Center of Attention

I've probably written several times about my penchant for those antique, wooden dough bowls that are commonly seen in colonial-style homes and on tables as centerpieces.  They can be hundreds of dollars depending on the age and size. Sigh. I had resigned myself to finding an alternative. Until I found this $15 bowl at an antique store.



I love the cute, little carved handles.



Some other items I've used as centerpieces include an antique scale basin...


... and a handmade willow & chickenwire basket.



All three are long, low-profile options, which I prefer for centerpieces. (Who enjoys peering around a huge vase to see the person at the other end of the table?)

I've also enjoyed this cute little centerpiece I found on sale at Kirkland's...


It's four glass bottles in a wee wire crate... reminiscent of apothecary or or antique soda bottles.

Happy decorating!
