Check out these faux crab shells.  They were $0.99 cents a piece at Goodwill. They are just my kind of quirky, so I had to get them both (and I plan to give one to my mom).  I think they were hand made (maybe by someone practicing pottery?).  There are some faint markings written into the clay on the backside.

I really love how the glaze has a slight bluish tint.   They’re so cute as a small dish in a bathroom…

…or as a little bowl for jewelry on a night table.

I took a break from working on the formerly neglected entry this week, but I plan to tackle the stairs this weekend.  Any projects on your end this weekend?  Have you added any quirky pieces to your space?

    These dishes look like bakers for Crab Imperial or Deviled Crab, maybe vintage. Way cute and I have admired similar ones at antique stores here in MD. Here’s an example of a glass vintage set on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/150613695/deviled-crab-baking-dishes-glasbake-by?ref=sr_gallery_13&ga_search_query=crab+dishes+vintage&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all
