Thank you, eBay.

These wanted to come and live in my house. They felt they would be happy here.

Love the way you worded this - just how I would put it when explaining my hoarding behaviour to my husband. And they are positively lovely things :)

Marian said...

You love queensday in Holland so much isn' t it?

Well, you should see how Basel is looking right now.Google EK Holland and see, the whole city is packed with dutch people wearing orange. You' ll love it!

Janet said...

No, they are just stopping by to see you, then they are coming to my house. ;)

Jess said...

Janet, they lied to you. You can't trust them. Sorry to burst your bubble, but they assured me just now they're staying here. But they also said they might have some friends out there somewhere who might come to stay at your house. You have to keep your eyes open for them. :)

Jess said...

Thrift stores and eBay and etsy!

My mom and I have been looking at your blog for over an hour straight! These are gorgeous and I'm so jealous that you can find such great stuff on ebay! All I find is junk "/ Haha.

Love your tutorials and everything else on your site! Keep it up :)

Nancy Ward said...

Woo,,,can see why you felt they needed to reside with you!

BTW...I posted an entry to your way back May 30. Hope that was OK (if not, please let me know).

Jess said...

Good luck! I'm sure you'll give some fortunate pottery a very loving home.

Lovely. And I'd love to see the painting/hanging that shows on the background. Gorgeous!

Nevis said...

Cool!

Jon said...

OMG i have the same vase but in blue! they could be cousins!

Karen said...

Very nice! Those will go perfectly in your home -- based on the pics you've shown on your blog that is :)

Jess said...

Jon, your blue vase is GORGEOUS. That blue is so beautiful! I wonder if there are any other cousins out there in different colors? And hey, I saw your home tour on design sponge. That's you, right? Holy cow. So awesome. I want to live in your house.

Jess— Pretty sure this is West Germany pottery (guessing value at $50-75). An educated guess, but pretty sure. Nice catch.

Jess said...

Yeah, it is. The $15 and $9.99 I paid on eBay sound pretty good, in that case.

tara.k foto said...

beautiful! do you have any tips you could share to help ebay neophytes find similar goodies?

Jess said...

Hmm, search for "studio pottery" or Bay W. Germany, maybe.
