Happy 4th of July, and Py!


Py as in Pyrex, that would be. I found several pieces of Pyrex yesterday, but these were the only ones I brought home. I had yet another divided dish in my hand, but I put it down at the last minute, as well as an olive bowl that was a bit bigger than this one. It had some condition issues.

This yellow one was too cute though. It'll have something in it later today, maybe fruit salad or baked beans to go with grilled burgers, if the weather holds out. Thunderstorms are predicted this evening.

The little salt and pepper shakers were 30 cents! I call that an irresistible bargain.

I ran into an old friend from school days while thrift shopping yesterday. (Hi, N.!) She gave us directions to two thrift stores in the area that we hadn't been to before. They were both nice stores! I hadn't seen her since several summers ago when serendipity threw us together in seating at a Big Bad Voodoo Daddy concert. I mean, what are the odds? I have a lot of fond memories of hanging out with N. back in the day, and it's nice that we still have much in common. I wouldn't have predicted it would include swing music and thrift shopping, but that's cool!

I'll have more thrift store vintage finds to chat about on Thursday. Hope you're all having a great weekend. Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July. Glad you were able to find some treasures yesterday. My yard sale hunts were not as productive. Love the pyrex bowl & salt & pepper shakers.

Lovely bowl. The colour is so vibrant.

How many pieces of Pyrex is that now?

(If you promise not to tell anyone I'll confess to you that I have a juicer/reamer/citrus squeezer addiction, so I understand your love affair with pyrex )

My grandmother had a yellow bowl just like that one, along with a blue-green one - I distinctly remember them nestled together in her little aluminum cabinet in the kitchen! Thanks for bringing back that memory!

The Pyrex bowl is such a cheery color.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy! I love their music!

Happy 4th of July! I hope you remain dry during your celebration. It's 98 here today, which for July 4th in southern Nevada is pretty darn good.

I love Big Bad Voodoo Daddy! It take me back! Now my kids like to hear them. I love it when you go on the hunt and find such a great treasure!
