The weather is getting colder, and the yard sales are few and far between. I hadn't been to the thrift shops lately, having had little luck at them over the summer, but I figured it was worth a shot. Goodwill actually had some things I wanted, and the prices were right. These Azurite cups are beautiful in person, but difficult to photograph -- a ghostly, pale blue that is almost translucent.
And then I found a Le Creuset enameled cast iron skillet for $3!! It's a little one, but would probably be about $80 new. How do I know it is Le Creuset?
