I decided a long time ago that there were far too many pretty kitchenware patterns for me to devote myself to just one. And with some beautiful new bowls as birthday presents,
I thought I'd take out some of my favourites to show you.
Some are from travels abroad, but most of them given to me as gifts.
And I love them!
And I use them. Which sometimes is stressful because they get broken.
The cherry glass in this image is the last remaining glass
from a set belonging to my lovely grandparents.
(ok, so I don't let ANYBODY use that one!)
And in a dramatic Everyone-help-clearing-the-table accident,
I now only have 10 days of Christmas. oh well.
The bottom bowl here was one of the 4 bowls I got for my birthday.
It came with a note attached:
'From us 3, because we love you, and because sometimes we break things.'
