Cafe au Lait Bowls

This is one of those items that I have kept an eye out for during my shopping adventures.  I don't think I had ever really looked at an original cafe au lait bowl.  

These bowls are not in the best condition, one has a chip and the other one has some staining.  I must say they are still pretty gorgeous.  

They both have the Digoin France stamp on the bottom. 

I am definitely going to be on the look out for one of these in a color closer to my house's color pallet. For now these pretties will help to inspire me.

When it all comes together

I have my favorite thrift store here in France that I visit once a week when I can.  I usually come home with a random variety of things.  I love it when I got through my new finds and I realize that I can put together a fun look with things I have collected over the last year.

These pink cups and saucers are Arcoroc, made in France.  They are so dainty and pretty.  The hand stitched cloth has great colors and is in really good condition. The pink, blue and brown combination is not something I would usually pick up, but it was fun and it really wanted to come home with me.  

The brown and pink egg tray makes me want to put together some deviled eggs and pour some tea.   

Now to look for a coordinating tea pot.  It is always good to have a goal.
