Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend !
Today I want to share a new find, I am so excited to tell you about it I can hardly contain myself. It is
probably one of my favorite finds ever!! I love rustic handmade pottery, and I was over the moon when I found this large antique French pottery bowl a couple of weeks ago. There are no cracks or repairs, just a tiny chip at the tip of the bowl. It doesn't have to be perfect, I like it when I can see it has been used and loved. The inside is glazed and the measurements are 12 x 36 cm, the color is typically from the region of Provence. And I was told that it dates from the late 1800`s. I have been looking for the perfect salad/baking/fruit bowl for a long time, but either the color was wrong or it was too expensive.
Normally I would pay more than 2000 NOK (approximately 270 Euro), but payed less than half. So I think it was a good bargain as well ! Used commonly in French farm homes, picture : A charming cottage home furnished with a mix of pieces that have been in the family for decades, light painted walls, wooden beams, a mix of antique homespuns, monogrammed Linens, large kitchen table... Well, I just swoon every time I look at it :)
I also love these 100% Linen fabric Sardinia kitchen towels from Libeco Home. They come in two colors, Olive and Terracotta. I think both looks gorgeous and could not choose either one of them. They would fit well with my new bowl, don`t you think ?
At last, I want to thank all you lovely people for stopping by, and also for leaving me such wonderful comments. I smile when I read them, your positive feedback is of enormous value. You are so special to me for so many reasons. I will soon arrange a give- away as a little appreciation. I think you will like it.
Have a Good start to the week !
