Of course that's the solution. The matchstick in the top right was moved to the bottom left, and the horizontal matchstick was shifted to the left a little.

how about the simpler way to just move the bottom two to the top so that the handle is above the dust?

the dust is still on the shovel in that case =P

and rookie1ja's answer isn't cheating. he left the top left and bottom matchsticks in the same places, shifted the middle one to the left, and moved the top right one to the bottom left.

Its easy move the center stick to the right so that the current right match stick becomes the stem. Move the original left match stick to the bottom parallel to the original stem. The bowl would be inverted. The dust will to the top left of the new stem.
