 Does anyone besides me remember these bowls?  If you will notice the background...almost every inch is filled with something.

That large yellow one - I still have my grandmother's one like that. It is fantastic when mixing up a big fruit cake mix :)

I vaguely remember a set of bowls like that when I was a kid.

Yes, and I loved them. Now I have cheapo Walmart plastic mixing bowls. I see those crocks on the lower shelf. I LOVE crocks and collected them for a while. I left mine in Indiana for my daughter to sell. Her life revolves around FB Marketplace now. She is collecting her inheritance.

Yes, and I have more than two sets of them that we still use regularly! I have my set, my Mom's set, and a friend's few bowls that she was going to give away. They are so perfect for so many things!

Not sure if those are the same as the big mixing-bowl that my mother had. It had a flat surface on one side so the bowl could be rested at an angle for vigorous stirring with a wooden spoon. I love looking around that kind of shop.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Oh yes! I do remember those bowls.There was a time in my life I thought that if I could use bowls like that, i would have arrived.

My mom and all her friends had these bowls. She would fill the big yellow bowl full of potato salad on holidays.

I remember them! My mother had a set for the longest time. I love the bright colors. I would love to look around in this store!

our affluence amazes me. precious home and kitchen goods were handed from mother to daughter or grandmother to granddaughter, not as cherished antiques, but as work-a-day utensils that no one had the cash to buy. today they are dumped at garage sales for quarters or a dollar, more to get rid of them than to raise cash.

We have two different sets of them. My late wife liked the green and yellow combo and my wife had the set showing in the photo. We blended most of them but don't have all of them anymore.

Yes, I remember them from my childhood. Thank you for the memories!

Now those are very interesting bowls! Love the color and how it's stacked perfectly inside one another.

Those bowls are cool - Yes, I remember them! They kind of look vintage, don't they?
