I'm not really a foodie, but if loving those bowls makes me one than I'll take it!

Hi Barbara, thanks for your comment on my blog! I have been getting your posts by email for a while now and enjoy every one of them, but often don't have time to comment. I adore your blog though and am trying harder to comment more often!!
