Today we’re traveling back to our childhood, what did the dishes you ate off of everyday look like? Did you have a favorite cup or plate? Did your mother have fancy dishes for company? Tell us all about those special dishes while you travel back in time!

My mama had those pyrex or corningware dishes that scream the 70s when I was growning up.  You know the ones, white with brown flowers around the edges…

I was told they were so strong they were on the tip of the space shuttle.  You know you CAN break one of those plates when you drop them in just the right way on the floor?  Not too reassuring for NASA.  We even had brown glasses to drink out of.


We had nicer dishes too, but they stayed in the china cabinet… reserved for very special occasions.

Horaayy..there are 10 comment(s) for me so far ;)


I wish I could remember…

I have an award for you on my blog.

Yes, scary for NASA! :0

When I was getting married, we registered for heavy glass goblets by Mikasa that were the EXACT same color of amber as the ones in your picture! Nope, I don’t have them any more…they went the way of the yard sale MANY moons ago, haha! 😀

How funny that you would post this today and I had no clue and went off about my bunny plate. LOL :^D

My WordPress template is called Bytes For All. I love it because it’s so very customizable and it’s “stretchy” as in it adjusts to whatever size screen resolution a reader has.

We ate off of Corelle dishes with the little green flowers. My Mom still has them, but won’t give them up to me yet! Maybe she’ll leave them in the will to me! 😀
