Here are some of the things that have recently made their way into my home.
Some lovely Pyrex from my friend, Kat. Look at the lid to that aqua piece! It has a lovely gold design! And I've been needing a divided casserole. Since my kids are anti-potato, it will make roast-night dinners easier for me. Carrots on one side. Potatoes on the other.
These are also from Kat. A Pyrex pie plate, a little flower teacup for Spenser, and a fruity casserole dish. I was just looking at that same pattern in the thrift store the day that Kat dropped it off at my house. It has strawberries on it! Swoon!
She also brought over some vases and craft supplies. Thank you, Kat. It was like Christmas day going through the box.And here are a few more treasures from the flea market last Friday. A set of six Pyrex bowls/mini-casserole dishes. I already have an aqua one, which I use for salads. This set of three aqua, two yellow, and one olive cost $1.50 total.
Does anyone recognize these glasses? Mom-mom used to have these when we were growing up (and maybe she still does). Pop-pop ran a BP gas station until his first retirement and these glasses were a promotional item, probably in the 70's or so. The smiley faces always remind me of my grandparents. I love them. When I saw a set of five for $5, I thought it was a pretty good deal. Then when I saw a set of three for $3 each, I knew the set of five was a bargain, so I hopped, skipped, and jumped my way back to the first table and scooped them up.
Two little tins. What can I say? They are cute and useful. I can put some sewing supplies in them.
And this was a totally frivolous purchase. Over a year ago I bought a dog dish, that I use as a butter dish for very special company (i.e., Karyn and Dianne and the missionaries). I found its twin at the flea market! I had to buy it. It was just too ... weird ... that I would find two of these odd things in the same town. It was only $1 and worth every bit of it to me. How can I not smile when I see twin dogs holding butter on my dining table?
