Lucky Day !!!

Today was my lucky day. My give~away win arrived from Sandi over at Olde Crow Primitives. It is the most wonderful little rug. It is delightfully out of round and the colors just make it look so old. Thank you so much Sandi :) I will treasure it always!
The flash brightened it too much.

At lunchtime today I passed a sign for a tag sale. The house sat on the shore of Lake Erie. What a gorgeous view from the back yard. Normally I find the prices rather high the first day of the sale that this particular tag sale organizer has. I found this wooden bowl without a price. Now, I need another bowl like I need to gain five pounds, but heh, I had to ask the price. $2.00 I was told. I'm guessing she didn't see my jaw drop :)
It does have its faults - a sloppily repaired crack and a little green paint on the inside.
I'm not sure what the heck happened here. It looks like someone sliced off a piece of the bowl, but when turned to the back, you can't see it, so this bowl has joined the many others I have sitting in the bottom of an antique cupboard. {{It's an obsession I have. I just can't help myself.}}
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Don't forget to sign up for my give~away on my previous post.
Sandi, thank you so much for my rug!!!
Pug hugs :)

So glad that this old wooden bowl has found a new home in your cupboard and made you happy for only $2.00. It must have a lot of history behind it. Congratulations on winning this little primitive mat give away, and giving it a prominent place in your home. JB

Love the bowl, Lauren! Most of mine are banged up too..but I love them just the same. They weren't made to be objects of decoration way back when...they were used and abused, I 'm sure! What a great price!! The little hooked rug is simplistic, but just lovely. I really am admiring the sampler you have on the back of your chair...beautiful!

That bowl was a great find! Maybe the slice was taken out so it could fit in someone's cupboard while the door was closed? Whatever the reason... I think that helps to make that bowl that much more fabulous! Enjoy!
