Vegan Bowl!

I adore dishes ... almost as much as the food that goes into them. I collect funky, mismatched plates, mugs, glasses and bowls from thrift stores and yard sales. I don't think I own any matching sets, nor do I desire a boring set. I prefer each dish to stand on its own. But I wouldn't mind of a colorful set of this handmade vegan pottery from VeganDish on Etsy.

For ages (or at least what feels like ages), I've been coveting VeganDish's stamped cereal bowls, serving dishes, and mugs. Each piece proudly proclaims it's vegan-ness to the world. I finally broke down a few weeks ago and ordered my first piece — this adorable cereal bowl:

In this picture, the handmade pottery serves as a vessel for my Peace Vanilla Almond Cereal. I added the dried strawberries and So Delicious coconut milk. VeganDish's work is not cheap, and honestly this bowl was the largest one I could afford. Bowls range from $16 (dip size) to $48 (serving dish). My cereal bowl was $20, but shipping was nearly $10.

It really is the perfect size for a single serving of cereal. It was also the perfect size for these fresh local strawberries served with Ciao Bella Coconut Sorbet. Yum!

VeganDish also sells mugs and the cutest cake stands (and tiny single cupcake stands) you've ever seen! Though I'm not typically fond of sets, I'd really love one of each piece (Are you reading this, Papa and Mama Crunk? Think birthday ... or Christmas ... or both!). If y'all want to see more of VeganDish's one-of-a-kind pottery, click here for the Etsy site. You can also find a few VeganDish pieces on Cosmos Vegan Shoppe.
