A half-hour stop at a well-stocked Goodwill turned a rainy afternoon into a fun excursion.
My eye usually picks the pearls out of a sea of shells. Maybe this artistic ability to find great items is due to reading eight million decorating magazines over the course of a lifetime. ha!
Scanning a hodgepodge of household artifacts, three plates, all HausenWare and made in China, jumped into my line of vision.
On one, there's a fat white sheep, with the words "un moution" written across the blue rim. (Perhaps it's French?) Sheepy Pie rests against a light green background.
A large Navy blue fish with lime green and polka dot fins graces another plate. Small goldfish swim nearby on a deep teale backghound set off by a lavender and turquoise rim!
On the last of that trio of plates is a chubby black and white cow with "un vache" written along the blue rim.
They're titled "Birds and the Bees" by Sango and are designed by Sue Lipkin. Guess where these were made? Ahhem. China.
Want to know the amount spent for all the loot on the rainy afternoon? A whopping $8.49!
