It was a Pyrex week


Went to a couple of out of town flea markets with friends and found some fun items. The Tupperware Popsicle makers I had when my kids were growing up and had been looking to replace them for a while. I just wanted something small and refreshing in the freezer for these hot summer days.


This orange Pyrex casserole or baking dish was the first find. It is tangerine orange and in good condition and had the lid. I'm beginning to like the bright yellow and orange Pyrex. It is small. Only six inches in diameter but still a good find.


This three piece set of  Pyrex Butterfly pattern refrigerator dishes was another great deal. There is some wear on the edges of the tops which says to me that they were well loved and used. It's been fun learning the patterns and different types of Pyrex dishes.


Then there was this neat set of Pyrex Bowls in the Shenandoah pattern. These also have been used and loved, but are in very good condition. The large bowl is nine inches and the small bowl is seven inches. This was the first time I had seen this pattern.


This darling fruit print metal six inch plate by Georges Briard caught my eye. even with the small damage spot it is beautiful and would look nice mounted on the wall.


This Mr and Mrs Santa was made in Japan and is actually made to sit on a shelf. It was so adorable that I couldn't leave it behind. I also found some pillow cases for pillow case dresses to donate to charity and a spool of three different vintage crochet and tatted trims. These need to be soaked, but I am hopeful that I will be able to use them in my future sewing projects or add as inventory to my on line Etsy store. butterflyplace.etsy.com. The puppy salt and pepper shakers are just finding themselves in whatever picture they can. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I'll see you through the upcoming week.

I'm having a great time now hunting for the pyrex. Can't wait to see what the future brings. I have a recipe for fudgesicles that I want to make in my tupperware popsicle makers. I made them for the children when they were growing up and I can't wait to make some this time just for me.

Hi Jill,
I never thought that at my age and this time in my life that I would be reinventing myself, but here I am and enjoying every minute of it. When I think of all the items that have passed through my life when the internet wasn't around I have to laugh. People are buying the stufff I used daily. Blogging has been wonderful and who would have thought the world would get this small. Thank you for following me. I look forward to checking out your sites also.
