On a recent trip to the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay I found this beautiful big blue and white bowl in a local antique shop!  I knew it belonged in my kitchen… specifically, on my kitchen table! It was love at first sight.
But, to bring it home… the beautiful bowl had to not only have a love relationship with me… but the price had to be right!  Oh, I wanted this bowl to be “THE FIND”! 
 I turned the bowl over to see the price tag and…

The bowl had my name on it!!!!!  Not really, but it should have because it was a very, very, did I say very?… good price. 
This blue and white beauty is in perfect condition. The inside of the bowl is GORGEOUS! (I’ll post picture of the inside when I plant the geraniums outside!)
 It adds just the right pop of color to my neutral kitchen!
Don’t you love coming across “THE FIND”!

    Can’t beat the blue and white combination, certainly one of my favorites. Priced right makes it a perfect purchase.

    I love it too. I also love poking around in old dust bin shops filled to the ceiling with “stuff.” We have a huge shop like this near us in the countryside, the older woman who owns the building (which is beautiful) has so much “stuff” she doesn’t know what she has. It’s wonderful. And, that bowl deserves to be at home in your kitchen.

    This is a perfect FIMD, indeed! I caught a glimpse of the interior of the bowl…Oh~h~h! The height and heft make it such a great piece for the table…or kitchen island! I’d say…”It had your name on it, for sure”! Glad you were able to give it a home @ StoneGable!

    I love your new bowl and I think it found you. It’s as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside. My grandson and I made cup and saucer bird feeders today with your tutorial. Thank you.

    Oh my- That is one beautiful bowl! Is it ironstone? Were there any marking on the bottom? I have never seen one like that. It’s perfect for your table. Enjoy!
