Some Vintage Items From Mama

These are some bowls that belonged to my Mama. I will forever remember them being filled to the brim with her homemade potato salad, boiled and fried new potatoes, chicken pastry, butter beans or corn. Maybe that is where I got my love for carbs... probably so.


I will mostly just display them in my kitchen, because it would be a rare occasion when I would make enough of any one food to fill one of those big bowls. But, Mama filed them up often.

This is her flour sifter.


These are the type of things I love to collect and display in our farm house, but knowing they belong to my Mama make them even more special.

Hello Debbie...what wonderful treasures you have from your mother. I don't have any bowls, but I do have my mother's rolling pin with the red handles.

Such a warm feeling for you to have kitchen type items from your mama. I took my bowls and such and display them like you have. You have a gorgeous yellow bowl. I hope you have a day filled with sunshine.

Hi Debbie, I love the big yellow bowls. My Mom always made her potato salad and served it in those bowls because those were the biggest bowls she had. Yum..it was good...Icould have a healthly serving right now! I am so glad you recieved such precious items that mean so much to you.
