I love colors around my life, they can brighten a sad gray day. They make me smile.
I was in my favorite thrift store without any luck, but suddenly I saw this beauty. A Talavera chest from My Beautiful Mexico and it was only 1.99 dlls..!!! I know Talavera is very expensive here in the US and in the border, I really would like more pieces, but for now I am very happy with my treasure.
I found this bowl at one of the Salvation Army Stores, it is actually a set of 3 bowls, but they seem very fragile to prepare food on them, so I used them as planters, just cover the bottom of the pot with plastic to avoid stains, I paid 5.99 dlls. for the set and that little tree cost only 99 cents at the clearance rack at Lowe's, it was a very sad tree, but now it is beautiful.
This cookie jar was found in my favorite thrift store, it's from Italy, used for some sort of pastry, I love the colors, I believed it was around 3 to 5 dlls.
