I have been delving into minimalist blogs as of late. You see, I have been on a quest to simplify and declutter my life. I'm still in the planning stages. To date, I haven't made noticeable progress... but I plan to. There's really very little we need in life. Colorful mixing bowls... essential.
An outing with Dick to the Blooming Arts Festival in Bartow, Florida would have been a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon in and of itself, but with $40.00 less in my pocket, I happily cradled a four-bowl pyrex 400 series primary color nesting bowl set in my arms. (Sizes: yellow-4 quart, green-2 1/2 quart, red-1 1/4 quart, and blue 1 pint). These cheerful bowls debuted in the 1940s. They were not numbered until the 1950s. Mine are numbered 401, 402, 403, and 404. (Note: Tonight, I followed an eBay listing for a set of bowls identical to mine. The bidding just ended. "The item has sold for US $86.99. Item: VTG set 4 PYREX PRIMARY COLORS MIXING nesting BOWLS." Additionally, there will be shipping charges. I have passed by many of these pyrex primary color mixing bowl sets in antique stores and various outdoor events where antique dealers are selling their wares. The average price tag has been $90.00 - $100.00.)
The vendor's booth was as colorful as their (now my) mixing bowls.
