I have always loved Mary Engelbreit’s “Life is Just a Chair of Bowlies” illustration. Today I decided that I could no longer tolerate the dust and crumbs that had invaded my dish cupboard. As I unloaded everything and realized how many Japanese bowls I have acquired, I decided to photograph my own “Chair of Bowlies.” Please note that this is not all of my “bowlies.” I only photographed the Japanese ones, the bowls that I use everyday. My cupboards hold many more “bowlies.” I won’t allow myself to buy anymore bowls unless I get rid of some. If you like bowls let me know and I will send some your way!
