Hidden Treasures....

Last weekend when this little place in the world was snow-covered and yucky, my mom and I spent a LOT of time putting stuff away into their basement storage at their new house. Anyway, I found one of my FAVORITE things from my grandma that has been in my parents' basement. They are mixing bowls that she used all the time. Nothing too fancy but I like the idea of using things that other people that are important to me used to use....like this for example. The green bowl was what she used to make "green salad" for holidays, which is marshmellows and pistachio pudding, etc. My dad remembered from when he was growing up that the yellow one was always for potato salad. I look forward to finding future distinctions for these pretty bowls.....any of you have any favorite things you use from your family?

oh.my.goodness. i LOVE those bowls! Throughout the years my mom has given me different white serving dishes with different patterns on the edges, so their all different but white so they match :) I have a square pedestal cake plate, a rectangle serving platter, and a divided serving dish for like dips and veggies (to name a few :)
