I'm supposed to be busy unpacking - but some things need scrapped in the moment.

Mamaw in the kitchen January 14, 2015 age 92 - app. 1 month before she went to heaven - doing what she loved most - cooking! I think of her every day !

Mamaw got these mixing bowls as a passing party gift many years ago when she worked at the Dayton Malleable in Ironton - most likely they were a “recycled” gift - they were given away at the local banks when you opened new bank accounts - made deposits etc. They were over the price limit for the gift exchange - they were loved and they were used alot! The bowls served fruit salad at almost every family gathering. Sometime before 2008 Mamaw and Dodie were at an antique store there was a set just like Mamaws for $50 “not in as good as shape as mine” She was shocked! Not long after they were stored under her bed - she continued to use them and every time she did she told me about seeing them in that antique store and that I need to be careful when I use them and to keep the set together. I’m guessing they were from the 1950s.


what I used to for the scrapbooking to follow later today - back to the boxes of unpacking!!!!
