Kitch-Encounters

I had a little Corningware tea pot when they first came out. Then I sold it at a garage sale years ago. Now I bought one at a garage sale.
Now it's considered vintage.
 What does that say about me?
I love the classic little cornflower design. 
That's the wire heart you've seen in previous posts.
 I wrapped it with a strip of t-shirt fabric from a shirt on it's way to the rags basket. 
I tied on a blue check ribbon.

On the other counter I'm still using my little white painted caddy. 
The I love coffee print.

Cheers!
Rita

  8. Hi Rita, I had to come right over as soon as I saw the teapot on your link picture! I grew up with that pot and my mom STILL uses it everyday! She cleans it with vinegar and it looks like new! Makes good water for tea, too! Linda

  9. Rita, I love that little tea pot, your story is so funny! I remember those things when I was a kid and maybe my mom had it, who knows, she loved Corning ware...she still has some dishes and pots with lids, from way back!
    I just came from TTT, at Marty's. Have a nice week. Hugs, FABBY

  10. I'm a baby boomer so I know what you're saying about what is "vintage" - I think it's funny when the younger collectors get excited about avocado green pyrex casserole dishes.
    PS I still have my original cornflower blue teapot and a few casserole dishes.

  13. I truly try not to think about your statement re: our things being Vintage. Oh my. I still use some of my corning bowls from when we got married (1975). Yep, they're in the malls now as vintage bowls. Love your post!
