I love the stacking mugs and want one of each cheerful color they come in. I think it was Hyena in Petticoats who had a set of four with oranges on them--but she is in Australia and the shipping would have been very painful. Let me just say that this collection is kind of by mistake--I purchased a few pieces and then started finding more and more. My rule is to only buy pretty good condition and very cheap--$4 is about my limit. Of course there are some exceptions: the yellow bowl above is chipped but I just paid a dollar.
I have several more of the turquoise with folk images on them. I think they must have been reissued, but I still like them. I have one more smaller of the set in the middle and they are from Pyrex, England--So I think I paid $12 for the set--only one lid though.
That big gold one I paid $10 for and totally regret it, I just don't like it as well as the others but it was 1/2 off so I was beguiled into thinking I liked it for only the low, low price of $10! I am searching for lids for the little brown ones--I have seen them on other blogs and am totally jealous. Also, I got the orange and brown divided dish recently because I liked the design but I cannot for the life of me figure out what to cook in it. The custard dishes also make good dessert dishes.
The small stack of bowls I actually have 10 of--we use them for ice cream dishes in a vain attempt to rein in the serving size. The rooster mug is not a brand name but I like the design. The big bowl made for a very exciting day at the thrift store for me. The little red one is pretty old I think--I really wish I had glass fronted cupboards in my kitchen to show all these pretty things off. My daughter gets so annoyed when I rearrange the cupboards to fit one more thing in. It is like a jigsaw puzzle and her job is to empty the dishwasher!
The snowflake and sugar dish have gold on them ( hard to see in the pic). The yellow bowl I got today!
That top one I got today--very nice. Still has crusted baking stains on it but I like the design and it is one of the older ones I think. The bottom one had a lid so I just bought it without looking at it and it has a chip that makes me a little sad. I have several small handled bowls with glass lids--more modern but I like to use them instead of plastic for leftovers.
So, there is my collection--I am showing you this because Chickenfoot is going to be showing you her collections on her blog so I thought I would join in.
