You know how sometimes you see something in a shop and you just have to have it? You're not sure what you're going to do with it, or even exactly where you're going to put it....but you know without a shadow of a doubt that you want it? This bowl had the same effect when our Danish supplier showed it to us.
Is it the gorgeous shade of blue? Is it the rough cream ceramic outer paired with the lovely shiny inner? We cannot say. After a great deal of thought we know that we could eat cornflakes from it, keep it near the front door and use it for keys, or even fill it with shells and put it in the bathroom. But we thought none of these things when we first saw it - the only thing that came into our head was 'we have to have one of these'.
We wonder if there's a support group for people like us? Bowlaholics Anonymous?
