34 dollar primitive dough bowl? Yes, please!

As I mentioned the other day, I am a proud owner of my very first primitive dough bowl (and certainly not my last.) When it arrived in the mail, hubs was confused as to why I was so excited for a scratched up, old bowl... I thought about explaining but figured somethings are better left unanswered, so I happily skipped away hugging my new puurty!

From Vintage Warehouse on Etsy for $34- compared to $$$ elsewhere

After admiring how rustic and used well loved the bowl was (& is), I got to thinking about where it's home should be and how I would style my empty bowl. Currently it is layered on our teeny-tiny "dining" table with a white porcelain bowl and some fillers from Marshall's but this is only temporary.

My dough bowl's temporary home

I have big plans for this baby! (Too much?) OK, well until I figure out what works best for us- my bowl and I, that is- here's some eye candy of inspiring ways to decorate with dough bowls.

What do you think, should I fill the bowl, if so with what? Would that pretty thing be best displayed on top of a bookshelf or filler-free on a coffee table? Maybe I should keep it as is, layered on my dining room table. Let me know, I know you all have great ideas.
