Happy Thursday evening to you. To all you dough bowl lovers, this is for you. I know several of you have emailed me about the small to mid size dough bowl which doesn’t always come around. I was going to post this tomorrow but couldn’t wait! So happy to announce I just got in a FABULOUS lot of dough bowls…might I even say my prettiest batch yet. I want to keep each and every one of them. I have a total of 10 pieces, assorted sizes, long and round.

The rounds are a great size and VERY hard to come by. I got three really big ones (all over 42″) one monster at 55″ (looks like a canoe) and 6 of the very hard to find mid to small sized. They are a rich beautiful brown, just got cleaned and  freshly waxed and these are seriously beautiful. Old and found in Belgium and Hungary. So first lets take a look at these beauties, email me if you are interested as always. This is what I got from this special lot, so likely they won’t go onto the online store as its a limited lot. If you have been waiting for one, trust me they do not get any prettier than this!

UPDATE- All dough bowls are sold. I will be getting in one more box on Monday which I think are the larger ones but feel free to email me on Mon. or Tuesday as I am hoping (fingers crossed) that there are a few more of the small/med. sized. Thanks for your interest, the response has been overwhelming…how I wish I had more!

They measure handle to handle from 15″ to 22″ long (approx. 12-16″ wide)

 I devote my post today therefore on how to decorate with a dough bowl and seeing them in all their many ways……..

My own is currently filled with a big batch of pears

 Stunning with holiday greenery and pinecones!! The old Painted Cottage

Love the idea of one on a center table with greens, so pretty! The Old Painted Cottage

A no brainer to use on a mantle….for the holidays or any other time. PB
I put flowers in mine and have to say I love the look! 
So…what do you think? Like dough bowls? Have one? How do you like to use yours? I love them and have truly gained an appreciation for them as decorative objects, its so neat to have a piece of history in your home……just thinking of how it might have been used, where, by whom, 50, 100 years ago! Would love to know what you think of dough bowls. Thanks as always for stopping in, wishing you a fabulous evening and weekend!
For everyone in Hurricane Sandy’s path, hope you stay safe and out of harms way. It is a brutal storm and is predicted to bring tremendous rain and very strong winds. If we lose power I may not be on the computer for a few days (CANNOT imagine)!!! Lets hope that’s not the case! In any case, wishing you well and happy weekend!

What great ideas!!! I’ve never really thought about them until now! Perfect for the fall and winter and I can see them in a cabin in the mountains too! I’m sure they would work for the warmer months as well filled with sand, shells and candles! How much are they?

Good evening Tina! It snowed here today and the display of your bowls with pine cones and greens is a welcomed and cozy picture! I enjoy these bowls and I have a lovely one that is so gnarled and beautiful. I think I am going to go pull it out of my closet and fill it with pumpkins!

Have a fabulous evening my dear. Anita

Tina,I am in love with dough bowls and I still do not have one, maybe it is time to get one. It would be perfect on my breakfast bar. I am going to go and look at them in your shop! Loved all of the above images!

Love the rustic feel of the dough bowls. I like the way you are showing them with holiday decor and sitting in various areas of the home. In front of the fireplace.. so pretty!

Wow!! I want one. These are so beautiful, the ones you got in are gorgeous. I have always wanted one ever since my sister came back from Belgium with one. She filled hers with lemons and limes, I love the way you put the flowers in it. I am going to email you now. Beautiful examples of how to use a special piece like this.

Don’t have a dough bowl but definitely want one. Very common in the UK as well, and my in laws have a lovely selection. Love the images you’ve shown on how to use them and what to display. I’m guessing they are quite heavy so the postage for Australia from you would be a bit much, so I’ll see if I can find one around these parts.

I love it!! I want one for when I bake my Challah..then I’d use it for decorative purposes. You gave us so many great ideas! Have an awesome weekend!

Your shop is a wonderland of endless goodies. I especially am loving the Christmas decorations in the dough bowl. Love the rustic vibe that the bowl adds. Laughing at your canoe analogy! Hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend, Tina! Thanks for your very sweet comment this morning. xo

Tina love love the dough bowls. I never knew there were so many ways to use them. The flowers is my favorite, what a great idea! I also love the greenery and pinecones. Beautiful post.

Love these. I want one! I love that you can use them casually or all decked out for the holidays, love how you used yours with fruit and flowers. Its beautiful filled with candles too. Such great examples of how versatile they can be.

They look great, Tina. Love yours with the white flowers – and that moss centerpiece is so creative and pretty. Such a versatile piece.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! XO

I do have a nice bog antique one and love it for so many reasons.
Love that shot of the bowl in the white dining room with the powdery
blue hydrangeas spilling over. That shade of blue is just gorgeous.

My bowl is under my island on a shelf right now filled with round
river balls from the Chatahoochee River! (I think they may be marble?)

The shapes and sizes you are selling are amazing. Love them!

Wow, Tina… so many beautiful uses for the dough bowls. I may have to bite the bullet and buy one! Hope you have a fabulous weekend! xo

Tina, I got a dough bowl last year for my bday from my sister who knew I wanted one. I love it, I fill it with pears, greenery, ornaments and pinecones for the holidays and put a big giant hurricane candle in the middle and its a pine scented candle and I just let it burn all day…it brings the feeling of the holidays into my home in a beautiful way. Love all these examples especially the hydrangeas and white flowers. Have a nice weekend.

this got me very stoked about dough bowls! really! i love seeing how people fill them. my huge mambajamba is full of my conch shell collection at the moment, but we know the season has changed, right?

it’s tricky because of the scale so i am going to sleep on it.

love to you and so happy to greet you again and let you know you’re all that.


The ones you got are so beautiful, love the rich color and that size is wonderful. I have one a very big one which I keep on a console in my foyer, its filled with carpet balls which I picked up while on a antiques road trip a few years back. Dough bowls are great and I got some good ideas for the holidays on how to decorate with them.
Hope you are having a nice weekend!

Happy weekend, my
dough bowl loving
friend! Of course, I
love ’em, too. For years
I looked for one that
would have a real
presence on my dining
room table, but ended
up with an old wooden
tool box, which are
filled with dried hydrangea
at the moment. If I
had a spot for one, I’d
snap one of these up
in a moment. Good
luck with Sandy; I’m
hoping the predictions
are wrong!!

Already gone! Not fair! That’s what I get for being slow as molasses…

I will grab one from your next shipment.

I can think of a million uses. One filling it with cutlery and linen napkins when we have many guests over for a meal.

Hugs to you and stay safe. Sending you lots of good energy.

P.s That ini mini keyboard phone is not bad at all!

I hope that you are not getting slammed as we are here, it is a little scary now that they are calling and warning by phone about the flooding in the neighborhood!

Be safe! Elizabeth

P.S. Love to dough bowls but I already have two.

Tina…I have 2 of them…and they are always in use! I love this first picture used for the white flowers. Seriously at Christmas time a few candles, pine and pinecones is such a simple great look!!!

Would you be able to to turn your beautiful dough bowls in to candles? I would be looking at purchasing a large amount of stock.
