TuEsDays DispLay ChaiN..BowLs

Good Afternoon and Evening for some of you!!! Sorry for the late post..got lazy and built a fire and watched t.v. and took an hour nap..just what I needed apparently..We got snow today..but will save the photos for thursday.;) I am linking up to Misi's tuesday display chain..and today is about BOWLS...I love my bowls and some have stories others do not..the one above I received from a friend when I had her daughter for a weeks visit...I almost got rid of this bowl..but am so glad I didn't..I love the chip and the patina this bowl has..
I love my pyrex bowls the best..but I do have my longaberger bowls here too..although I use my old ones the most.;) just a sense of nostalgia I guess..I love them..
love these brown beauties..they remind me of a hot fudge sundae..I love the brown color..I have used these in my candle making before..as I love the look of them as well.;)would be great icecream bowls and hot cocoa cups...
I love these little sherbet cups..and they remind me of sherbet and spring..;)
my thrift store strawberry bowls.;)
that little black bowl was made for me in a swap.;) love it;)
I got these when I did a home show for a gal that I now do her show in July..she had 3 of these orange beauties along with 4 plates..I just couldn't resist that fall orange..I use these when I make pasta..;)
this bowl came from Vietri Italy..they have wonderful pottery and reasonable prices too..you can see this is starting to show some wear..but can't throw it out..I use this when I make chinese chicken salad.;) I love the colors used here..
These also came from italy..(we lived in Naples Italy for 3 years with the Navy)..same place..I have 2 of each..I also use these when we have guests over for pasta..:)
my coors serving dishes..they remind me of restaurant wear..I don't use these often but need to..I love using these serving veggies..
my decorative crow plate that I picked up last year..I see these in prim homes and love them..and was so happy when I saw this.;)
an old bauer bowl..reminds me of a behive..
not bowls..but I love my firkins that Linda made me.:) would love a whole stack of them in different colors..don't care if they are real or not..love them..
a thrift store bowl that I primmed up..:)
more thrift store bowls and other wood items that I transformed..I love this shelf by firecracker kid..) so much fun to change out..:)


last but not least..and not a bowl either..I made this using a recycled wool sweater and my sizzix..I sat and watched the return of Nanny McPhee yesterday and stitched this out..this will be going on my etsy site after I am through here..I liked the first Nanny McPhee better but this one was worth watching too..and great for kids...well that is it for me today..I hope you all had a wonderful day..I am in the middle of transforming that trencher..I painted it one color and it looks muddy..so am redoing it and finishing up some other projects to get in the mail tomorrow..have a wonderful evening everyone..and thanks for dropping by..:)

  14. Loving your bowls! But my eye was drawn to that Big Strawberry Advertisement in the window. Is that old or a repro? And if it is a new, where did you get it?

    I liked the first Nanny McPhee better too.

  16. What a great collection. I have some oldies from my Mom that she got from her bridal shower in 1953 that I love. Fire King, Pyrex are so cool. Sometimes I find the best bowls in supermarkets. They'll have that display at the end of an aisle of bowls, cups, plates and you can find some unique ones. I love the oldies.
