My Jadeite cups and saucers arrived today! Wow, fast! They are Fire King in the "Alice" floral pattern. I will tell you more about the frilly orange piece below...These cups are very light and delicate, it's amazing how well they've lasted through the years.
Hubby prepared us a nice lunch of crispy smoky bacon with a fried egg and some cottage cheese with peaches and a few Maraschino cherries. Yum!
Tonight we'll just have some fresh fruit or vegetables. :-)
This is my maternal grandmother's special Carnival glass bowl. She would make potato salad and heap in into this bowl, and cut a hard boiled egg into shapes and make a flower on top. :-) I am very lucky to have this bowl as my Aunt Eva had it and there were many nieces that would have liked to have it, and my cousin Glenda had it and sent it to me. Isn't that sweet? Glenda told me that Aunt Eva had promised that bowl to a lot of people. :-)
Carnival glass has this wonderful iridescent sheen on the outside.
Here is the colorful back.
With the light shining through.
Here is a vintage Depression glass Vaseline glass measuring cup I have. If you put it under a black light they glow amazingly in a neon green.
Do you have any family pieces that you treasure? I hope you're having a good weekend. We're having a very easy day and then have been invited to a roast turkey dinner at our youngest son's house tomorrow. Our DIL Kristi called Dayle this morning for some turkey roasting advice. Fun! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
