Friday Photo Flashback ~ 1970

Welcome to Friday Photo Flashback,

Friday Photo Flashback

Yes, I know I wasn't even born yet in 1970, but I wanted to do something a little different today.

I know, I know. Breakin' the rules again! Just call me the rule-breaker! ;-)

Last night, I was baking a cake for work, and, of course I had to take a picture. Right? Right! I mean, I know y'all take pictures of your food, too. Right? Right!


I also happened to have a few dishes out that I cleaned out from our cupboard the other day. Dishes are my passion. I have way too many of them, and I needed to make room for... more... what? Why, dishes, of course!

So... food + dishes = what else? Pictures! Hehehe! All of my passions! Food + dishes + pictures!!!

Now, I know that somebody, somewhere out there had these dishes growing up, too! Come on. Admit it! :-)

We always called them our white dishes with the little green flowers. I checked them out online, and they are called: Spring Blossom Green by Corelle. Very popular back in the 1970's!

I'm still going to keep some for everyday, but I just don't have room for all of them anymore. So, I'm passing these few on to my sister to add to her collection. My mom gave both of us some a few years back when she got new ones. We did have lots of them, after all. My mom had a set. My grandma had a set. Of course, now, her new ones keep breaking, and these old ones? They never break. NEVER!

Today, I choose joy in my family and memories. I love thinking back to the people and times (past and present) that these dishes remind me of.

Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...

***Don't forget to pray for someone today!

Oh my goodness! We had these dishes too...and so did half of my family! In fact, Grandma still uses hers, and you're right - they NEVER break!

Thanks for bringing back so many memories associated with those green dishes!

My aunt had those dishes...while we didn't have those mother had a baking dish that was the with the white flower neat. 8-)

Oh my gosh, my parents used to have dishes like that. What I wish my mom kept was her colorful mixing bowl!! They don't make them like that anymore.

Thanks for the memories!! I grew up in the 70's!

What fun memories...I'm a product of the 70s as it's ok if we break a few rules... My mom had a mixing bowl that was green with little white that's so cool!

Lorrie said...'s the same design just cool!

Oh, I love this correlle. We had the same pattern, but in yellow. When my mom died, I put all those dishes aside for my daughter to have when she grows up.

LOL! Ah, my mom still has a set of those dishes. :)
