Makes Me Happy 003

My little collection of vintage Pyrex bowls makes me happy. The yellow are from my mom and the green are from my mother-in-law. I can't really explain what it is I love most about them. The colors? The flower motif? The dishwasher-friendly-ness? All of the above?

I have what you might call a plethora of mixing bowls in my kitchen. But these bowls are the first ones I reach for and they always bring a smile to my face.

Currently, I can hear a crazy ton of birds singing outside right now. I wonder what the ruckus is about? I can also see Z-cakes playing out in the yard. She found the winter clothes and is currently wearing one rain boot, one snow boot, a T-shirt, and a pointy beanie. Mmm...makes me very happy.

"Makes Me Happy" is a mini-series that will be featured through the month of October. It's purpose is to celebrate the small-inexpensive luxuries in life that bring a smile to my face. Please play along if you'd like. Embrace the everyday.

Oh God I love those bowls. Love them, love them, love them. I have been telling myself I am going to start collecting those when I see them at flea markets for quite awhile now. But of course now that I want them they are no where to be found! Those bowls ALWAYS remind me of my grandmother. I can completely understand why those make you happy!
