This Shape

With yesterday's post, I realized I've never come clean on my obsession for the classic Greek urn. I'm nuts about the shape.

There's always a foot, and a bulbous body, a bit of a flare at the lip, and sometimes--not always--there are handles. Mostly I find them at junk shops and yard sales. I paid $40 for this one, below, but most of my finds are under $10--many under $5. I have urns in unidentified, beat-up metal:

And silver plate:

And glass:

And sterling silver:

And pottery. I found this beauty at Goodwill for just $1.79!

I use this little one for storing makeup stuff:

This big one comes in handy at parties, holding ice and cold wine:

This one is often out in the garden with a glass gazing ball resting in it:

But mostly, they sit around looking decorative. Family portrait!:

Love 'em all.
