I actually have a few, and really don't need any more, but every time I see some, they still "call to me". Maybe because we eat a lot of pasta??
The other day coming back from the grocery store, I saw an estate sale sign and of course, I stopped.
Looking around what did I see? Pasta bowls!
There were four individual bowls and a large serving bowl, all shaped like big tomatoes.
On the bottom of the bowls was Pottery Barn and ... Garden Pasta.
I picked one up, looking for chips, or cracks.
They looked fine, so I asked the price. The lady at the table said "$7 ".
I asked for each? The lady said "no, for the set".
Don't you know how fast I whipped out my money before someone else saw them!
I felt a bit guilty ( just for a second), because the bowls were such a bargain, and the ladies were so nice. They even wrapped and boxed them for safe travel.
I think the little green leaf on the top is really cute.
Since green, white and red are the colors of the Italian flag, I used those colors in making this lunch tablescape.
The veggies, figs and herbs are from the garden, and my grandmother's old brown pitcher is holding a bunch of blooming Basil. Since it was blooming, I needed to cut it back, and use it as a "bouquet".
The small tumblers are for water or wine, and since the placemats are small, I used ceramic tiles for coasters.
My old stand by cabbage plate and dipping bowl are for bread and olive oil.
I didn't have the pasta ready when I took these photos, so I used dried pasta instead. Sorry, but some days I'm not all that organized.
Do you have a thing for pasta bowls?
Please don't tell me I'm the only one who's lovin' them. :)
I'll be partying with Susan@ Between Naps on the Porch for
See you there, and I'm so glad you stopped by.
