This is Friday so it must be Show & Tell over at Kelli's House!
If you would like to see what everyone is "Showing & Telling" about, head on over to her place!
You will never guess where I got this beautiful bowl and pitcher! Here is the story but you must promise to still like me after you find out! :~}
One day while unloading garbage at the refuse transfer station (a much more pleasant term than 'garbage dump'), my husband came to the door of our pick-up truck. (I always ride along to write the check, but never get out. Yuk!) He asked me if I would like an old pitcher he spotted just sitting there. I am always on the look out for useful 'free' items and asked if he could bring it for me to look at. A moment later he returned with a greasy, dusty yellowed bowl and pitcher. The bowl had a 4 inch broken off section that was lying in the bottom of it. We think someone was cleaning out an old kitchen where it may have been displayed above the cupboards hence all the thick grease and dust.
We took them home and bathed them in hot soapy water and disinfected them with vinegar and hydrogen peroxide. I glued the piece back onto the bowl and now have a lovely set. You would not know these were the same pieces. I think they made up for the $9.00 we paid for depositing out trash!
What do you think?
