My pyrex finds

 This will be short and sweet. I am trying to get ready for a yard sale Saturday morning and have lots of things but nothing priced and I always seem to wait till the last minute then panic.

I went to 3 resale shops while in St Louis last Monday after the Gypsy Caravan flea market. My friend suggested we go to some resale shops.
I found these 3 pyrex bowls at such a good price I couldn't leave them and they are not even a color I buy, I like the pink, turquoise, lime green. But they now live with all the other clutter I bring home and set either in the studio or on my kitchen cabinet till I can find another spot for them

You know it's a sickness LOL why couldn't I just leave them for someone who likes olive green pyrex? My Mom  had these once guess that's why I was attracted to them ? She even had the kitchen utensils that matched .
Today Is June 1st would have been my Mom & Dad's /stepdad 55 th anniversary. I miss them both .They married when my sister and I was very little in age .

  1. Your showing my pattern I have from when I got married in 1980!
    How was the Gypsy it was hot!!

    1. The Gypsy caravan was good, I seen a lot of things I have bought and filed my house with already, lots of vintage clothes, which I noticed because I know people who I look for.
      There was a couple booths I could have spent a lot at , like a booth who had huge letters cut from old tin roofing metal $20 each
      A lot of old ladies my age selling things from the 1980's LOL, one shabby chic booth that looked like some we see on blogs from Marburger I got her card something like Pariabells was the name. I will look when I get home . Girl it was HOT

  2. Those are so pretty! Good luck with your sale!
    Have a great night!
