My first…

Broken Polish Pottery dish!

As you know, I am very vertically challenged. That means that my cupboards’ LOWEST shelf is BARELY within my reach. Dumb me…I knocked this bowl out of the cabinet as I was reaching for a nearby plate. The bowl fell onto a hard metal pan underneath it (in the dryer rack), and split it in two! So sad! Unfortunately, this is my FAVORITE size bowl, and it is veeerry unlikely that I’ll ever be able to find a matching shape again (this pattern was limited edition). Now I am down to just 2 others this same size (it’s a good thing I like their pattern better, anyhow!).

Now it will join the box of other broken dishes that I don’t have the heart to throw away. I have quite a stash of pottery that has been damaged in shipment over the last 5 summers. I’ve never broken a piece at home…this was a first. It’s too pretty to toss, and I swear that SOMEDAY I will have to do something creative with all of it.

    I am finally catching up on your blog again. I know it is sad as your anticipate closing this chapter of your life, but I know another fun chapter will open up! Sad about the polish pottery. It was a lovely pattern. I feel the same way, I have a few favorites and if any of them break, I don't know what I will do.

    I bet all those broken dishes would make a lovely mosaic mirror or something.

    I went to a place where you can paint your own pottery and they made magnets out of all the broken pieces. Maybe that could work?? Or like your friend said–a mosiac. Even make a backsplash behind your kitchen sink with them??
