Dough Bowls

Today I visited one of my favorite local flea markets and, among other treasures, I found a few antique dough bowls from Romania that I am thrilled about.   The seller (a Romanian) didn't speak much English or German so it was a bit tough to communicate at first.  However, it must have been meant to be because we happened to take my Father-in-law along and - here's the lucky part - he speaks some Romanian!  He did some business there many years ago and could remember a fair amount, so in the end it worked out well and doing business with the seller was a pleasure.  I call that good shopping karma.

I am so excited to be adding them to my Linen Haus collection.  I promise to share a picture of them when I get some time to do a little photo session with my newest finds, but for now, here are a few ideas to get you started - many of which are perfect for a rustic inspired Fall display:

I also came across this video for a pretty, simple fall display using a dough bowl:




What do you think of dough bowls?  If you have one, how do you use yours?
