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.

See, Fall!

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.

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.

Nice!

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.
