My mom likes boxes. She accessorizes with pretty boxes, made of wood or glass or plastic, placed throughout the house. When I began to travel on my own, I would look for boxes in whatever city I was in to bring back as a souvenir for her.
Well, lately, I’ve taken a liking to something similar. Not boxes, but pretty bowls. I don’t know why, because I don’t have a lot of surfaces on which to put them. Maybe I need to create a bowl wall, like my plate wall in the dining room. Ah, there’s an idea for the kitchen remodel next year.
But for now, I’ve placed one on my night table for jewelry taken off before going to sleep.
Last month, when I went to Scott’s, I picked up this Revere bowl because I liked the shape and we know I love shine and shimmer. It was $5. It was dull and cloudy when I found it but I assumed it was silver plated and it would clean up ok. It didn’t really clean up to a pretty silver sheen, maybe it’s been stripped too much of its plating, but it did clean up to a sort of pewter-like shine. I decided to keep it and put a plant in it.
Love the gray one.
