Vintage Thingies Thursday



This to be an odd and end day for Vintage Thingies Thursday. However, if you join Coloradolady and her many, many friends you will see some greater sights.








These two little Pyrex refrigerator bowls go a long way back. They are either from the 40s or 50s time frame. I was fortunate enough to get them from my mother-in-laws estate.

This little button speaks for itself.

As for this button, I have no idea what it represents or why I have it. I am assuming it had something to do with a drilling company. Odd how we have some things.

Love your little pyrex! The buttons are cool! Funny how we keep something then forget why the heck for! LOL

The little pyrex dishes would be so very handy. I can imagine using them for leftovers made into additional meals.

Have a very wonderful Thursday.

I love those old refrigerator dishes, and have many of my own. Yes, it's amazing what we hold onto, and then can't remember why we did! There is just no explaining most of the things in our junk drawer!
Happy VTT!

Love the refrigerator dishes. The rigging button could also be for a type of construction where straps or chains are used according to my husband.

Maybe the rigging button has to do with sailing? See, I live on the coast and that's the first thing I thought of, and you live in TX and though oil rig! Interesting how that happens!

Maureen said...

The refrigerator dishes are loved by many...even here in VTT land. I am sure they will be along to admire them.

Hello Meme, the pyrex dishes do bring back memories. The buttons like that have always been fun for some people to collect. Someone would know what the Rigging button stands for. Yes, we do keep the oddest things sometimes. smile.

Have a great day tomorrow.
Hugs, Jeanne

Love those little pyrex dishes. When I was a girl in the 1970s I had a plastic set of these to use in my play kitchen. Sure wish I still had those. Yours are so pretty.

Love the Pyrex dishes! And the Carter Mondale election was the first one I remember as a child. It is amazing how some things just stay with us through our lives, isn't it?

I love your cute little Pyrex dishes! Thanks for coming over to my blog to say hello!! I just found some Pyrex and I'm wondering how long it will last with 2 teenage boys handling it!

Sarah said...

It's neat to see the pyrex dishes as my mom also has some of these in yellow--they are rectangular. Thanks for sharing!
