Anyway... They are pricey on their own, each one of them. Even Ross can't bring the bowls down from $5.99 since last year (and since Ross is famous for instant 50% off, that meant that said bowls go for $12 a pop!) (Listen, I think if it's a small dainty bowl, I expect a dainty price!)
So, since Easter is peeking around the corner and my original lot of beauties are stashed away under lock and key in storage and currently not accessible, the ol' noggin is abuzzed with alternates. The more things thrown in my mental sorting file ("take another look"/"too hard"/"just ewww!"), the more this line popped in there! Finally, after seeing one I really liked at Tuesday Morning (at a great steal), I decided to use it as an accent for my upcoming Easter tablescapin' adventure! And since my awesome dh can't get my Easter stash out of "stuff" prison, "what now?" wasn't even offered on the table, he just nodded... :-D
(Bordallo Pinheiro-Cabbage trifle bowl w/ lid. Tuesday Morning Grand Opening in our neighborhood; as you can see from $35 down to $15.99- 54%, but with a little nick, barely noticeable, I got it for $7.99, a total of 77%! )
They're all labeled handmade in Portugal, so that makes each one an original in itself (soooo yummy of a fact!). But... since it's a cabbage series, I can also use it on St. Paddies Day! (if I ever get around to it. Plus... I can use it with my Shadow Iris line since it is for my Easter table after all! Also, Filipinos love eating cabbage, so I can see another Filipino dinner coming up!
Yay, two holidays and an ethnic dinner for one dinnerware! Mission accomplished.
