Cinderella Bowls – $145 USD – Retroburgh

Us Filthy gals love collecting things that we can actually use.  Since the kitchen is where we love spending a lot of our time, collecting kitchen housewares has become a natural fit.  Our kitchen is full of vintage pans, tools and gadgets.  Over the years we’ve been collecting a strange assortment of vintage goods from the kitchens of my family members, flea markets and thrift stores and Etsy.

Recently, we came across a mesmerizing video on chef Ross Sveback’s mixing bowl collection.  The video can be viewed below.

Sveback says he uses his bowls for decoration, mixing of ingredients and for serving foods.  His favorite vintage brands are Fire King, Fiesta ware, Texas-Ware, Pyrex and Yellow-ware.  He also loves the glass bowls from vintage mixers.

Anchor Ovenware Green Glass – $19.99 USD – CottonTopVintage

If you are interested in collecting mixing bowls, there is a brand called Mason Cash.  Mason Cash is an English company that been around for over 100 years.  They moved their manufacturing facility over to Portugal in the last decade – look for these work bowls stamped ‘Made in England’ on the bottom since they have become a rarity.

Rustic Mixing Bowls – $98.00 USD – Snapshot Vintage

Sveback goes on to say that he has found some unique mixing bowls sets at better kitchen stores and home décor retailers, where they are obviously new – yet interesting materials like bamboo, or imported from another part of the world such as France.  A current brand that he loves to collect is Emile Henry, a French brand that uses a Burgundy clay as the body – why this is of interest is because it makes it oven safe.

What do you think about using vintage kitchen supplies?  Do you have a favorite?  If so, let us know in the comments below – we’d love to hear from you!

McFashion

bigMacMcDonald’s has just redefined the term “fast fashion.” The fastfood company’s Swedish headquarters launched a capsule collection of white clothes and other items printed all over with Big Mac images. The sandwich-themed goods were unveiled in a “McWalk” fashion show at a mall in Stockholm, Sweden.nluqtj-b88368464z.120150326205109000g9u8pabu.10The small collection, which includes thermal tops and bottoms, a raincoat, rainboots, wallpaper, a dog coat, duvet cover and pillowcase, is available online at the Big Mac Shop in Sweden, but an international e-tail site is in the works. A portion of the sales of the merchandise will go to the Ronald McDonald Children’s Fund, according to a company statement.

That collection received mixed reviews. A critic from New York magazine’s The Cut called the riff “fun, funny and fearless,” while a critic for the website Jezebel found the dresses “offensive” and “desultory” because they were based on the uniforms of fast-food workers who typically are paid low wages.  Rebena couldn’t agree more.  Fast Food meets Fast Fashion.  This clothing line is just like a big mac – disgusting, cheaply made, addictive and unsustainable.  Anyhoo, no major fashion reviews are in yet for the new Big Mac collection aimed at the mass market.  You know Rebena’s opinion and we’d love to hear yours.  Leave a comment and let us know if you are Mc-Lovin’ Mickey Dee’s new line.

Stranger Cake

CakeHow easy it was for him to destroy
something beautiful
for no reason at all
and I fear one day he will succeed
at doing so to himself.
