Oh, I have wanted a lovely old wooden salad bowl for years now. I lust after the one my dad has and know that it will be a long, long, long time if ever that I could call it my own. A week ago, I learned of a similar bowl available from a wonderful shop near where I work. Today, it became mine. Thank you ever so much to the giver of this love. I washed it tonight and purchased some mineral oil to love it up before the salad this weekend. YEAH!!!!!!!
