It will be nearly two years since my nana died.
I miss her so much.
After she died, I went through the house with some of my aunts and thought about some of the things I wanted to keep before the rest of the contents were donated to the Salvation Army.
I got a little glass eye bath, her beside travel clock, my old doll that used to sit on the spare bed (that is missing one eye and has scraggly hair and is really ugly, but I don't care) and whom all us grandchildren would play with when we came to visit, as well as some other bits and bobs that would mean nothing to anyone else.
This is one of the things I wanted to keep, along with some of her old Tupperware.
Nana never had a lot of money; she'd rather spend what little she did have on others.
So for her, to buy Tupperware would have been a real extravagance.
Interestingly, the hostess for the party was my mum, and it was held a a couple of years after I was born as the catalogue was published November '73.
These are the containers I kept from nana's house.
I have this jug in the picture below.
I bought it from a garage sale for 50c but it didn't have a lid and I'm unable to buy a replacement one now.
It's so interesting looking back at old brochures like this.
So many of these containers are still around in the latest container, and I'm amazed at how many pieces of Tupperware I own that feature (perhaps in a different color or slightly different 'look') in this catalogue!
I even have the order form that she used.
Nana bought a Small Wonderlier (set of 3) for $3.29 and a large salt and pepper set for $1.79.
If only prices were still that low!
I love and miss you.
