the perfect piece: blue pumpkin dish

For a moment I was a little perplexed about what I might serve in this serving piece, but then I brushed that silly worry off. Mere details. Plus, though the glaze is food safe, to put anything in it would be to cover up that beautiful watery blue. I crushed on this bowl as soon as I saw it, but fell in love when I discovered that it is cast from an actual pumpkin!
