I bought a piece of Pyrex yesterday, I don't buy much anymore but how could I leave this behind..
Yes, it's a 404 pink bowl - it has a few scratches on it and Bar Keepers Friend didn't really do too much for it. I bought it because - I like the pink, I have two others and it was $1 - yes, $1 - it wasn't marked, I asked her and she said all bowls are $1 - I had to take it.
So, here's what I have now in pink and turquoise bowls - missing one bowl in each set - I've thrifted all of these - both of the 404's were $1 - they look so pretty together - maybe someday I'll come across the ones I need.
I mentioned a few posts ago that Carla and I had bought a box of vintage Christmas cards, we split them up - here's what I got - aren't they cute? They came with envelopes too and were in the original box which she has.
Don't you just love Miss Chiquita Banana? That book was printed in 1950. The other two are Good Housekeeping ones.
We're addicted to "The Sopranos" - we didn't watch it when it was first broadcast - it's a great show, we'll be sad when we get to the end, we're going to finish up Season 3 tonight. I found this book at the same shop as the pink bowl, it was strange, there were two the very same there, I paid $1 - I'm planning to go through it and probably use it for SMASHing.
I had a lucky day on the scarf front- Salvation Army had a rack full and a plastic milk box full - how nice they had a chair there so I sit down and go through the whole box. All of the scarves were $1 - come to think of it, I think just about everything I bought was a $1. I found three Vera's..
I picked out all of these for resale - the big grey scarf on the end - it's a Mercedes Benz silk scarf, hopefully, somebody needs a scarf like that!
Gary was talking about the little wooden spoons the other day that used to come with sundaes - remember those? Lo and behold, yesterday at Home Sense, I found this ice cream set - paper cups and wooden spoons!
I am so lucky to receive such nice things in the mail from blogging friends - Ann from A Sentimental Life sent me this beautiful set of four Vera Christmas napkins that she found - I really appreciate it, Ann, thank you!!
