Hello, dear friends, and Happy Thursday!!
Today is my daughter Janelle's Birthday and we will be
celebrating it later with
steaks on the grill and chocolate cake,
all made by her "cook extraordinaire" hubby, Austin!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, sweetie!!! Can't wait!!!
My Picture Trail is back to normal again and though I still don't know what happened
I'm glad it is now working, at least to visit!!
Someone did try to sign my Guest book and it was not
cooperating!!! Hope it will start playing nice, soon!!
Thanks so much for your patience and understanding!!!
The title of my post today reflects a love I have for bowls
and I decided to share some photos of bowls
around my home and how I use them!!
Large black bowl filled with pieces of Stone fruit
that sits on my kitchen table!
Tiny little Yellow ware bowl filled with dried orange slices!
Anytime I eat an orange I save and dry the slices!
They smell AND look wonderful!!!
Large trencher that holds a number of my old bobbins and spools!
Love the handles on this beauty!
Another old trencher that is home to old butter presses and paddles!
Love the patina of the old wood, don't you?
This very large Yellow ware bowl has a practical use
in my kitchen as it holds potatoes!!
This is my grand dog Charlotte's favorite bowl
as it is home to her doggie treats!!
A Birthday gift this past year and it is very heavy wood
called a Burl bowl!
It it the perfect home for some Stone fruit!
This is perhaps my favorite wood bowl!
It is VERY LARGE and VERY OLD
and holds my dried pomegranates
quince and dried pumpkin stems!!
My favorite Yellow ware bowl is also
very large and filled with dried
potpourri and oranges!
A spicy candle nestles in the middle!
Yet another bowl filled with old tin cutters,
another thing I love to collect!!
Bowls even look beautiful just stacked up
ready and waiting to be used!!
Or how about a Bowl rack?
Three old bowls make a wonderful statement
all by themselves!!
Or filled to overflowing with
in this old trencher with make do repairs!
As you can see, I REALLY DO LOVE BOWLS and
enjoy all the many ways to use them,
whether they are filled with special treasures or collections,
are stacked up, or even empty!!
They are wonderful to collect, not only for their practical and functional use
but also because they are beautiful!!
Just keep your eye out for them at Thrift stores and garage sales!! You never know where you might find one, just waiting for you!!! I have found most of mine that way and am always looking!!!
Do YOU love bowls, and do you collect them? I would so love to hear about it and also about your favorite bowl, too, if you have one!!
As always, thank you SO MUCH for stopping by and visiting with me today!!!
It is a Joy to hear from YOU!!!
Wishing you a "Bowl Full" of Blessings, my friends~
