|Hey, that's me and the old Texasware Bowl my mom and I used when cooking and baking. I still use it today.|
I had several kind letters from Joan Luntz's daugther. In case you don't know, she was the designer of Brookpark and married to the President of International Molding. After that I heard from her granddaughter. They were actually looking to buy some of the dinnerware that Joan designed. I'm glad I could help preserve some of the wonderful memories of Joan's creations under the Brookpark sections. Famous parents or not, we all have moms and grandmoms and we all have our memories.
Here's a few ways Melmac has made memories:

My grandmother had the ugliest olive dishes by TexasWare or Allied Chemical, I wasn't sure, but I remember eating off them as a kid. I always hated those dishes. I read your blog all the time. Can you believe I went out and assembled a set of those ugly dishes. My kids and I eat lunch on them, and I smile because they remind me of her. - Theresa Powers , California "

I never really thought about it, but she had tons and tons of plastic n the form of chocolate and candy molds! Mom would make her own candy. Sinful Chocolates (a pardody of her name Cynthia) was found in the local stores in Danforth, Maine. Do you find it ironic that the love for plastic continues on with me?
