A short note from Betty Boomerang herself. She’s telling you about some adventure she had while in 1963. It seems like the theme this month is “Pretty in Pyrex.”

The information card comes with the list of items, their retail price, and a short description.

I love the color scheme of the box. So easy on the eyes and perfect for my kitchen!

Everything in my May 2017 Betty Boomerang box!

Rooster Vinyl Sticker ($2) This is a fun vinyl to add to a non-retro recipe binder to give it a little mid century flair!

Kikkerland Magnetic Kitchen Timer ($14.95) This 55 minute mechanical timer has a magnet on the back so it can stick to your fridge.

While I love retro and midcentury modern goodies, my love doesn’t extend to old technology. “Hey Siri, Set a timer for 10 minutes.” I also have dual timers on my oven and microwave, so this was just not for me.

The next bit was wrapped in this pretty and sparkly tissue paper.

Bette Love Studio Towel ($10) Yessss, I grew up with these exact bowls, which my grandmother still owns and uses! An ode to the comforts of home in one towel!

Betty Boomerang Magnet Set ($4.99)

And some familiar motifs for the fridge, in fresh updated colors (that are pretty 60s, but the treatment here seems nice and fresh and not garish). Love these, and the magnets are substantial enough to really hold things on the fridge.

The Goldenrod is the super familiar and wildly popular Butterprint from Pyrex.

 Black Magic Cake Recipe by Mid-Century Kitchen: My husband is actually mildly obsessed with all the cakes that can be made out of canned tomato soup, so I have the ingredients for this on our shopping list!

 World Kitchen Rise ‘n Shine Bowls ($30) Scandi fans should also take a look at these ones!

These bowls were inspired by Butterprint, one of the most popular vintage Pyrex patterns of all time – and was on the magnet above!

There are 3-, 6-, and 10-cup mixing bowls, and hopefully my children will fight over them after associating them with warm fuzzy memories like making cupcakes with their parents!

I love this modern interpretation, which is basically even more mid century modern than the original!

I’m tickled beyond belief by this box! If you’re a fan of retro styled goodies, you really need this box! The total value was about $62 (a little less than the card – the bowls are marked down now) but I still think that’s excellent, and I loved that the mixing bowls came with a period recipe to make with them. One of the products was a miss for me personally, but I still think it was well curated.

I’m so happy with the bowls I am thinking of getting the matching plates & bowls (I’m a Corelle fanatic, also due to my grandma’s influence). She’d think I’m a nut but this box hit all my nostalgia buttons. Now I need to make some cottage cheese salad!
