Love Kitchen smalls

I never really loved Pyrex till everybody in certain circles of mine said how they loved it and wanted pink sets.
Seems pink and turquoise anything has been going around some time now.Well anyway this estate sale I attended Saturday has some blue Pyrex dishes and I thought my friends would be upset with me if I passed on them so in honor of my Pyrex friends I got them

I guess so I could brag on finding some to match a small little covered dish I found at a shop for $4.00
This large dish would sure hold a great recipe of chicken and cheese  enchilada

                           This is the first little one I found and since blue is my favorite color

I put one of my green jadeite bowl on this ole rusty flower pot holder .I am putting items in the garage for the sale Monday and Tuesday this week and thought guess someone could use this to hold a bowl but not my jadeite

                the lid to the small casserole I didn't know lids matched the pattern on the bowls



Here is another one of my creations LOL I seen this back last winter so had to add jewels to my old silverware. These were some old clip on earrings

  This is the coffee pot I had my silver jeweled silverware in

     Metamorphosis Monday is At Between Naps on the Porch
   Faded Charm has a give a way and her 100th post
  Saavy Southern Style has WOW us Wednesday
 Elements Interiors has Whassup Wednesday
   Look what happened over at Heart and Home
  I wanted to say my yard sale Monday and Tuesday this week went very good. I let go of a lot of vintage, rusty, iron, metal, and linens.

At 6pm last night when I was putting things away and getting out the ole garbage bags a girl stopped by had Minnesota licenses plates on her car and just seen my yard sale so anyway just stopped to see what I had.
She started making her a pile of vintage leather coin purses and vintage pillowcases and asking prices on odd dish items. I said just put everything you want in a pile and we will negotiate on a price.
She ended up with so much stuff we like to never got it all in her little car because she had a chair and a huge laundry basket plus lots of clothes.
I asked her if she was moving she said no just going to the laundry mat.
well anyway LOL.
I gave her a 3 drawer cabinet plus lots of dishes 2 lamp shades 2  western leather belts , 2 serving bowls and 2 odd place setting of lenox dishes.
She gave me $10.00 and I was happy to rid my garage of all that.
 she was cute tall and thin  and was carring a play boy bunny bill fold LOL

  1. I like your pyrex. I would love to have that color blue! I have the olive green and a few other colors. Many years ago, I had the pink, when it was brand new.

    I have the green. That color in my collections started with J's mother's mixing bowl. White with the green. I've since added to that color over and over. Some green with white flowers and some white with green flowers. I actually use mine just about every day and really like them.

  2. Pyrex certainly has been around a long time, but it wears like iron! I have a few pieces that were my mothers.The blue and white is very pretty.

  3. Neat! I collect old Pyrex dishes too, and Fiesta ware. In a moment of madness I gave my jadeite to my future daughter in law....who ended up not being my daughter in law. Live and learn!!

  4. Kitchen stuff has become a big thing in the antique and collectors world. I see you are among them. Richard at My Old Historic House

  5. You're getting quite a collection going on here. I love that pattern and of course, the jadite bowl. What a great idea to add the vintage jewelry to the silverware...very clever.

  6. I find it hard to pass up a pretty colored pyrex bowl lately. Love the earrings on your old silverware. I'm glad you decided to keep your rose dishes!!! Although I would probably love to find you at a flea market selling them :) Thanks for leaving a comment today....about the rose dishes!

  7. Hi Janice, Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I am so glad to visited me. You sold all your vintage linens? Oh, darn, wish I would have been there. I am so into linens right now. Hey, the pyrex is great. Haven't gotten any of that, only the pieces I have had forever. . I see lots at the thrift store I go to. I can't start collecting pyrex. . . I already have the collecting bug for too many things. And I can't seem to part with them. Hope you will stop by again. I check out your blog all the time. Great posts. Thanks for sharing, Karie
