Up The Pyrex Ladder

I just love  to go outside with my inside stuff. I thought all these bowls would look pretty in the snow and then found my old ladder behind the garden shed so just started putting them up the ladder.

I went to an estate sale and found another small pyrex that didn't make the ladder but will throw in a picture. I sort of like all the different colors together. Of course the pink is so great. At the estate sale there was a nesting set but sort of a grey platter like never seen it before it's still there it had mushrooms on them I think that's what it was.

 Did I ever mention I have the best neighbor's?

This little wheat bowl is setting on my wheelbarrow

You know I never was one to mix it up but I like this mixed up colors of pyrex bowls

here is another little blue bowl I found today for $3.95


Now after playing in the snow with the bowls I went to an estate sale and bought the least amount of things I had ever bought from this one ladies estate sale she always has the best of the best sales I mean people with good stuff kind of sale. I was not disappointed because I found some great cards of buttons with rhinestones

There was some large white buttons in the cardboard box with these and one really large brown coat button. I also bought two blue atlas jars with zinc lids for $3.00.

Then I headed out to one my usual antique mall stops just to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

  I found  these cute little well worn dirty Mary Jane's  I will have to use them in my altered art somehow look at the bottom still has dried dirt on them and a little wron spot.

 Another thing I  found that I just think is to cute is glove stretchers 50's 60's era I wanted them to use just one of them for an altered art valentine card. I know someone who is called Right Hand Girl and I am making her a Valentine card that says right hand girl  and I'll use the right hand stretcher. She doesn't read my blog so it will really surprise her and me if I get it completed by Valentine's day.

Another booth had this cute hanger marked way down and two other vintage wooden hangers 50 cents each just had to have them

I am heading to the studio to start making Valentine cards

  1. I have a huge yellow pyrex bowl exactly like the one on top, sugar. It was my mothers and I'd never get rid of it.

  2. I love your creativity! Great pyrex color for the out-of-doors! Also, wonderful estate sale finds - love the buttons!

  3. You are so much fun!I can't wait to see your Valentines.I'm especially interested to see the gloves stretchers.I wish I had the talent to do mixed media art...I'm never satisfied with what I make.I have a strong appreciation for it but not the talent.So I'm excited to see what you design.

  4. Neat old pyrex bowls- I have had some of them before too. My favorite is one my grandmother gave to me- a white one with colorful tulips on it! Thanks for sharing at Feathered Nest Friday!

  5. I like the last blue one best. They all look so cheerful on the ladder. xx
