Anyway. The man is a sexy beast. I'll look at him alllll year long. Haha :-)
Next up, from Bruce Lee to ......chickens???
Yep, someone obviously had the same taste in kitchen decor as I.
The ceramic items are 1980's-90's items I collect. The pattern, I've recently discovered, is called "Country Calico" (thank you for mystery-revealing original package ebay auctions!). I have quite a wide-ranging collection - from tin recipe boxes & canisters to ceramics, tile sets, cups, etc. But these items are almost never marked. Not with a name or even a manufacturer. It's only through original packaging I've discovered the actual pattern name. When they are marked, the marks vary from JSNY to Artmark, to the ubiquitous "Made in Taiwan" sticker.
So hoard now while the hoarding's good, yes?
The yellow Pyrex bowl is one of the clear-bottomed 1980's-90's bowls, from the period of time that opal glass was replaced with clear.
I haven't had much interest in them until I recently found the large two-tone pink in Goodwill, and the two-tone blue just a couple of days later.
When I saw the yellow bowl yesterday, I realized it would nest perfectly between the two I had at home, so I paid 7 bucks for it. Which I believe is a few dollars more than I paid for the other two bowls combined.

I'd like to get a Fiesta utility tray/napkin holder (looks like a very shallow brownie pan). I don't actually have one of these, so I don't know how well it'd work out, but I'd like to see if one of those would hold 9 or so of these, and I could use these as individual jello containers. The tray would serve as a nice accessory to keep these guys all together in the fridge while they are setting up, I think.
Somewhere in the dark and dusty archives of this little dish blog is a post where I found my first two of these and how I said I wouldn't mind finding a whole bunch more of them. (Edit: This is where I was talking about them :-)
Well, that day came! Might have been two or three years ago, but here we are!
Hope you are finding thrifty treats and treasures!
