The 443 Butterprint Cinderella Mixing Bowl was the first thing I've picked up at my local Savers in ages. I've spotted a few things recently, but they've either been in horrible condition or ridiculously overpriced (for a thrift store). This wasn't one of my cheaper finds, but I couldn't help but grab it after the lack of finds recently.
My next find was actually an antique store purchase, but I think it was worth a few extra dollars. I found a JAJ Pyrex Red Gooseberry Cinderella Mixing bowl. It kind of caught me off guard. I haven't run into much JAJ stuff and a few quick internet searches on my phone at the store didn't provide me with much information. So I headed home without it and checked into it a little more. While Gooseberry isn't my favorite pattern, I couldn't get the bowl out of my head. I went back to the store this weekend hoping it was still there. Lucky for me, it was.
When I got it home, I threw one of the pink gooseberry dishes I had next to it to show the color contrast.
Like I said, Gooseberry isn't one of my favorite patterns, and I've been toying with the idea of parting with some of my collection, so we'll see if it makes the cut if I start selling off some of my pieces. But for now it looks great on the shelf with the rest of my collection.
