Some of my best finds are the random ones, the ones I don’t even know I want until I see them. This beautiful salad bowl was like a bolt of lightning, jolting me with such awe when I saw it. The fun shape, striking design, and delightful black and gold rectangles and starbursts were of such a combination that I was helpless against its allure. Resistance was futile.
It looks even better with a salad in it! Let me tell you, I love salads and they have become a great deal more enjoyable to make and eat with this beauty to put them in. I know, you’re sitting there rolling your eyes at me, thinking, “It’s just a bowl.” Yes, I know it’s just a bowl . . . just a fantastic bowl! I came upon one of the same shape but that had orange rectangles and sun faces on it. While I didn’t care for that particular surface design it did come with four small bowls that matched. When I stopped to consider that my bowl may have had small bowls that went with it at some point, I got a little weak in the knees. Oh, to possess them!
I have since found on eBay two bowls exactly the same except for the rectangles being red. One was a lone bowl, like mine, and the other had the small set of bowls with it. I was tempted to buy the full set, but the red didn’t speak to me as genuinely as the black. I may or may not find more bowls like it, to pair with this one, but I am certain my satisfaction with this one will not be fading.
Now I’m off to eat something, the salad and popcorn are making me hungry! I may even use the glorious bowl that whispers to fill it, delighting with each use. (I know, I know, it’s just a bowl!)
