I'm working on my next article for Spaces so I have been making the rounds. A few things of note at Mission Road Antique Mall. This boot scraper for one was plucking at my heart strings. Functional, just the right patina, but I passed.
Terrific. I mostly love them grouped like this, but have been keeping my eye out particularly for "4"s. Still, did not bite.
Oh my heavens, but the most wonderful cream ware with a tortoise glaze. Way outside my price range for anything other than, say, a car, but really terrific.
But. But I did find another enameled bowl. The blue teardrop to the left is new. She seems to be fitting in quite nicely. I was afraid the rosy one would be stand-offish, but he has welcomed her to the mix graciously. They actually seem to have a lot in common. The small turquoise bowl is always friendly and was never a worry.
