Retro Tuesday, visions of aqua!

>> Tuesday, January 26, 2010

While reading The Crazy Suburban Mom's blog this morning I came across an awesome post on vintage kitchen appliances, pyrex and aqua- couldn't make me a happier girl! As I briefly mentioned in my post Thanks, Mommy! I collect vintage Blue Heaven dishes. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE old pyrex. Another great goody given to me by my mom was my grandmother's old pyrex mini loaf pans in- you guess it- aqua! They match my dishes perfectly and are so fun to bake in!

ps- if you head over to The Crazy Suburban Mom, check out the aqua stove. I want me one of those bad boys!

Oh! Almost forgot about my nifty vintage canisters- found these on eBay for $10!

Aqua seems to be popular again. I have some turquoise or aqua Pyrex that I got when it was new and bought a Pyrex pie plate in that color at an antique show.

I can't believe you got those canisters for $10! They're amazing! Love your dishes too, and I never knew the name of that pattern. Now I want to see your kitchen!
Happy VTT!

I remember those atomic dishes. Your blue pyrex are actually refrigerator dishes, used back before plastic. Love those canisters.

Oh you know, Bea, now that you say it, my mother DID tell me that they could go in the fridge, thus the lids I guess, huh? LOL! Thanks!
