My favorite cafe au lait bowls for every day use

Ahhh, what's not to love about 'the' perfect cafe au lait bowl filled with fresh fruit on a beautiful holiday morning...

My good friend Carol found these French Pillivuyt bowls on Amazon here if you'd like some for yourself.
She was kind enough to gift these to me and I use them everyday to serve my fruit or oatmeal and sometime ice cream!  I've even once or twice sipped my morning latte from these feeling very European!

They are pracital, pretty and look wonderful stacked up with my treasured vintage ones!

Do you have a collection of cafe au lait bowls? Please let us know, we'd love to see them!

Hello Roberta... love your cafe au lait bowls, I have just one antique one that I bought from Lidy at French Garden House awhile back, I posted about it and how she makes her cafe au lait... love your peonies too! So pretty! I was just looking at your beautiful cottage today in "Waterfront Cottages" and dreaming about the sea... do you ever walk by the little "kind of haunted" house you once posted about? xoxo Julie Marie

Hi Roberta
Well recently I started using my small bowls again.. I just love small bowls for some reason and like you have been using them for yoghurt... although they aren't French!!! in fact I think they are chinese.. blue & white pattern... but I love these!!!!

Have a great week xxx Julie

Hi Roberta,
Your café au lait bowls are beautiful! I do have three vintage ones that I love & a couple new ones, but your Pillivuyt ones Carol gave you here are the most lovely new ones I've seen. I have a couple Pillivuyt plates left after a cupboard fiasco at our house where my bowls and ramekins were broken but we did have fun using them while they were around. Gosh, sorry to get off subject here! Have a great rest of your week & weekend, Roberta!

You are an amazing photographer -- I love this site.

I am an Internet idiot -- I must be missing the obvious. You said that we should contact you if we are interested in linen pillow cases but then I cannot find a way to contact you. Can you let me know how I can? Thanks so much!!
