No secret, I love blue. I love pretty blue things. They make me happy.
I like to have pretty things with a purpose. It cannot all be about looks.
Bowls are useful objects. They can have many different uses. That makes sense to me. So combine useful, blue, and pretty we have so scored!
I am lucky enough to live and work in Germany. That allows me the opportunity to travel and find just some really amazing objects!
For example, this bowl. I bought it in France. I just adore the poppies on the vivid yellow background. I pull this out for the Spring and Summer to store fruit.
Here is a closer look.
Right now our fruits are being displayed in this bowl that I picked up in Poland.
Lots of blues here!
Another bowl I picked up in Poland is this treat.
It is such a great size! Right now I pulled it out to use as a display for some great Fall goods. The dark blues and hint of a deeper green says Fall to me. I usually use it for veggie storage.
On one of our trips to Turkey, I picked up these amazing bowl that is hand painted with the Tree of Life. I know I have shown it here before but I just LOVE it.
Bad picture! Here is a better one…
This one I just have it out for display. I do not want to cover up the art!
Next is a bowl that have in our guest bedroom. I usually have handkerchiefs in here.
Softer blues with a touch of orange.
Lastly, a bowl that is not blue! I know, I know… I bought for Hubby in Egypt. I purchased it for a specific purpose… His wallet, keys, and other pocket ‘stuff’.
I love alabaster. A favorite childhood memory was admiring the alabaster piece on my grandmother’s dresser. I always thought it was precious. Now Hubby has a place for his stuff in a functional, yet pretty setting!
Great stuff right? I love when function , blue, and pretty align.
