Here’s a little throw back for ya I just completed giving my kitchen a glass tile backsplash (click over to the spunky family journal for more on that), and so I decided a few new pretty glass storage containers were needed. Yes, “needed!” haha! I’ve been covering my cakes with a stainless mixing bowl, turned upside down, for as long as I can remember, and sometimes I need my bowl… as a bowl, for mixing! I’ve actually been searching for an old glass cake plate with a lid, but so far I haven’t found one, which is why last night I went and got a new one at Bed Bath and Beyond, for only $10. I think it looks retro though, and Zoe said, “It’s like Luke’s!” -that would be Luke’s diner, from our favorite show, The Gilmore Girls.
I guess the glass containers, circa 1970′s, were not so much of a need. Okay. But I found them at the thrift store, and I just had to have them. They have tomatoes and mushrooms on them, and I think my grandma had the same ones. Or was it my friend’s grandma? Anyway, Andy said his grandma had the glasses that came from the same line. Plus they’re my colors: orange and green; though I also use blue. What can I say, I’m crazy for color It’s all my area rug’s fault: orange, green and blue. But it’s too fun, I love it!
