Today I thought I would talk about bowls as I have recently made quite a few recently and they are one of the items I like making the most!
As you all know I have a thing about bowls - the dinkier the better and perferably with colour added as I find them cheerful in the house!
As you know I make enameled copper bowls and they come in all shapes and sizes. However I get the odd email from customers wondering what they may use them for. Well.....where do I start?
The choices are endless, so I will give you some ideas as to what I do with mine...
Decorative Bowls - Every home needs ornaments and sometimes I just love to have the enamel on display on my mantle or kitchen dresser in an array of complimentary colours and different shapes - It really is as simple as that! I love cute items in my home as these are what make it feel...well....homely :) They look great grouped together in threes (everything should be grouped in threes and fives!) and they can add a pop of colour to your decor at the same time. Don't be tempted to limit them to just the kitchen either. Placed strategically in the bedroom or lounge can work just as well.
Store jewellery and small items ie cufflinks, rings, earrings, necklaces, small change on your night stand
Great for keeping buttons, paperclips and other loose items tidy and in one place.
Bath salts or small bath melts
In the Kitchen - condiment bowls for salt & pepper or spices as well as sauces & dips
Place a tealight candle in one and watch the flame bring it to life, bouncing the colours around!
Serve snacks ie nuts, bombay mix and other party nibbles
Great for olives and also the pips (one for each!)
House warming gift or something to take to dinner instead of an obligatory bottle of wine.
Tealight holders or votive candle holders (my favourite use)
I hope this has given some of you a few ideas as to how to make use of them and if you have any other suggestions, then please feel free to add your comments below as I would love to hear from you!
Have a great week!
