Salad Bowls: They're Not Just For Salad Anymore

I gasped when spying this salad bowl at a thrift store. Such a pretty shape. On the inside, it's wider at the bottom than at the top. I think it's a perfect vessel for our front hall landing strip. Maybe we could use it to hold Mr. Man's pocket change. Which reminds me. I've been meaning to ask you HOW DO MEN PRODUCE SO MUCH CHANGE?!!?! It's like magic how many nickels and dimes and quarters come out of Mr. Man's pockets every day.

  1. You're dead on with the men/excessive pocket change phenomenon. My husband, my dad...like walking slot machines.

    Beautiful bowl!

  2. Ah Yes!! I have this same bowl...if that's teak wood. Mine has a small crack in it now, after years of faithful service. :-) And about the change, I DON'T KNOW!!! But I take advantage of my hubby's. Whenever there is a whole dollar's worth I get it for my stash bank! That's been the deal for a while. I've 'racked up'!!! LOL

  3. Start scooping it up and hiding it! Then go buy yourself... well, I can't think of what you should buy. I love the bowl though. (And don't tell anyone that was my idea.)

    Also I love your porch transformation and have just been too lazy to comment and tell you. It looks awesome!

  4. omg. I bought my husband one of those electronic coin banks for xmas, and we've so far put in almost $100 in JUST CHANGE. our closet bottoms are particularly a treasure trove.

  6. Love the bowl..it looks great on that table. I'm with you on the change mystery. I'm glad he has all that change because I save it and every Easter we stuff plastic eggs with change and hide them for the Grandkiddos to find. They love getting the change! I used to save it when my kids were little and that's what I bought all the stocking stuffers with. (I mean I gave Santa the change and he bought all the goodies..)

  7. I like that little table it's on too! I need something like that for our landing strip as well... but the foyer is contained on all sides except for the doorway so i'm worried it would get in the way even if it were narrow. not an ideal situation.

    I really like the bowl! And I like the size... not too big. Very fun!

  10. It's a fact that economists want to study my husband. Entire think tanks filled with the country's brightest minds want to research his habits, dissect his coin-holding abilities, and publish papers on his pockets.

  11. I love it. I too have a mid-century thing as you know.

    And it MUST be some kind of phenomenon! The men-folk and the change. What IS the deal? I have been wondering about that for some time. I think we may be able to buy a new car (okay, perhaps a stretch--a subway sandwich maybe) with all of the goofy change I find in my husband's pockets!

  12. love, love, love

    oh, and I totally think I've got the change thing figured out: most men's wallets don't have a change area, so when they get change they just shove it in their pocket. . . and then next time they buy something, them, being men, don't go digging for the proper change, so they then add more change to their already jingling pockets, and so on and so forth. . .
