Just Right!

My bear family needed to have a nice meal together....they decided to meet on the chaise and use the good dishes....monogrammed no less!













I am posting these sweet little bowls for Blue Monday. You know there has to be a story. 20 plus years ago when my children were soooo young, I had a friend, Sam, that we would go to all the country stores and dream. I saw these little bowls in a store in Plymouth Michigan and I wanted them so bad. But they were around $25.00 at the time. I could not take food from my babies mouths, so they were left for someone else. Fast forward to 2010 and across the country. My friend Candy and I have a resale shop we love to stop at. I was browsing through all the goodies, when I know I let out a gasp. There was this little set, perfect. How much I asked the clerk. $15.00. SOLD! I wasn't waiting another 20 some years.
Now I don't know about you, well, maybe some of you I do, but these are squealing material for sure for me!!

Happy Monday!

Yes, indeed, Ceekay! Squealing material for sure! Those are the cutest, and I don't blame you a bit for getting them. And look how happy those little bear faces are with those new bowls. They obviously approve!

Ceekay, those little bowls were meant for you!! If it had not been that particular store, they would have found their way to you somehow. I am so glad you found them. How cute are those bears of yours!!

Hi..
I had to smile at this story. I did that with a set of Blue Willow china childrens dishes from my childhood. One day I found the set I had once owned...but it was close to a hundred dollars so I passed on them..and when I came home and told my precious second husband, Frank, he sent me straight back to the store to get them. Bless his heart. Thanks to him they are now in my curio cabinet in the living room. I think of him everytime I look at them..
I'm glad you made the purchase.
VERY glad!

Your little blue bowls are adorable. My daughter used to love playing at Goldilocks and The Three Bears although our bowls were not as pretty!
Happy Blue Monday.

Cute post. Love the bears and their adorable bowls. When I lived in Michigan, Plymouth was my favorite place for shopping. They had the cutest country stores back in the day. I'm sure I visited the shop you saw these in many times. How neat that you found them all these years later and at such a good price too. Squealing material ~ definitely :-).
