This little sugar bowl was a wedding present ages ago...yes, ages! We were given two identical pieces, one of the tops of which eventually broke.

I have been happy to have a second not because I can't live without a sugar bowl, but because it is one of the prettiest things we were given back then. The acorn on the top fascinates the tiny fingers of children, who can't resist lifting the top off and looking inside.

There have been sweets for the sweet to discover; many-colored candy easter eggs, chocolates, mints, there's always something inside. And I hope they will remember that later on - the acorn bowl that always held a bit of comfort.

Attention! Celui-là est beaucoup trop près du bord ... c'est quand même un V.& B. ;)
Du coup je suis curieuse de découvrir ce qu'il contient. Pousse! Pousse!... chbingelebiling ... OH! du sucre :(
Love you Alli

Hi Allison,
What a sweet idea to put small treats in that precious sugar bowl.
I'm sure it will be fondly remembered by all who enjoyed your comforting confections.

Have a wonderful day ;)
