I definitely have strong leanings for the homespun and rustic style.
stoneware more than china
mason jars more than crystal vases
homespun textiles more than lace.
(My mother-in-law loves china and crystal…imagine her chagrin when for my wedding “china”
I chose stoneware dishes.)
I have a great affinity for, of all things, mixing bowls.
I have more heavy, stoneware mixing bowls than one woman with a wee, little kitchen should have.
When I saw this post on Sarah’s blog, a beach cottage, guess what caught my eye?…
the vintage mixing bowl.
Strange as I am, I actually researched what kind of mixing bowl this vintage lovely is and found out it’s by a company called Mason Cash…..and they are a bit pricey.
Imagine my even bigger surprise when it was only seven dollars!
It does have a chip…
but since I will use it more for display than cooking, I don’t mind.
Then, imagine my surprise to find these new stoneware lovelies in the clearance aisle of T.J. Maxx, just a few days ago.
Unfortunately there were only five of them.
I’m hoping I may find more of them one of these days.
Two months ago I’d never even heard the name, Mason Cash, and then to stumble onto
a vintage Mason Cash bowl and then some new Mason Cash plates in such a short time, and for such a low price…
well, I just think Jesus has the most creative ways to show me…
He knows me
He knows what I like
He knows what brings a smile to my face
He sees me
He loves me
and He’s not beyond placing a total unnecessary surprise in my path to remind me of these things.
(and you know He is head over heels crazy about you too, right?)
HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!
