Day two of Robert's "Show Me..." photo project was to post a picture centered around something in your kitchen. My favorite part of my kitchen is the glass door cabinets above.
I wasn't sure when I first moved in if I would like them. I'm just a cram things in and shut the door kind of girl and with these you have to be neat. I've come to like them a lot. I have put some of my most precious glass items on the shelves.
If you open the doors on the left you can see a glass dessert bowl set on the top shelf that my Mom's good friend gave me when I got married. Some of you will remember my Mickey Mouse cup from Project Black. The red bowl was given to me by my Grandpa when I was still young enough not to appreciate it so much but it has become one of my favorite possessions.
In the left side of the cabinet is a plate that is a Warren Kimble design that I picked up for under five dollars and didn't know until later it was a Kimble and a great deal. The compote dish is a twin to the one you saw in the left cabinet. They look a lot like carnival glass but I don't think they are. The swirled glass collection on the middle shelf is from Scotland. My Hubs used to travel to a submarine base there and would bring them back to me from his trips. In the bottom shelf is a glass coke bottle my brother found out hunting last fall. It is stamped on the bottom with my hometown's name. When I was very young there was a bottling company in the town where we grew up. It has been gone probably fifty years. It was quite a find that he knew I would appreciate.
