I adore kitchen stuff. Le Crueset & Emile Henry are fabulous. But I have to tell you, that
my favorite is vintage pyrex. I'm sentimental to a fault. Really. ( I still wonder what my mom did
with my Mrs. Beasley doll !)
This simple set of bowls reminds me of my entire childhood.
Isn't that crazy ?
My mom is the best cook I have ever known. EVER. These were "the" bowls she used every day. We had salad with our dinner every night, and it was always served up in her Pyrex bowl. She had a different pattern, and still uses them to this day.

Do you know how many batches of brownie mix that I mixed in these ?
lots !
Do you know how many heartfelt stories these bowls have heard
while I was growing up and helping mom get dinner ready ?
lots ! I'm sure my tears have even fallen in these...
Every time I grab one of these, I am instantly transported to a Kitchen in California by the Sea !
I love the Yellow and Orange combo. They make me HAPPY!

What item reminds you of your entire childhood?

My husband has been wanting a boat for years. I finally said yes ! Our first weekend out on the water. Oh I can't tell you how different things look from the water !

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.

So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor.

Catch the trade winds in your sails.
