My trip to the thrift store

I went to the thrift store today and look what I found!  I was so delighted to find these plates.  Apparently they were made by children for a local food bank.  I'm assuming they may have been for a benefit of some sort.  There were about 20 or so plates and I picked these.  I really love them.  It also seems that they were professionally fired because they are very substantial.  I don't think they were done in one of those franchise ceramic shops.  Anyway I just had to share what I found.  I think they are delightful, don't you?
