It is with bowls.
Colored pottery bowls. Although I would not turn down glass bowls either. But these 'speak' to me. Just a minute, I have to get rid of the people at the front door from the insane asylum.
It is very, very hard for me to pass them up in sales, thrift stores, etc. And, much harder for me to sell them in my space or at shows.
I love them big and I love them small. And, I have more that I didn't show...
I love the durability, the stories they can tell of the meals they helped to prepare for large and small families, the craftsmanship in their making.
They make my heart sing. I know, crazy...
I think maybe this is too much obsession with an object...But, there isn't one or all of them I wouldn't part with if it meant less heartache for one of my family. If it could take away the pain for a little while... I would throw them out if it could heal rifts that should not be.
Do you have objects or things that 'speak' to you?
I do, another day I will share my pitchers, and creamers.
