July Pottery

On July 31, I saw some interesting pottery at the Westlake Goodwill. Since these pieces were blue, I had to get them:

This large oblong bowl looked and felt handmade . . .

. . . but it had no mark whatsoever on the back—except for the $2.95 price tag. It was a big bowl, so it was worth the price.

I loved the look of these two flowerpots. The other week I bought a gold version of the blue one ($1.95).

The blue flowered one (95¢) had Val Do Sol on the bottom. This is a pottery in Portugal.

But the one that called out to me was this green one ( (95¢) with a subtle blue design. I could tell it was handmade . . .

. . . and when I turned it over, I knew it was meant for me.
