Empty Bowls Dallas 2012 was so much fun! I was a first timer at this event, seeing as how I am new to Dallas and all! So for those of you wondering what exactly this event is....let me explain. Empty Bowls is an annual fundraising campaign benefiting the North Texas Food Bank. Part of the fun of the event is that you get to sample various yummy soups from local eateries along with breads and desserts! What more could you ask for, right?! Oh but there is more..... You also get to pick out your very own artisan handmade bowl. Be sure to come prepared to fight off the crowds to find your perfect gem of a bowl, by the way everyone was acting you would have thought they were giving out diamonds!
If making decisions isn't your best quality you can see how this might be a dubious task! So after seeing all of those beautifully handmade pieces displayed before me, I too was on the hunt to find the "perfect one." That I did, my heart was set on a very unique wooden bowl with a small turquoise in-lay. I absolutely feel in love the smooth finish of the wood and the turquoise in-lay that made it a one of a kind for sure!
