NEW CHINA, NEW BOOK SHELF, AND THE WAY WE LIKE TO LIVE

 
 
For several weeks we have been searching for some new bowls on our Saturday morning outings.
 Some of our soup bowls have broken and we found ourselves constantly frustrated without
 the same amount of dishes as we were use to. I'm happy to say that last Saturday we finally found
some new bowls we really really liked.

Our new English China bowls
 
Our every day dishes are mostly second hand finds that we fall in love with.
We have 6 of this and 4 of that and we prefer it that way.
We once bought a box of country yellow mugs with matching salad plates and for good measure 
two additional plates with the same pattern but in green.
 
 
 We have also found some unusually shaped pieces, including this ginkgo plate and cabbage bowl.
 
 
But most of all we like purchasing fun patterned pieces that we have learned
not to be afraid of and to enjoy using them every day.
 
 
We ended up paying $2 each at a yard sale for our new bowls,
we simple couldn't resist the pink thistle design.

The weather here in BC has been great for yard sales and for painting furniture
