Okay, I may have a bit of a problem.
I have this many mixing bowls in my wee little kitchen.
But, I do have a place for everything and everything is in it's place!
I just find bits and bobs of things used in ordinary life so appealing and beautiful.
Be it bowls or boxes, quilts or linens, old blue canning jars or white ironstone pitchers and plates,
they all have a homey charm that I find hard to resist.
This lovely set of mixing bowls with their pink and blue stripe was a wedding present
given to us over 36 years ago.
I see bowls just like them in antique stores now!
These stoneware Marshall Pottery bowls came home on the plane with me on a long ago trip to Texas.
This was long before all the security and carry-on luggage regulations.
A set of matching stoneware canisters came home with me on that trip too.
I carried everything on board with me for fear they would be broken.
The canisters were given away quite some time ago, but I've hung onto these sturdy bowls.
These beautiful bowls are a set of Emile Henry mixing bowls from Williams Sonoma.
The Hubs got them for me for Christmas one year after he saw me admiring them in the store.
This set of white bowls with the red stripes were a gift from oldest daughter.
She bought them for me at Kitchen Kaboodle.
Red is my go to accent color. Love it.
I found this heavy duty, white, Roseville, Ohio stoneware bowl at the Goodwill.
It seems to be the perfect sized bowl and the one that I probably use most often.
This wonderful old bowl used to be my mother-in-law's.
OOPS! I forgot that here are a few more bowls on top of my kitchen cabinets.
Two Mason Cash mixing bowls and one little antique, burgundy colored bowl.
My "collections" tend to all be things used in daily life and work in days gone by.
There is something about finding beauty in the ordinary that speaks to me.
What do you collect?
It's almost FRIDAY, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a BLESSED weekend!
