It is not dark chocolate that blows my skirt up, nor pictures of Ryan Reynolds, new high heels, the latest episode of Glee or Anne Taintor cards. It is not cake pops, “10 new pony tail ideas!”, cosmopolitans or chiweenies, yorkies and westies that make me giggly.
It is dishes — old and new, shiny or blue, even the ones that are glued back together anew.
Sadly, my latest finds came from the estate sale of someone’s great aunt Shirley Moore, but thankfully the woman didn’t throw away anything whether it was a box of cake mix from 1963 or four hand-painted maple syrup dispensers. More importantly, she kept all her vintage pyrex.
Five tropical juice glasses: perfect for small impromptu tiki parties, breakfast beverages and emergency shot glasses.
A milk glass spice jar set from Griffiths Laboratory in Chicago: complete with funky-smelling, aged remnants inside!
A pee-my-pants-cute jar grinder and sugar shaker.
A pyrex pie dish and a knock-off pyrex ivy-print bowl.
A blue pyrex refrigerator dish and a pyrex loaf dish. Boy howdy, I can’t wait to bake an Italian meatloaf and chocolate zucchini bread in this thing. Not at the same time…
