jove is fond of collecting items we find outside. most of the time these nature collections are made during our walks around the neighborhood. yesterday we were in a small woods and jove found a lot of green acorns that have been knocked out of trees during recent storms. he carried it in his pockets until we got home.
this bowl was made by mom; it is part of a collection of really beautiful dishes she made for us: cool square plates, little bowls and appetizer trays. i have tried to photograph the plates, but the lighting inside doesn't do them justice. i will do an outdoor photo shoot with the plates soon. i love them.
