Since I have a somewhat captive audience here on the blog, may I ask a favor? If you ever see one of these bowls in your travels, please grab one for me.
This is my atmospheric mood picture.
Or maybe I decided to write about this later in the day when it was very cloudy out. I’ll leave it up to you.
I bought 4 of these bowls from a wonderful kitchen store in Woodstock several years ago. Unfortunately, 2 of them broke. I’d like to say it was all Don’s fault, but truth be told, it was due to my own clumsiness. I tried to replace them but the ladies at the shop said the manufacturer wasn’t shipping them anymore. The stamp on the bottom of the bowl says ‘Kiss That Frog.’ So, a couple of years ago, I did a Google search and contacted them. Unfortunately, they were only for sale on a wholesale basis – and I didn’t need 100 of them.
Here’s a view of the both sides. (Pardon the annoying intrusion of our binoculars in the upper left of this photo.) Isn’t the design lovely? As you can see, I’m just about to settle down with some ramen noodles.Yes, it’s true. Apparently, I’m reliving my studio apartment days when ramen was a quick, cheap meal. It still is, I’ve found.
If I had my way, I’d have about 8 or 10 of these. That way I’d have some back-ups. Because I do break things.
These bowls make me happy. Just think how happy I would be if my dear readers found some! I’d reimburse you, of course. Just file this image away in the back of your head and maybe some day you will be walking around a shop and (cue choir of angels) there it will be. You never know. Stranger things have happened.
