|A few weeks ago I visited a newly opened store that sells some new and used (mostly) items. I met the owner at the hardware store where I work. Steven told me that his store had just opened and I didn't even know he had one. He told me where it was so I ventured in one day. I love old stuff and saw these two items I couldn't leave without.|
|We aren't certain what the jar was used for. It didn't have a lid. There was a smaller version in pint size. I got the bigger one since it called to me. Not sure why there is a blank front. Possibly for a label. But for what? Pickles, mayonnaise, candy, tomato or spaghetti sauce, olives, pickled eggs? I need to research it sometime. Anybody care to take a guess? The Pyrex mixing bowl is so retro that I needed it in my collection of non plastic bowls. Was going to give it away but decided it could nest nicely into other bowls I have. I used it the other day to mash up some bananas for .....banana bread that I made Sunday evening. I feel the need to get rid of Tupperware bowls. Glass and pottery are much nicer.|
|Looking down inside the jar. A different view indeed. I know I should be downsizing but there are times when it's just fun to look at items from the past and some are useful enough to bring home with me. Today I decided to purchase a DVD set of Mary Poppins. It's an older movie but a classic that both my husband and I remember. I want our grandchildren to see it and enjoy it as well. Good story and music and dancing! Life before computers, cell phones and even television and microwave ovens. Oh.my.goodness! |
God bless America! May our red, white and blue flag wave in our land forever. Land of the free and the home of the brave. Don't tread on US!
