Over the years Dave and I have amassed bushels of random sugar bowls and even randomer lids. The tops and bottoms never matched, but their patterns and designs were way too beautiful to leave behind. I guess we thought that eventually the bowls and lids would come together to form a perfect union. In an optimistic moment of merchandising, I even displayed a few bushels of mixed sugar bowls next to a barrel of mixed lids with a sign Find Gods Match For You.
Recently I saw Sara plunge her
hand into an innocent little cactus- like plant, pull it out of its little
planter home and plop it into one of the vintage sugar bowls.

And then it hit me... Sara is a plant killer!
No Julie, I'm turning these gorgeous little sugar bowls into planters - they're way too beautiful NOT to use simply because they have no matching lids. And BTW it's called DIY... said Sara.
