A small pyrex bowl, in excellent condition. I think the pattern is called Amish. Besides the Forest Fancies, this is the only other pattern I have and look out for. And a pristine Melmac divided bowl, which I was equally pumped to find.
There was a small article about Melmac in the latest edition of Atomic Ranch. I was just reading it and admiring the styling of Melmac pieces and then found this bowl in the thrift store later that week. This bowl was made in Toronto by Maplex. As I was researching it I came across this blog all about Melmac. There are aficionados for everything! Its great reading.
I only spend $2.50 for both, as they were half price.
And for the news...I may be resurrecting this blog, as I'll have lots of new (and old!) things to blog about. Hus and I will be moving to a new city (a city! with an international airport, culture, amenities, and lots and lots of thrift and consignment stores), in a new province, and I will be returning to school (at age 40!) to transition to a new career. But most exciting of all, for the purposes of this blog, we bought a 1959 mid-century modest home, which has many of its original features. So my turquoise bowls will fit right in!
