    Potpourri bowls

    Chas's T lights and potpourri bowls are always a good 'gift item' for sales coming up to Christmas. Started making the latter and stocking up. Here'as one example.



    The lids are pewter and the bowls on the ones I made today are from an old oak beam .

    Hey pete nice bowl. If you don't mind me asking, where do you get your tops? I've been making a number of them my self, but only have a few designs to chose from when it comes to the tops. Always looking for something different that no one else over here has.

    Very nice, Pete. I'll echo Steve in asking where you got the top. I've not seen that design from any of the US suppliers.

    Nice looking pot Pete. I also get my lids from CSUSA plus I have found some at Hallmark stores. You can see one of the hallmark lids in my cedar pot post.

    Thanks, Pete. I've also used the CSI ones you pointed to, but it looks like Stainton has a few different patterns available. (They're probably all coming out of the same shop in China, huh?)
