How beautiful! I especially love the blue one and those Northern Lights. When I was a kid, we saw Northern Lights a lot. Now, it's a rare occasion.

Hi Ruth! Loved those painted bowls. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my beloved blog. Oh! Is that lamp in your header from the Denver Museum of Art? I posted on that lamp (or a drop dead replica) in December, after returning home from a trip to Denver. It's wild, isn't it? take care and have a great day. Susan
