This is SO Cool!!

About a month ago I stopped by my Momma's house and she said she had a serving bowl that she'd picked up from an estate sale and thought I might like it. So she brings it out and YES I LOVE it!!! Absolutely one of the coolest pieces I have ever seen! Then she told me that this is a vintage piece as it was made in 1952! Then I was even more excited LOL!! So it has proudly been on display in my kitchen!






Tonight we headed to the city to celebrate my twin cousin's 17th Birthday and their Momma, my favorite Auntie text me and said that when I got there she had something to show me. She had been at my Great Aunt and Uncles house helping them pack because they are leaving us and moving to Washington to be near their daughter. They are both elderly and my Uncle is in a wheelchair which is getting to be way to much for my 84 year old Aunt. So while my Auntie was there she found this serving platter and a gravy bowl and thought to herself that it was something I would probably like to have as I would probably never see them again after this weekend (I am a very sentimental type person) so she got them for me and was so excited to show me when I got there! So we go into the house and she runs over to where they are and is like "do you LOVE them"?! I was in shock!!! I couldn't believe what I was looking at!!










Yep that's right they are matching pieces to the bowl my Momma got for me!! I was SO excited I said "OH MY these are the same pattern as the one I just got from my Momma"!!! I think I might have started jumping up and down to LOL!! I absolutely cannot believe how much my mom and her sister think alike! And how much they both know me!! I was beaming from ear to ear and am now on the hunt for more pieces to add to my *new* collection!!
