Brownware Dishes, a Kitchen Memory

I am absolutely excited this afternoon about something I found at a consignment shop that even the horrendous traffic on my side of town can’t put a damper on it!  My mom had a few pieces of brownware dishes that she enjoyed using when I was growing up. She had an oval serving bowl, an oval platter, and a quart-size pitcher as well as a few mugs and small bowls.  I think that there must have been 8 bowls originally, but there were just 5 when I got the set.  And, of course, a few years ago, I dropped one of the bowls which broke beyond repair.  I was devastated!

This afternoon I took some items to a consignment shop and had to wait to see if all would be accepted.  I love browsing through the store while waiting.  I was quite surprised to see some brownware dishes on a shelf just like my mom’s!  I even called my son to check on what I had just to make sure they were the same!  At first I decided the asking price was a bit steep, but then realized that the green colored tag meant that they were 50% off the price!  I knew I could get 4 of the bowls at the reduced rate and complete my set of 8 bowls once again!  I am thrilled!
