My Grandparents sent us a first anniversary gift – a lovely, handpainted fruitbowl, decorated with hyacinths.
The bottom is lovely, too.
I was thinking that it looked so familiar when we unwrapped it – it turns out that the artist is a friend of my grandparents, and my mom has had a similar fruit bowl from her since forever. It came with instructions (we both found it surprisingly touching that they’re typewritten – not something we see much).
The bowl arrive the day before our first CSA bag arrived, and we quickly tried it out on the apriums (tiny apricot/plum hybrids). They looked gorgeous against the blue bowl and kept well. This will clearly be a new favourite kitchen standby.
