Hi friends, the last little while I have been having a bowl fetish. My question is, how does one decide whether or not it is a collection or an addiction?
After all, to collect one must add, right?
A couple years ago a friend picked up this Pyrex bowl for me at a yard sale. She knew that I would love the turquoise color.
She was right, I loved it; but at the time I had no thoughts of collecting more.
But then I happened across the large one that matched. How could I pass it up? Next came the mini casserole. I recently found out from a blog friend, Erica from Golden Egg Vintage that the pattern is called ‘Butter Print’. I had no idea. The small bowl on top is Fire King and not Pyrex. I had never heard of Fire King until I started blogging. I bought it at a thrift store in Oregon. Didn’t realize it was Fire King until I got home. Just liked the color and graphics. I use these for every day use.
Now I couldn’t stop there, could I? How could I resist the cute colors of this set? My friends, Aunt Bunny sold the set of 3 to me for $15. The bottom bowl is not Pyrex, but it is old. I paid $15 for it at an estate sale. Again, loved the color. A couple of the bowls sit on vintage saucers that once belonged to hubbies grandmother, Tula. Don’t you love that name?
Enough already? Ha, ha what do you think? I have no pink in my kitchen what so ever. But oh these are so cute for Spring!
Found out that this pattern is called, ‘Gooseberry’.
One always needs a stripe to go with a pattern, right?
I have come to the conclusion that if I happen upon anymore pink Pyrex that I could pass it up. Turquoise is a different story.
Now these aren’t bowls, but how cute are these fridgies?
My favorite, of course are the turquoise and red. My kitchen and family room colors are red, turquoise, and green.
But won’t these earth tones be cute for Fall? Notice that I do use them? The orange one has crushed pineapple in it.
Well there you have it, my newest
I have to tell you that at the filming of this collection some items were
damaged destroyed. When pulling out my pink Pyrex bowls from a lower cabinet, and not wanting to get down on my still recovering knee, I accidently made other dishes fall out.
I broke an old bowl with a cute veggie scene on it, two plates to match and two poppy bowls. The poppy bowls are not old, but so cute with my poppy dishes.
I wanted to spat my butt and put me in time out. lol!
Darn, collateral damage is the pits! They were not savable and had to be trashed.
Hope you are more careful than this bull in a china cupboard!
