Cinderella, Cinderella, All I Hear is Cinderella

Hello, Dear Ones.
My Pyrex collection seems to be growing a little so I thought I would show you.
I found these two lovelies a while back. I love this pattern ~ Butterprint ~ it's just one of my favorites. Some even call it Amish Butterprint. The pattern has a little farmer couple, their crops and of course a Rooster along the sides.
 So far all I've found is the aqua or is it turquoise? and white color. This is a little Cinderella bowl ~ a little handle to hold on one side of the bowl and a little pouring spout on the other side. Or maybe you could say ~ a handle on both sides! Why are they called Cinderella Bowls you ask? Sit on down, grab your Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper and I'll tell you a little story and you know how I love to tell you little stories...
 Oh, this is my largest Cinderella bowl. Ain't she purdy?
Now...once upon a time...
Why name Pyrex mixing bowls after Cinderella? 
"Cinderella bowl" is a well-known term for the type of nesting bowl with a handle on one side and a spout on the other.  The name has become a convenient way to differentiate it from the older style of nesting bowl with a completely round circumference.  Cinderella bowls first appeared in 1957 with three pattern & colour choices: turquoise Butterprint, pink Gooseberry, yellow & black Gooseberry.  Sandalwood became the next pattern to appear on Cinderella bowls, in 1961.  The shape of the bowls was designed by John Phillip Johnson.     source
 Here I have two mixing bowls. I believe the sets always came with four bowls so I'm always on the lookout. Now I need to find two more white on aqua/turquoise  appropriately sized bowls and I'll have my set.
These Cinderella bowls are shaped a little differently. They are more 'boxy' but just as purdy!
Here's all my pretty little Butterprint Pyrex collection. I just love this pattern and this pattern loves me too! :)
You may wonder if I use my olden Pyrex? Yes, ma'am, I do! I put all kinds of things in them, raw fruits and veggies and cooked veggies. I don't put these in the oven though. I know lots of folks do though. I'm a tad chicken or maybe Rooster if you know me!
When I'm not poking fruit or veggies in my Pyrex, I just poke them in my little glass front corner cabinet! I love my Pyrex!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Cinderella, Cinderella
All I hear is Cinderella, from the moment I get up
till shades of night are falling
There isn't any letup, I hear them calling, calling
Go up and do the attic and go down and do the cellar
You can do them both together

How lovely it would be
If I could live in my fantasy
But in the middle of my dreaming
They're screaming at me

Every time she'd find a minute
That's the time that they begin it
Cinderelly, Cinderelly


Cinderelly, Cinderelly
Night and day it's Cinderelly
Make the fire, fix the breakfast
Wash the dishes, do the mopping

And the sweeping and the dusting
They always keep her hopping

She goes around in circles
Till she's very, very dizzy
Still they holler

Keep a-busy Cinderelly!

We can do it, we can do it
We can help our Cinderelly
We can make her dress so pretty
There's nothing to it, really
We'll tie a sash around it
Put a ribbon through it
When dancing at the ball
She'll be more beautiful than all
In the lovely dress we'll make for Cinderelly

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry
Gonna help our Cinderelly
Got no time to dilly-dally
We gotta get a-goin'

I'll cut with these scissors!

And I can do the sewing!

Leave the sewing to the women
You go get some trimmin'

And we'll make a lovely dress for

We'll make a lovely dress for
