That's my new sugar bowl!

Look what I found this morning!   I know many of you also subscribe to Country Living Magazine and have enjoyed the February edition because I've seen you posting about it.


For those of you who don't know this issue's cover is entitled, " The Simple Beauty of White".  Inside there are many articles about decorating with whites and neutrals, etc.

This morning I decided to skim through it again and check out the displays of all the pretty white dish collections.   When all of a sudden on this page look what I spotted, right there on page 97.

OMG! There it is!

Look right there in front of the clock.  See that sugar bowl?
That's my new sugar bowl!

See!  It's the same one! I recognized it because of the little bow thing on the top.
Isn't that funny!

 

I still don't have a clue about if this is porcelin, or ironstone, and mine still isn't in as good of shape as I would have liked.  But, at the price I told you about last night of $2.00 for the set and then seeing this right here looking so cute in the magazine I feel much better about mine now!

LOL!  Don't you just love when that happens?
Just sharing!

  5. You did good, Mary:-). A little wear just gives a piece more character. I remember when I saw my colorful breakfast room chairs, used in a movie. I was over the moon!LOL

    Happy Weekend!

  9. No wonder I liked it! No really it has a sweet shape and if it's good enough for County Living...well it's good enough for me. Great find and you have the creamer also!

  10. How fun to have discovered a look-alike in a nt'l magazine! It is a very cute little set and it was a fantastic price, too. You mentioned it looked a little gray in a previous post. Is it just crazed? Or is it entirely showing gray? Regardless, it must look lovely wherever you have it displayed. Thanks so much for visiting today. I'm off today to try and find some pretties for the first time this year. :-)
