here's the funny thing
Grampa, my Mum and I were thrift storing a bit ago. Mum was down one aisle. Grampa was checking out some stuff and I was cruising through the 'collectibles.' It was the strangest thing. It was like I was on auto pilot. My hand swooped over and picked up the bowl that I have been hoping to find for maybe 10 years! Are you kidding me??? There it was a vintage Johnson Brothers Greydawn vegetable serving bowl. I gleefully told Mum and Grampa that I have the lid at home for the bowl and have had the lid for at least 10 years. Crazy I know. Who buys a lid? I just love the colour of this pattern so much and have some of the pieces, so years ago I found just a lid and I bought it. I have packed it around through many moves and there it was... the bowl that needed my lid. A perfect fit. The perfect lid. Grampa thought it was pretty funny. I think he was surprised that I found the lid in the cupboard right away when we got home. And here they are together. Happy as can be!
And I am going to link this up to Sophie's flea market finds. : ) check out other flea market treasures!
