my favorite dish

... is my grandmother's candy dish.
She used to always have a supply of those strawberry hard candies with gooey filling.
Yum.

Now it keeps small 2 inch pieces of art (twinchies) that I've swapped with friends ...
less fattening :)

I LOVE your corner view! I have some similar glass candy dishes of my grandmother's -- hers always held wrapped hard candies. I wonder what our children will have of ours when we're old and gone?

How pretty! I remember candy dishes like that! I'm not sure if my grandmother had one, or if one of my aunts had one. Thank you for the memory!

"art twinchies" may have fewer calories but are just as tasty - a feast for the eyes. It's such a beautiful candy dish. Wonderful thoughts on your Corner View.

Love the little glass dish,Kimmie.
I have seen similar shaped ones with the lids and have always loved them. I have a little glass
dish with a handle on it and I keep
peppermint candies in it, on my
coffee table. It's a help yourself treat bowl.

Best dish of all. Lovely transformation, to use it for another kind of colorful treats. They look delicious.
