A Favorite Thing 03.02.13

I forgot that the last time I was here at my Mom's I found some things thrifting, but didn't take home yet...so this greeted me
I love this pink pottery vase
The soft pink color was hard to photograph but it reminds me a ballet slipper
Graceful curves...it is marked 
USA 680
**I saw this listed on ebay as a Shawnee vase**


This girl will be going home with me to join my other pink pottery!

Joining Claudia for

I'll be back tomorrow for
Gratitude Sunday

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

Vases are something I have so few of. I love this little pale pink ceramic one. Now you have me thinking about thrifting.
