Collectin Green Glassware and Grandma Minnie's Kitchen!
Welcome to My Grandma Minnie's Kitchen!
She always knew what was good...
Like slices of sugar coated homemade bread.
~Flour bags that would make an apron when all the flour was baked into bread.
One of those Aprons was my 'First Apron'. You can see it and other Vintage Aprons on 'Han~Done Aprons 4Sale'. The Tab is under the Header. It's one of Bloggers New Gadgets ...'Pages'. If you haven't seen this addition to Blogger...here's your chance.
~Cinnamon, sugar and butter topping on Oatmeal served in the Green Glass Bowl that came in the Oatmeal Box.
Most folks collect Pink Depression glassware. I guess that's why it's harder to find and priced higher. I'm a Gal who likes Green and so did my Grandma Minnie! I wish I could say this Green Collection was hers, but it's Not! Hers is still in Iowa with my Cousin AliceJean. She's the oldest GrandGal and also a collector of Grandma Minnie's Glassware!
I found this shelf full of Green Glassware at one of my favorite Antique Shops here in San Angelo, Texas. West End Collectibles, where you will find everything from Aprons to ZebraPrints, and all in excellent condition, creatively displayed and comfortable atmosphere. Yep, it is heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer.
What is Depression Glass? I'm glad you asked! I thought I knew, but wanted to be sure, so I Googled. Here's what I found out....
*DP made it's debut in the 1920s before the Great Depression of 1929 began, with some patterns still being produced as far along as the 1950s.
*Most people equate Depression Glass with the “prizes” found in boxes of oatmeal many years ago. And, yes, it was found in oatmeal. The Quaker Oats cereal company literally saved one glass company from going bankrupt by ordering several boxcar loads of the product during a particularly lean time during the Depression years.
HERE is where I found this information and more....FYI.
