How the dragonfly bowl found its place in my home

I liked this handmade bowl a lot better when I bought it at the American Indian market Downtown than I did when I got it home.

I really enjoy pottery, and thought this would look good in my home– but no matter where I placed it, it seemed to disappear. Its gentle design just didn’t stand out anywhere.

But then I figured out it made great remote-control storage on my family-room coffee table, and suddenly my buyer’s remorse disappeared. Sometimes something new just has to find its right use in a home.
