My latest find was a big blue and white spongeware bowl for $2.50. I've shied away from this look in the past, worried it looked too country. And while I have no plans to amass a collection like this one below, I am finding the need to find more pieces. It would make for a fun table on the 4th or a bowl filled with lemons would be so pretty. Lately, I've just been making summer salads in my bowl. I think these two images show how fresh spongeware can look without going too country.
