Old glass

It's still raining ... the dams here are predicted to overflow by Monday. I will be taking some time this weekend to get some vintage in my kitchen. If you read my blog you'll know I'm a vintage glassware admirer. Pyrex, Fire King all the old glassware from a time when women did their hair to do the dishes. I relish the ornaments from that era, not so much the societal values.

I am working on getting a wall like this in our kitchen ... just slowly chipping away.

These are some of my vintage glass favourites.

Pink glass cake stand my Mum gave me ... with a kick-arse 'fluffy frosted' syrup cake.

Fruit bow that sits in my Mum's kitchen window (complete with ceramic green frog).

A stacker of beautiful ramekins from my Mum ... good for ice cream.

Just as well I don't know where you live, or I'd be over nicking some of that fabulous Pyrex.

That is an awesome Pyrex collection - thanks for finding and showing it to us! I have a mixing bowl that matches the casserole dish on the second shelf, on the left (the white one with the red birds on it). I love it!
