Uncommon Goods

April 22, 2009


One of the blogs I read regularly is Bloody Hell, It’s a Book Barrage! Chartroose usually makes me laugh and brightens my day.  Occassionally, Surfer Dude makes a guest appearance on her blog, describing a book in surfer lingo.  Usually, I have no idea what he’s talking about, but that’s okay, because he’s fun to look at.   Recently, I knew the answer and was lucky enough to win a gift certificate to Uncommon Goods!  Since they don’t carry books, I was able to indulge in my other extravagance – dishes.  I ordered the bowl pictured here and it came this week.  I just love it!  If you’ve never been to Chartroose’s web site, you definitely need to check it out.

    Great bowl! I love collecting unique dishware like that. I collect coffee mugs so I can relate. I’ve checked out her site before but I’ve never seen the ‘surfer dude’s’ post – I’ll look fer that fer sure, dude! lol

    I love dishes too! On another note, you’ve been quite lucky lately. You really need to purchase a lottery ticket.

    That bowl is awesome!

  15. April 22, 2009 1:35 pm

    What a great dish! I would love to collect that sort of thing, but with two boys, two cats, and a dog..all perishables are kept under lock and key!

    Forgot to mention…I LOVE Uncommon Goods’ flybrary bookshelf! What a great idea!

    What a beautiful bowl – I love the color inside (instead of white)!

    I love her site. I have won a couple of great books from her. Cute, cute bowl.

    surfer lingo sounds like fun and if he’s nice to look at that is an added bonus!! I love that bowl!!

  31. April 23, 2009 10:09 pm

    Oh what a cool bowl! I love dishes too – as much as I love a nice setting, I’ve always wanted to have a big cupboard filled with mismatched pieces picked especially for their uniqueness.

    Love the website too, lots of great stuff!

  32. April 24, 2009 9:55 pm

    I LOVE Uncommon Goods! Lucky you – what a fun website to get to shop at!
