There are certain houseware items that just evoke such a great memory of childhood, it's almost overwhelming. For us, the classic CorningWare Cornflower set sends us into a tizzy. Our best friend is usually moved to tears when she finds any Fiestaware. And, who could forget the blue and white Liberty Blue and Willow knock-off plates that were ubiquitous in 1970s households? Our mother purchased a complete set at Jewel, one piece a week -- along with an entire Funk & Wagnall's encyclopedia set.We actually now own several of the Cornflower pieces from our childhood. Sadly, other items were broken or given away. We're grateful for what we have.
What pieces are your childhood classics?
