I tell myself all the time. Do not buy vintage things that can not be put to daily use in the kitchen. Simply because I have oodles of wonderful things packed up. Lots of great vintage kitchen wares, that I do not have cabinets space to keep out.
Then I started to pick up random Corningware with the blue cornflower. I adore this stuff. I have never seen a piece of it in bad shape. Seriously. They have always been in excellent condition no matter how old. Corningware really does hold up. And nothing pleases me more than a great vintage item in perfect condition.
That hopefully explains why I felt the need to buy these skillets. These lovely minty Corningware "Spice of Life" handled individual size saucepans - skillets .
That required me to make space for in my cabinets! These were just so pretty. And in perfect condition. How could I leave them behind?
So in order to justify buying them. I have turned them into serving pieces for the table. Of course I got a little grief for it. Since I made a big deal about not buying things, unless I could immediately find a use and space for it. :)
Just look how pretty they are! I needed these! And I am using them every opportunity I get... to keep sassy comments about my obsession with the vintage kitchen wares to a minimal.
Plus since these saucepans - skillets are the smaller sizes... they fit in well with the Cornflower ones in the cabinet. Just to help make this purchase a little more understandable. I got these three Corningware skillets for a dollar. It was as if they were destine to come home with me!
