New finds

I like this simple little lamp, got a new shade for it though (from Target)

I had one of these blue mason jars, now I have 4.  These are more pretty in reality, they are all slightly different tones of blue and will be nice to store things or just on their own.

These bowls were marked "fiesta bowls from oatmeal boxes".  But after doing a little google research I found this.  They are "Carnival" dishes, and were made in the 1940s and 50s.  They were only $1.50 each.

In the last couple of months I started collecting a few of the fiestaware pieces.  I like the turquoise and the old ivory colors, so the bowls above do match perfectly even though they don't have the "fiesta" mark.
