The Empty Bowls project hosts a sale in Round Rock this year. For sale are bowls made by area children; the proceeds go to the food pantry. It's held at a primary school, with pottery demonstrations, music from school groups, and general celebration.
I also bid on a little heart shaped red bowl at the silent auction. I don't know if the hole in the bottom was intentional, but the sale organizers made a silk purse out of a sow's ear by adding a begonia in just the right color and calling it a planter.
Yesterday I got the call that I had one this sweet little piece and I was very pleased I may have to transplant the begonia into something larger, but for now, it will grace my table and make me smile.
