Vintage Fire King Tulips Splash Proof Bowl - Recycling A Broken Bowl

I shaped this shard from a large vintage Fire King mixing bowl given to me by a fellow collector. It was a beautiful bowl before it ended up broken.  The paint is so vibrant.  I finished this shard into an ornament. So happy to see it completed--it will be going to another collector.

Pyrex Pink Stripes

This set of bowls was the only mixing bowl set I longed for in my collection.  I pretty much have stuck to getting my Pyrex from thrift stores and trades. I thrifted the second (402) bowl, traded for a small (401) bowl and tried for over a year to get a 403 bowl.  I gave up and traded away the two I had. After taking a break from trading for a while, I have been able to get some of the harder to come by pink pieces.  These pieces have come easily one after another.  Here is the minty set of pink stripe bowls I received last week.

Finally a Sunny Day! - Vintage in my Kitchen

I love my kitchen even more when there is sun!  I took a picture as we finally had a sunny day today.  I love these little pieces of kitsch I found at the the thrifts.  Sweet Lefton Bluebird egg cups and Goebel salt/pepper/condiment set are part of my kitchen collection..

Pyrex Saxony

I've been extremely busy and haven't had time to post, but I received this Pyrex Saxony dish in a trade from a fellow collector and I just have to post it. My Pyrex collection is small these days, but this has been on my wishlist for years.
