Grandma's mixing bowls
On my last visit to my family, my sister walked into the door of my parents' house with this set of mixing bowls. My jaw dropped. I immediately recognized them as vintage Pyrex. She was getting rid of them because she never used them; they were my grandma's.
She was nice enough to give them to me even though I told her she could probably get a fairly good price for them, and indeed, the only set I could find was here, going for $140.
I am so pleased to have a set of bowls that belonged to my grandma, and I will enjoy using them every day. I'll be sure to keep them near her old copper kitchen timer, her recipe box, and her home ec cookbook so they feel at home.
