For this week's Vintage Thingies Thursday, I would like to show you my weakness: vintage bowls. I have a nice collection and actually use most of them. The one shown above is my favorite. The photo doesn't do it justice, it is actually a butter yellow color. I don't use this one, it just sits there and looks pretty.
This one holds some of my vintage utensils that belonged to my grandma. You can also see a little bit of a covered casserole dish, not vintage, but still cute.
Two more, sitting on a tea spoon holder, embroidered by my grandma. To the right is a glimpse of the largest of a set of four brown vintage mixing bowls, glazed in various shades of brown. Oh yeah, and a spider plant to the left that isn't happy with dry indoor air and the lack of sunlight.
And! an update on my "new" sewing machine. I found the manual online. The manual is for the treadle model that is built the same as my electric machine. So, at least I can see the oiling points and basic instructions.
I need the manual to figure out how to use the extra presser feet that the technician found for me. I was really excited about these since my machine did not have any accessories with it when I bought it!
The largest one in the back is a ruffler. Very intriguing and a bit intimidating.
