Thrifted and Inherited Dishes & Vintage Bliss Tuesdays Linky Party #98

I am always on the lookout for pretty small bowls. They are great for eating decadent yet healthy peanut butter "nice" cream or this peachy dessert parfait. And, as I've said before, a petite bowl makes photographing food easier. (Fits in the camera frame better and requires less food).

Recently I found two of these pretty pink and yellow floral bowls at the thrift store. They'll be great not only for pictures, but for snacking on my fave raisin cereal in the evening too. They say yingzhouzhengdong on the bottom. I attempted to do some research, but even when Google translates the page from Chinese I can't really get a meaningful idea of what it says.

My mom recently gave me these cool vintage hospital serving dishes. She used to use the same kind of cream and sugar sets as a nurse. (And no, she didn't steal these from a hospital. She bought them at a garage sale. I asked.) When I see them, I imagine a time when hospital food was a little more sophisticated, but I could very well be wrong about that!

Let's see your vintage, thrifted and inherited treasures. Please join up to the party below and visit some of the others who share their treasures as well!

  3. Hi Joann I was always wondering where the covered teapot/creamer/sugar sets came from. Thanks, and thanks too for Vintage Bliss 98.

  4. Thank you for the party. I loved hearing about the covered cream & sugar set. I didn't know they were from places like a hospital.
