The latest addition to my list of things to buy are Buddha bowls. These functional and beautiful bowls are designed to fit into the palm of your hand and have a convenient hole for your thumb.
Although the color selection varies from store to store, I've seen them in tofu (white), olive, black bean (black), shitake (brown), aubergine, buttercream, Pacific (bright aqua blue), saltwater taffy (light turquoise), Moroccan (deep blue), Provence (dark cobalt), green curry (light) and snowpea (bright green). I want a set of four in tofu, but they would be fun to mix and match. The best selection of colors can be found at Flavour Design, but their price is $32, while most stores have them for $28.
I also found the divided Ooma bowl in the latest Uncommon Goods catalog. These are designed to rest on your hand, with your thumb on top. They would be so handy for parties or for having a few chips and your favorite dip in front of the flat screen. These bowls sell for $25.
And see how great they look with Russel Wright Iroquois Casual?
