I have a thing for white dishes. I have a thing for natural and nautical. So when I spied a particular piece in Pottery Barn, I couldnt help but want it. It was this one, a clam shell serving bowl :
I wanted it so bad, but I didnt want to spend the $39 that it cost. No, $39 isn't a fortune, but at a time when 2 of my children need $7,000 in braces....a little is alot. (When the orthodontist told me that I did ask for oxygen!!!) I couldn't make the shell serving piece convincing in my mind, so I let it slide. However, Luck was on my side. I was in the thrift store earlier this week and came across this clam shell serving bowl:
The cost, $6.88. Not bad.
I haven't used it to serve anything from yet. And I can promise you whatever I may serve will be braces friendly.
I through some shells in it to show you, but I know it's going to be great!
And in case you want one too...and dont come across one in your thrift store. It's currently on sale.
Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.
While I was checking out that clam shell serving bowl, I also spied some great outdoor tablescape pieces for tablescaping. I LOVE the zinc serving pieces!
HUGS! Hope to see you tomorrow, but not before you leave some "roadmap" love!
