Teresa posted some pictures of a carnival glass dish today, so I wanted to show her (and y’all) a few pieces that I have. I have several more pieces, but they’ve been put away. I’m pretty sure they’re in a box in the attic. Go check out Teresa’s bowl after you’re done here if you haven’t all ready. I wish I had a fun family memory to connect with these, but I got them all on eBay. Maybe my boys will have a memory of me and these dishes one of these days. I need to remember to use them!
This light green one is my favorite, although I’m not even sure that it’s “real” carnival glass. I love the color and the legs and the design in it.
See the roses inside the bowl?
I’ve always thought the blueish-purple ones are kind of gaudy, but I still like them for some reason. This is a candy dish sitting inside a separate dish. They don’t really go together, but I think they look perfect like this.
And the glossy insides.
I couldn’t find my favorite big bowl. I know I didn’t pack it away because it’s the one piece that I use the most. Maybe The Captain will know where it is when he gets home. We recently moved a bunch of this stuff out of the china hutch because we moved it and I plan to give the hutch to my son when they move to a bigger place that can accommodate it.
Today is the start of the NASCAR season with the Daytona 500. My arse will be planted in my chair watching it. And then the Academy Awards will be on. I may have to switch back and forth towards the end of the race to see some of the arrivals if the race goes long. Those are my plans for the day.
I have been fighting the SUGAR DEMONS the last couple of days. I hope they don’t show up today! I really hate it when all I can think about is getting my hands on something sweet. There is nothing sweet here (except some baking stuff), thank goodness. Otherwise, I would have eaten it in a BIG OLD SUGAR FRENZY and then felt guilty and horrible when it was over and I regained consciousness. I’ve lost 17 lbs as of today, and I don’t plan on blowing it now!
STAY STRONG, PAMMY SUE!
