sure if you saw it or not) Thanks for helping me straighten myself out!

  6. I was at a local thrift store last Friday and a lady and I got to talking about how God blesses us in unexpected ways when we find just that right thing at the thrift store. She called them "God winks". God winked at/on you, my Friend! Beautiful pieces. I love the leaf!

  8. I love that ceramic pocket! It's so unique and I like something different you don't find on the shelves at Walmart! I just returned from our neighborhood thrift store with an brown flowered English platter... $1.50. Going to clean my kitchen shelf now so I can display it! Thanks for stopping by my blog Rebecca.
