When we entertain (which has been a lot lately) I like to use a mish mosh of special serving bowls and dishes. I don't even care if they match just as long as they are cute. We always have a bowl of nuts (cashews, almonds, honey roasted peanuts, what have you) and I've yet to find something cute for the nuts so I always put the nuts in a dull glass bowl. I want to spruce up our "nut service" so today while Tom and I were browsing the aisles of Tuesday Morning (he gets corralled about 4 times a year for this type of shopping) I came across a tiny bowl that I fell in love with. It's by Portmeirion (all their stuff is AMAZING) and it retails for about $28. But! Here at Tuesday Morning it was a measly $13, which, perhaps is a high price to pay for housing nuts- but I looooooved it. I said to Tom that I'd like to get it and asked what he thought.
"I think you're nuts for spending 13 bucks on a bowl for nuts!
But isn't it cute???
MY NUT BOWL
However once it's filled with nuts you won't be able to see the little creatures inside the bowl.
Maybe Tom was right.
