Season of Green

I'm joining Chari for Sunday Favorites at Happy To Design
Seasonal Sunday at The Tablescaper
Masterpiece Monday at Boogieboard Cottage
with this post from March 2010
*****************
It seems fitting for St. Patrick's Day coming up in just a few days that I share
some of my vintage American made mixing bowls from the 30s and 40s.
I used to have all my mixing bowls on display in a large pine cabinet before
we moved to this house 3 years ago.  Now I rotate them in and out of
display situations as the mood strikes me.

Here are some of my favorite green bowls, with a nod to St. Patrick and the wearing of the green. This is an old printers' cabinet that I've had for decades. The little drawers held the typeset letters.








In the late afternoon the sun catches the bowls and makes them shine.



Thanks so much for coming by today!

  25. Candy .. I am a new follower you are such an inspiration to me w/ your table settings. I just love your blog. Your cabinet is wonderful but your bowls are out of this world. I love the pitcher.. I think my grandmother had one like in in a yellowish glaze. Green is my favorite color .. love it. Hope you stop by to see me sometime.
