As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

The Versatile Dough Bowl

The Nester is hosting a "spur of the moment linky" (her words) today about dough bowls.  Yes, you read that right...dough bowls.   

And since I own two dough bowlsone antique, one reproductionthat I use in my home year round...and since I wonder if I'll ever have the opportunity to join a Dough Bowl Linky Party ever again (do you think?), I decided to link up! 

I often use the oblong (reproduction) dough bowl in seasonal displays...

As part of an autumn vignette

As a Christmas colonial-style centerpiece

Displaying our "He Lives" eggs on Resurrection Sunday

...while the round (antique) one takes year-round residence on the coffee table.
Filled with autumn potpourri

...and then Christmas potpourri and candle

Who knew I'd ever be posting about dough bowls?  Not me.  ~grin~


  1. Gorgeous. Neat ways to fill the dough bowl.

  2. Oh, Cheryl. I'm sorry I've missed so many of your recent postings. I love the new look of your blog. That flowered background is so beautiful. I love these pictures of your dough bowls and their many wonderful uses. I wish everyone could see inside your home and experience the sweet, sweet atmosphere. Hugs to you ....
