Pyrex Party


Last Friday, Jordana, from the blog White Cabana, emailed pictures of the stacks of pyrex available in St Jacobs.  The green bowl caught my eye.  Yes, I paid quadruple what I would have paid if it was sitting on the shelf at goodwill...but the chances of that happening, and me connecting with it...slim!

I also bought this yellow picnic basket for a song!

ps. The boys LOVED the antique mall...my preschooler thought the old trucks and cars were the BEST...and the little one slept peacefully in his car seat/stroller.
pps. I will style up the bowls and basket in the near future (first I need to take down the balloons and Christmas tree)

  1. I think that red/orange bowl's pattern is called something like "Friendship".... We always have lots of Pyrex at the consignment store I've started working at and that patter is always popular!

  3. there was this small chunky beat up pine bench/seat for $60 that I LOVED...but I have no place for it! It was a yelllowy pine, so could be considered ugly (vanish that had yellowed?) but I ADORED it! oh well! I have so many small seats in this house, I seem to have a thing for benches, ottomans and stools!

  7. A few booths at the antique mall had vintage ornaments...I bet it is a good place to find them next December!
