~Pink pottery... and a few linens...

I bought this because it reminded me of my vintage spoon rest. It is a cute pottery piece that I am calling a bowl.  A really heavy bowl. That I use to hold my car keys in...
It has the look and feel of McCoy. But I am not sure who made it.
When I saw it... it reminded me of this little beauty that lives on my stove.

I like how they are very similar to each other. The spoon rest is an older piece. But I am not convince the flower bowl is...but she is a pretty thing. And I am keeping her!
I did find a couple more doilies that I like the looks of... this one is actually more of a melon color than pink.... but my picture just does not capture the shade very well.
Too much flash.... but still pretty....
One of my newer potholder finds... in pink and green... with the two doilies.
This is a cute smaller vintage tablecloth. With a pretty crochet boarder. It is a odd weight of linen. And would benefit from a nice starching.
I am thinking it needs a nice bath with some powder bleach in the water. It needs a little boost to get it to sparkle for me....

Be sure to check out all the great finds from the last week at ~Apron Thrift Girl!

Best NOT to use bleach, which will fade the design and degrade the fabric. Soak it in an OxiClean/water solution instead. I just did this with some stained linen napkins, and it worked quite well.
