The Vintage Table...Ready...Set...Swoon!


 if you can look at this collection of gorgeous china
without drooling...undaintily...just a wee bit...
then you are a much better man than i!!!!!!! ;}



wow!



and i must place the blame for this outright assault on
my "daintiness" squarely at the feet of ALISON HENLEY !



 

she is the proprietress of the
WORLD EMPORIUM OF AMAZING CHINA!!!
also know as THE VINTAGE TABLE!




 after years of hunting and collecting ALL...and i mean ALL
of the most fabulous vintage china from the four corners of the
earth {and thus keeping it out of my greedy mits! which i
suppose i must thank her for, otherwise i'd be living in a cardboard box! ;}




 alison created her vintage-for-hire- company appropriately called
which provides heartstoppingly beautiful vintage
china for weddings, high teas and all manner of events.






 and although you may never have the need for her services
please...do yourself a favor and visit THE VINTAGE TABLE
if for nothing else than to look at each and every dreamy picture
and take a beautiful trip through a vintage wonderland!




and don't miss one single post on THE VINTAGE TABLE BLOG
where alison's not only serves up more yummy shots of her
lovely dishes...but she also has recipes for even yummier
dishes to top her dishes! what? i know...i got a tad carried away there! ;}
sorry, it must be because i was mentally rhapsodizing about her





so if you are in the mood to gaze upon some 
vintage goodness...pop on over to
and careful! 
drooling inevitable! ;}

Who Wants To Lick The Bowl?


       

PYREX bowls...
they came in many colors...
as a matter of fact, apparently there was a set of several colors!
ours must have all broken before i was born, since i only have a memory of 
THE BIG YELLOW bowl.
the BIG YELLOW BOWL was the home to popcorn and cookie dough...
and the sweetest words a kid could ever hear were,
"who wants to like the bowl?"
do you have PYREX bowl memories?
