Summertime Look for the Hoosier Cabinet

Summertime, fruits, vegetables are so good from the garden
I keep most things there on the Hoosier as you come in the back door.
So I thought why not put the tomato's in a my Mom's Pyrex bowl?

They have been tucked away for sometime not used.
I am glad I kept them.
Memories of potato salad, hard boil eggs, onions and cucumbers in oil and vinegar, 
being served in them.

I decided to show them off
3 different sizes, 3 different colors

I was not into collecting Pyrex at the time, and I had 2 sets of my own.
But having a stranger make something in them, was not something I wanted,
 so yes they came home with me.

A little piece of sunshine from my Mom


I thought they were a wedding present, but a pyrex expert told me no.
So they are not from 67 years ago today
My Mom and Dad were married today
August 10, 1947
Thanks for always being the sunshine in my life
how could not help it, look at those smiles


for those of you who enjoy some family history

Sometimes my computer just doesn't cooperate. Been trying to post a comment for 2 days, lol.

Love this post. I think you mother would be so happy that you were using her beloved Pyrex. The vintage photos are just amazing, how great that you have them. What an adorable couple they were. Lucky you Ann, your family treasures special memories and moments.

Ann,
How precious to have such amazing photos of the love shared between your parents on their Wedding Day!!!
My family didn't take many photos. . .guess that's why I usually have my "camera in hand" at our gatherings and daily happenings!!!
Thanks for sharing!
A lovely tribute to your Mom & Dad, dear friend!!!
Fondly,
Pat
