It seems to be universal...the candy dish that is. It usually appears at the grandma or the great-grandma's house. This happens to be the case. Bright colored little pieces of candy fill the pink glass bowl and the pull towards it is strong. The great-grandma who owns this candy dish provides a plastic spoon and tiny cupcake papers to accomodate the little ones.
When the visits occur, it is almost impossible to walk past the glass table where the pink dish sits.
The funny thing is, the dish completely disappears after the servings are issued. Great-grandmas are smart ladies. They know too much candy is not good...right???
Years ago, quite a few years ago, the adorable ones in the generation before were just as drawn to candy. The third cute little blond with the white ribbon in her hair is the mother to the twins in the previous picture. The country style candy store at the beach was almost impossible for her to walk past too. That is why she smiles as she watches their faces light up at the sight of candy...she remembers.
But it became puzzling to them when they discovered her other pink glass dish filled with candy, on the coffee table. You can tell by their facial expressions that they are perplexed.
What does one do with glass candy? It looks so good and pretty but eating it is another story. I can just imagine them saying," who would ever want this kind of candy?"
Oh, the little moments of simple pleasures in life.
What memories do you recall of candy dishes or the candy store?
