    Hi my name is Judy, I live in Tennessee.
    My husband and I finally have an empty nest and we are doing some remodleing, trying to do on a budget, I have been so pinspired! and have been doing all kinds of projects to save money.
    I loved these bowls, would love to try to make them.

    We are in town for three days for convention and LOVE the cantaloupe bowls. Do you have these in stock and how much are they? Would love to come out and see if we can’t pick up a set.
