Like every other Memorial Day Weekend we hit the garage sales and we found some truly phenomenal finds. I have to admit that I’ve been keeping these treasures to myself, but promise to share them with you as I clean, display, fix and/or paint them.
My first new treasure is a fabulous porcelain bowl in blue and white. The cobalt blue design against the white porcelain is what first caught my attention. I knew immediately that the unique shape and beautiful color would look perfect on our dining room table. The second thing that caught my attention was the $2.00 price tag! That’s right this beautiful bowl in perfect condition was priced at only two bucks – SOLD! What an easy decision that was to make.
I wanted a very soft tone for the display so dug through my shell collections to find white, off-white, natural and sandy hues. Since the bowl is so deep I filled the bottom with some extra rocks I had and then topped them with mainly oyster shells, clams, murex and five finger starfish. The seashells filled this enormous bowl perfectly. If I ever have a big beach cottage party this would be perfect for serving a huge fruit salad but for now it is “the” perfect seashell bowl…I love it!
