With my thrifty-pal-garage-sale-partner
Anyways, as I don't have any *new* thrifty finds to share this week I thought I would show my Pyrex collection to date and a thrifty little project I did this weekend.
I started collecting vintage Pyrex in late May and have been lucky enough to find quite a few pieces between garage sales and thrift stores. I am not sure where I will ultimately display them, but for now they are stacked on the buffet, close at hand so I can use them. I love serving food in the colourful bowls and have used a few items in the oven as well. It's a fun and inexpensive thing to collect. The orange Pyrex are my very favourite.
Onto my little project...I had a birthday recently and was spoiled by my family and friends. I have to share one of my gifts with you. When I lifted the tissue paper look what I found...
Isn't that just a bag of happiness? OF COURSE, it's from my super-wonderful-fantabulous friend Char (you're the best!) and because I am not one to wait to use new things I got busy right away. You may have seen this bowl in my garage sale finds last weekend.
It was a tough decision what colour to go with but I decided on this...
Now, that's a pop of colour in our otherwise very neutral kitchen nook!! I just love it.
Thanks for visiting me today. I'll be linking this up to Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures and Debbie's Garage Salen party
ETA: also hooking up to Sarah's before and after party on Thrifty Decor Chick!
