It seems whenever I stop at the thrift store, I often pick up several similar items and I immediately have a new collection. Whether it's wood bowls, vintage needlework or celluloid brooches, I tend to find things in multiples. Here are my latest finds...vintage ceramic vessels (for lack of a better word). These pieces were definitely made to hold something specific...a candle, a few stems of flowers...I'm not entirely sure. I'm also not sure why I was drawn to these...probably the thirty-nine cent price tag more than anything.
These made me smile, and made me feel a bit nostalgic for my childhood. All are carved with "norma '74" on the bottom. They may one day hold a tiny succulent-who knows.
