It's time for Throwback Thursday! If you want to play along feel free to use the badge and please link back to Seaside Simplicity to help spread the word. Come join us, the linky will be open until Midnight on Sunday. No rules just fun!
Who remembers the kitchen from your childhood? Did it look something like one of these? Closest to the one we had is the one in the middle, but the color shown is a little off. Ours was all turquoise, both cabinets and appliances.
My mother cooking in our turquoise kitchen back in the early 60s.
How about these primary Pyrex bowls, do you remember if your mother had a set of them, or maybe your grandmothers? Look at that price - crazy!
I remember my mother being so upset when she broke the green one. I think she must have gotten rid of the rest of the set after that. I remember my grandmother having them too. She always served spaghetti and meatballs when we went over for dinner. It was always, without fail, served in the big yellow bowl.
I love Pyrex spotting when I watch movies or TV, they use them on sets all the time. My hubby thinks I'm a little weird shouting out Pyrex when I spot one :D
None of the originals from my family survived but I have managed to collect two sets over the years, picking them up one bowl at a time at thrift stores and yard sales. I keep one set for display and use the other set.
Collecting the Pyrex primary bowls led me to collecting other kitchenware from back in those days. I collect the mid century Blue Heaven kitchenware by Royal China shown below (the pink one in between is Pyrex).
I have collected a set of six vintage pink milk glass Fire King mugs.
I have also collected several McCoy pieces with the pink and turquoise band along with pink and turquoise Melmac and other pink and turquoise kitchen odds and ends. I just think they are fun!
