speaking of soup…Posted: November 9, 2010
i picked up this soup tureen last week sometime.
or maybe it’s just a gigantic sugar bowl.
who needs a soup tureen when you just eat soup from the saucepan standing over the stove, you ask?
no, i’m not that pathetic (yet), but i DID start to do just that last week and made myself stop. that is just wrong – to eat dinner standing up over the stove. it’s much better eating dinner in front of the computer. sitting down. refined-like.
anyway – it’s from salem china, but i couldn’t find the name of the pattern. i like the sailing town graphics. i like a sailing town. yes, that’s probably me you’ve seen loitering down around those sailing town docks.
sure, it’s got some crazing, but no chips, no cracks.
i like the houses. or buildings. whatever they are. i like ’em. i don’t foresee ever using the bowl, but it looks good sitting on a shelf.
we had SNOW! it’s gone now, but that ain’t funny, man. as a matter of fact, it reached darn near 60° today. talk about your mood swings, ma nature.
