Tureens and Travel

This week's fabulous finds are from two different scouting outings. Keeping up with my collection of fruit-embossed dishes, I picked up this great gravy boat and plate at the local Value Village. I already have an official gravy boat that matches my good china, but I came across this one while I was in post-pedicure bliss browsing with a dear friend, and couldn't resist. (I'm sure it will be handy for those 40-person buffet dinners we're always hosting.)

The darling little tureen was discovered in a second-hand store in my hometown. I travelled there last weekend and my mom, aunt and I spent part of a lovely June afternoon poking through shelves and riffling through boxes. In a spurt of familial generosity, I decided to treat and our bill was a whopping $10.25. We all came away happy, with little treasures tucked in our bags. I'm not too certain exactly what I will use the tureen is a bit small for soup. Perhaps it will be perfect for sauce. I'm thinking something from Julia Child. Sauce Duxelles anyone?


  1. Yeah! Happy Sunday. Love your posts on Fabulous finds, if only because it justifies my growing collection of while milkglass! Thank you.
