Pyrex and Rhinestones in The Blizzard

Well what else is a girl to do during a blizzard but play with her pretties?

 I have told you my new obsession is pastel colored  Pyrex dishes.
Since I got this bug I have been driving from one antique mall to another searching for these  I found all of these at once place .

I have been visiting The Pyrex Collective and her header is just fabulous colors. Like I said this is just one of my obsessions.

I am sure I will move one to another one soon but in the mean time I am enjoying these beautiful dishes.

 I just love the pink and turquoise colors also the lime green want more

The only thing about this is I have never seen a Pyrex dish at our local goodwill store. ladies always post their  finds for like $2.00 not in this town girls. So i need to get to the city more often.

I just love this yellow bread loaf pan. Also it is just perfect I don't think it has ever been used. I want to use all mine is that wrong to do or should I just showcase them? I am a person who uses all my treasures so I am sure banana bread is coming up in this pan.

 Can you see the blizzard out my kitchen window in the background?
          While Sissy and I are home today she is just relaxing and enjoying the snow day

While I was looking around the house for something to show I found my stack of old linens in my spare bedroom but my old obsession that I still love and buy every once in a while is RHINESTONES i have several i use for my altered art necklaces and cards but this is my good stuff

This is a green set and thought it looked good on my new lime green Pyrex casserole dish

A few of my pink rhinestone earrings clip on of course

Blue is my favorite color

Hearts and a ballerina and a cupid compact

I love this swan pin reminds me the the movie out now Black Swan or something like that

I know more blogs are into shabby chippy furniture and I am also but just wanted to show some pretties or what I think is pretty. If I can get in my storage area I have an old cabinet to pull out to show

Here is my Hollywood jewels(rhinestones really)

Us have a cup cakes while looking at all my treasures

can you tell which ones are mine and which ones are on the cover Of Country Living magazine?


this is my little 1950 purse called a Carry All you carried your money lipstick comb and power all in a little metal purse you could carry in the palm of your hand. The shop where I bought it had a dollar bill in the money clip and I said well just leave that in there.  See my camera

          Well of course it is still snowing and I am still watching it and while I am typing this my cable is going off and on . Please let me keep electricity I can go play in the studio and do without the cable.
  Now I was looking around over on It's A Cheery world and she has REDNESDAY I posted my Pink Cup Cakes

At Junkin Friday on A LA Carte blog I added some of my pyrex
