Filling Up The Hutch

Hello, Dear Ones!

Since I've been playing so long in my Pyrex and Fire King bowls 
I decided to poke them all in my little breakfast room hutch.

 I have lots of the clear glass ones but they aren't much to look at so I put in mostly the colored ones.
 Okie dokie pokie! 
My pink Gooseberry sits proudly on an old tea cloth embroidered by my grandmother.
She even crocheted around the edges.
 Then on the other side is my aqua Butterprint and a pretty blue Pyrex bowl.
 You've seen most of these pieces. The two on the left are my Meadow Green Fire King.
Sitting next to them are my two Jadeite bowls which are Fire King also.
Those bowls make me very happy and I'm on the lookout for one more at a reasonable price.
 Here are two little baby sized bowls.
The bottom one is Spring Blossom Green Pyrex ~ I do believe I like green.
The tiny bit of sunshine is a yellow Pyrex Cinderella bowl.

 I just had to poke in this darling vintage West Bend Penguin Hot and Cold server.

 Then...I have this 4 bowl set of Colonial Mist Pyrex. 
I know, I know they're clear glass but they do have a delicate pattern.
 I poked in some grapes so you could see the design.
I use these all the time.

 This most darling bowl gets used every day ~ it's my popcorn bowl. :)
This pattern is called Kitchen Aid by Fire King. 
Don't you just love it?

 Oh, these three have my heart also and I do use these every day too.
These are also Pyrex and I think the pattern is Checks and Cherries although I'm not really sure.
I bought these in 1987 when my son was working at Mervyns.

 Are you about to fall asleep? :)
Well, I'm topping off the top of my hutch with these two big bowls.
The blue one is Snowflake Blue and is Pyrex.
The brown one is called Woodland Brown and is also Pyrex.
The little tea towel is made from some olden vintage curtains.
 Well, I just have to poke in a few Roosters to call this complete.
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ this song doesn't fit my post today but I just love it! ;)


Hush little baby, don't say a word
Pappa's gonna buy you a mockingbird

If that mockingbird don't sing
Pappa's gonna buy you a diamond ring

If that diamond ring turns brass
Pappa's gonna buy you a lookin' glass

If that lookin' glass gets broke
Pappa's gonna buy you billy goat

If that billy goat don't pull
Pappa's gonna buy you a cart and bull

If that cart and bull turns over
Pappa's gonna buy you a doggie named Rover

If that dog named Rover don't bark
Pappa's gonna buy you a horse and cart

If that horse and cart fall down
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town
~ sung by Peter, Paul and Mary

    Love this sweet hutch but I especially love the reds!! You know me and red in a Kitchen!!


  23. I love every bit of this post. I had the three piece pink set, many a long year ago. Alas...I used them every day and of course...they are gone now.:-(

  24. You are just fabulous! I love them all together. I had the green blossom set as a new bride!

  25. Shelia,
    Adorable collection of Pyrex, dear friend!!!
    I have to agree with the Jadite bowls. . .they would be my favorite, also!!!
    Thanks for sharing!!!

  26. You certainly have a wonderful, wonderful collection going on there. Just love all your pieces! xo Diana

  27. They look awfully pretty there, Shelia! And a bonus rooster or two!

  28. Your Pyrex collection is so cute on your hutch, Sheila! :D I like the pink ones and the kitchen towel!


  29. I love your popcorn bowl best! And the old cookbook tucked in among the dishes! Very nice! Enjoy your evening my friend!

  30. Shelia, this is the cutest collection! I have or had some of these. You've got some great ones...what a wonderful collection! I love them all gathered together here on your hutch! Isn't it wonderful when something we love can be useful AND ornamental. Best of both worlds!

  31. What a beautiful and sweet collection!!! I love them all!! And, you hutch is so cute!! Have a great day! xo Heather

  32. Charming, sweet and fun! Love it all!


  33. What an amazing collection! Your hutch is the perfect showcase.

  34. Shelia,I so love your beautiful pyrex. I saw a lovely piece today and never had enough cash on me,as we were out walking but did have enough to buy 3 more blue willow dinner plates I have been looking for. How on earth do you keep your pyrex so clean. I soak mine in Nappy San but still can't get some of the brown marks off.

  35. Love your painted hutch...and all the pretties in it. I had a ice bucket just like that when Mr. Sweet and I were young...where the heck is it???....probably sold in one of my many garage sales...:((

  36. Good Sunday morning Shelia,I bet you are off and running in your sweet new RV. I am loving your Fire King display so much. I bet you use them too. Your hutch is the perfect place to display your awesome collection.

    Hope you are having fun with your hubby's 'new toy.' BIG smile here.
    Love, Jeanne

  37. Hi Shelia,

    I love everything on your darling breakfast room hutch!! The embroidered tea cloth and towel made from vintage curtains are wonderful. All your pyrex is so pretty, and you have a great variety. The Kitchen Aid Fire King popcorn bowl really caught my eye. What a neat pattern! I also love your little pink and blue glass hen dishes. I have a pink glass rabbit dish made in the same style. My MIL has the Butterprint Pyrex bowls, and she inherited those from her mother.

    I was wondering, since your pyrex has patterns on it, do you put it in the dishwasher? Thanks for sharing, Shelia. Visiting from Seasonal Sundays; I hope you're having a wonderful day!



  38. I love pyrex and all of mine is clear glass...I need to add some colored pieces. I think the way you have the pieces stacked is so fun. Thank you for sharing!

  39. Ok, I am seriously drooling! I love the cherry pieces! And, I've never seen the Colonial mist! You have a great collection! And your hutch is cute, too!

  40. Love the checks and cherries pyrex! What a great collection and your hutch looks so cute!

  41. Your FireKing ware is exquisite! LOVE that white bowl with the red print...my fav of your collection!

  42. I finally had to figure it out that I could no longer click on your name and go right to your blog..I had to go to my reading list on my sidebar and come in the back door. You know what I mean. :)
    I love your little hutch filled with all sorts of 40's things. So cute, Shelia!
    Thank you for stopping by. I can tell you are in a visiting mode. It's easy to get behind isn't it? I am SO far behind it's pathetic!
    It was nice to see you!! Seems a do a lot of remembering now days. Age? For me, I suppose it is.

  43. Very pretty. I have a few of these as well and I love them.

  44. What a great collection! The hutch looks so cute with all of these on display...that checks and cherries is something ( I have never seen them before...adorable! )

  45. Beautiful collection! I see you have the same penguin ice bucket my parents had - too funny. I always thought it was cute, but didn't ask for it when they moved from our family home. Thanks for you sweet comment on DD2's bedroom.


  46. I love all these -especially the cherries! I've been trying to think of way to "summerize" my china cabinet b/c it's dark wood, I may try a few white dishes in there. Have a great week :)

  47. You've got quite a collection of those pyrex bowls! Your hutch is a great place to display them too. It's fun to see the different colors and patterns that were popular back then.

  48. You have a great collection and it looks so pretty displayed together in the hutch! I also want to tell you I enjoyed seeing the photos of your little Carter, she is so adorable!

    I just posted my shoe purchase from the shopping spree with my friends if you would like to come back and see them! (Smile)


  49. What a gorgeous collection you have! Love that the roosters are included in your hutch! Very pretty!

  50. You know how much we love your Pyrex! I only have one piece of pink and wish I had more like you. I need to be on the look out for them. Lovely pictures!

  51. Oh wow,you really do have a fabulous collection. I use to have a couple of those pieces, wonder what I did with them. This looks fabulous. Thanks for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  52. Great collection. Do you use them in the microwave and dishwasher?

  53. I so enjoyed your little white hutch tour, Shelia! You have some beautiful pieces, and the best part is that you use them -- I love that!

  54. I'm dropping in by way of Sunny Simple Monday and I'm your newest follower. I love Pyrex too, you have some real nice pieces!!

  55. I love Pyrex so your hutch caught my eye! Love your collection. Colored Pyrex is my favorite, but I also really like the clear Colonial Mist!!!

  57. Your hutch is a beautiful color. The Pyrex--all the beautiful colors--is the perfect complement. I'm a new follower on Bloglovin'

  58. I love your bowl collection and many of them look familiar to me. The silver penguin bowl is like one my mother had. It's fun to see all the sweet patterns these companies made over the years. Quite a variety! They look great in your green cabinet.

  59. Oh my goodness Shelia you sure have a collection of Pyrex! I've never seen the clear ones before...they are adorable! Also the cherry and check ones!

  60. Had to come back to thank you for sharing at Amaze Me Monday!!!

    You have them displayed so beautifully.
    The cherries are my favs!
