DOUGH BOWLS AND BREAD BOARDS YES!!!!!!!

I can't seem to get enough of dough bowls and bread boards. 
I've written about them before here.
The images below are of some I have for sale @Buckeystown Design Co-op.

These breadboards are from Europe.  Some have been recently stenciled.

Copper repairs add to their charm.

Dough bowls and bread boards are the perfect decor mix.



The natural wear on this bowl is exceptional.

There's a copper repair on this bowl.

Do you use bread boards and dough bowls in your home?

BOUQUETS WITH BRANCHES AND OTHER YARD FINDS

While I'm waiting for blooms from my garden, I love to use branches from my yard as bouquets.  I have a huge demijohn on the landing in my foyer.   It's the vase for some birch branches.

Sometimes I paint them.

I painted these branches too and placed them into a vase with shells and sand to support them.

Branches don't have to be bare to work as a bouquet.  I have Nandina shrubs in my yard.
 They're a bouquet source all year long. 

BOUQUET OF BRANCHES FROM MY NANDINA SHRUB

I clipped some branches from my cedar tree and wrapped them around some spheres
 inside a dough bowl on my dining room table.

My yard pickings aren't limited to branches.  I even invade my neighbor's yard.   She has a  huge tree that drops the most wonderful seed pods.  I added them to an urn and complemented them with some of my shed antlers.

What do you bring in from outdoors to use inside?
