Collecting Wooden Bowls


With wonderful crispy Fall weather approaching, illness it put me in the mood for nesting. When I am not working on my website, or taking care of family matters, I love decorating and getting ready for the colder months ahead. I am really looking forward to honkering down, doing lots of cooking, especially homemade soups and pies, but I love decorating too, as I am sure many of you must know by now. One of my favorite things to collect are early wooden bowls.



This is an wonderful large early birds eye maple bowl that I have owned for about 30 years. I still enjoy it’s beauty after all these years. In the Spring and Summer I like leaving it empty, enjoying it’s stand alone beauty, but in the colder months I enjoy filling it with whatever is appropriate for the time of year. Filled with greens and pine cones or old Christmas balls during the holidays, it makes a lovely centerpiece. There are so many ways to display old wooden bowls, and if you are lucky enough to own early painted ones, displaying them painted side up makes a beautiful display.

This picture is one I saved from a magazine years ago. I love the simplicity of this room. I love the painted bowl, isn’t it just delicious! It belongs to Ralph Lauren, who is also a collector of country things. His quote is so true. Always buy what you love and then worry later where you will put it. You can always find a place for something that you love.


I will be offering a lovely old bowl, painted in the most gorgeous red color, in my store today. If you love painted wooden bowls, but don’t want to pay hundreds of dollars for one, I hope you’ll stop by and see this little gem for sale at a very reasonable price.



Take care everyone and remember always have a

    Love these photos. I have a large wooden dough bowl from my father’s family. It probably dates from the late 1800s. I keep it at our farmhouse and love to see it filled with apples, or bois d’arc apples, or small gourds and pumpkins.
