There are some things in life that we just have to overlook,
however the obvious is sometimes difficult to ignore. Can you ignore the not-so-perfect? Take for example the crack in this old pottery bowl. Would you pass it up for a dollar? Or would you take it home with you and find a cozy niche for it to call home. I think the imperfect is perfect. Hey, kind of like us. We all have our little imperfections – but that is what makes us all unique. Like these two vintage bowls. If you can overlook the cracks, pits and crazing in the glaze you can see that they are so sweet with pretty pastel stripes. They are quite useful, too,
as they hold these wonderful eggs that my dear friend Barbara (hey, Barbara…that is YOU!) gave to me. Barbara lives in the country (lucky lady!) and has a lot of chickens that run around her yard. These sweet chicks provide an abundance of fresh eggs for Barbara and her hubby. She was so sweet and shared some of her eggs with me. Aren’t they gorgeous? I love the soft green and brown colors. Barbara taught me something that I thought I’d pass along (you may already know this – but I sure didn’t). To check to see if eggs are rotten, just place the eggs in a sink and cover them in cold water. If an egg rises to the top, then it is rotten. We don’t want any rotten eggs, now do we? That is one imperfect thing that just cannot be overlooked!
I had only one floater…
…and the rest were PERFECT for my IMPERFECT bowls!
Hey Barbara……care to fill these up, too?
…..insert a smile here….
Just kiddin’...thank you for the eggs and for your friendship!
