I have a set of blue speckled, confetti, splattered (you pick the word you like to describe them) nested, matching, Texas ware bowls. Now you would think that would be enough since they range from about 7 inches up to 13, but NO, they’re never enough! So, following along with the plan to get my kitchen in order, I bought myself a Christmas present.
Aren’t they great? I accidentally ran across an eBay auction from an estate sale for a brand new set of nested, still in the cellophane wrapper set of pink/red bowls identical in size and confetti pattern as my blue set. Now I have twins. You may or may not know, but these are in big demand on eBay and go for a pretty penny. Since I’m not willing to part with too many pretty pennies, I was thrilled to get a brand new set that left little to the imagination that their condition was truly mint and that I’d be getting quality merchandise for those pennies.
Many of you may not know or remember, but we were forced to tear out the entire kitchen just weeks after moving into this ‘new’ house due to the previous owners non-disclosure of MAJOR MOLD. This left us without walls, kitchen cabinets, floors, ceilings, etc… I mean it was really bad. We would hold our breath with every wall we opened that maybe hopefully this was the end of the demolition and were constantly praying that it never got any worse.
We’ve been living out of Rubbermaid totes and metal shelving units. We are putting in the cabinets as we can afford it and as time permits. So, every bit of organization is celebrated, right down to the bowls.
