Thanks to everyone for their awesomely supportive comments yesterday. The bowl wasn’t the whole story:
A gorgeous, but small-ish, vase for $5.00 from an estate sale. You caught a peek of it on the mantle here.
A sweet little pink striped Pyrex bowl. I have a feeling Mom might be stealing this one.
Another cast iron votive holder. This one marked Japan. Alright, I need to open an Etsy shop. Soon.
More vintage melamine for a play kitchen (this isn’t Melmac, though).
I am planning a pretty long research trip abroad (details soon) and I thought this vintage sewing kit would be perfect. Actual scissors? Needles made in English? Snaps? Gosh, people sure were spoiled. This will be much handier than the cheap-o hotel version I have.
