On a Mission

Once or twice I've been called an over-achiever... Christie.  However, what people fail to realize about me is that it's really just my obsessive nature that won't allow me to stop until a task is complete.  :)  For almost a year I've been on the hunt for a dough bowl.  Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like.  A big antique wooden bowl used for kneading bread dough.  No, I'm not a baker or a Quaker so why do I want one you ask... Well, I'm just obsessed.  I love the way they look and feel.  They are beautiful and once upon a time, someone used it daily to feed their family.  Mother's may have taught their daughter's the art.  Grandmother's shared this time honored.... are you buying this?  Ok, well I just think they are really stinkin' neat.  The problem comes in finding the size I want with a price tag I can swallow.  Keep reading my blog, you'll see the trend.  I'm cheap.  Earlier today I checked the website for one of my favorite auctions and they had posted a preview of tonight's hoopla.   That's right, a dough bowl.. For Christmas this year, my brother gave me a bit of cash and instructions "BUY THE BOWL". 

So tonight, I hope to do just that!  I can't wait and I'm probably getting way too excited, but I just can't help it.  I'll let you know how it goes! :)
