A simple and fun after-Christmas buy
I did very little after-Christmas shopping this year. Did find a couple of things which I won't show that I have put away for next year's gifting. Bought a couple of bags of New England Coffee in holiday flavors like Eggnog and Gingerbread Cookie. About the only thing I found that I thought unique enough to take a picture of is these pretty bowls. I bought two of them.
Probably the only reason I found these is that I noticed them while doing my regular grocery shopping at our local Hannaford supermarket. These pretty bowls with their pine cone motif are a sort of plastic, like melamine, I would say. They were 79¢ each! They are sort of an odd size, not really large enough for serving bowls, but too big for cereal or desserts. We found that they did work well to hold a salad for two people, and I'm sure I will think of other uses. Decorative uses, if nothing else!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
