In Bloom

Vintage Chip and Dip Bowl

Just found this at an estate sale in Chi-town. Looks even better in person. Viewed from the top it looks like a flower with the scalloped edges and middle bowl which is also scalloped. Really pretty rosa rugosa pattern in gold on the top. Perfect condition. Check it out at http://www.prairieflowervintage.etsy.com

Mad Men

  It’s been too long. I need my “Mad Men” fix. And for my viewing party?  Fondue, of course.

I love this one that I just picked up at an estate sale.  It makes me think of flower power every time I look at it.

Now comes the hard part.  Cheese or chocolate? WWDD? Is there an alcohol fondue?

Who Loves Fondue?

I found this really interesting site tonight – The Retro Recipe Challenge.  For those who love to cook (or maybe those who still haven’t gotten over Tang and freeze-dried ice cream) there’s a place to share your recipes and memories with like minded folk. It’s worth a look-see.
