Vintage Thingies Thursday 3/19
It's time for Vintage Thingies Thursday! Be sure to pay Suzanne, THE COLORADO LADY, a visit. See who else is going vintage!
How I love Red! Below you will see one of my very favorite treasures. I know, I know. It looks rather unassuming but if a bowl could talk, what stories it could tell. Like when momma would make her tortillas and put little dough balls aside for me to roll out. Oh! Or when momma decided to snap her own beans and set some in this bowl for me to snap...boy I felt so helpful! I know! When momma would make pudding in this bowl and set it inside the fridge. She would even let me lick the mixers. This precious bowl is but one of a nesting set of four. They came in primary colors (listed by order of greatest size) yellow, green, red, and blue. I have this red one and the blue one (which is another of my favorite cereal bowls). My mother dropped the yellow one and we lost the green one just a few months ago when we had our last sizable quake. I've been perusing garage sales & thrift stores so that I may replace what has been broken, but I've had no luck. I've seen them on Ebay, but the cost sure runs up and then adding the shipping and it's gone beyond my "milk money".
Did you know Pyrex has a rather interesting history? If you'd like to know more about it's origins, click here.
Thanks for spending some of your time with me. I hope the rest of your day is FABULOUS!
