pretty little bowls

I have an addiction to pretty little bowls. I have little collections of them all throughout my house.
I'm pretty sure my husband thinks I have some sort of sicknesswhen it comes to dishes, but that's a story for another time.

Small dishes can be a great accessory because they are inexpensive and have multiple uses.
I use my dishes for everything from jewelry to paperclips.
Most of my little bowls are vintage or come from Anthropologie but I
got a little itch when I saw these pretty dishes at West Elm:



And I love the matching mugs too!

  1. I think this is a wonderful addiction to have!!! It is a good thing I like plain white dishes or I might be adding this to my addiction list of pillows and mirrors and lamps. These are delightful and how fun to eat or drink out of the fun patterns!!!! Kathsyue

  3. I love little addictions like this. Some of my fav bowls and mugs are Jonathan Adler ones that he has put out lately. Everyone should have something they collect..in fact we just posted about that last week! Happy collecting! XO
