This week's new goodies.

Here are this week's new finds!!!!!! :)

Here is my (new to me) aqua vintage Pyrex bowl and vintage Pyrex snowflake casserole; both were $8 each. I absolutely love this color and had to buy them.

I found these cute little retro gloves for $3. I really have no idea why I bought them, besides the fact that they were so cute and colorful. I think that they will be cute hanging on a Christmas tree or a garland. I bought this bottlebrush wreath because it was on sale for $2, although it is a reproduction of an old ornament. Finally, I bought this cute little red drawer to put Christmas cards in for next year. I love it!

These plates are not vintage, but I just received them as an early birthday gift. They came from Italy (my Aunt is an artist and goes there occasionally to paint) and the company is called Vietri. I love how colorful they are.

Thanks for looking. :)

I found it!

Today....I FOUND IT!!!!! I have been looking for a BRIDES vintage Pyrex casserole for months, and I finally found one today! I was so excited!

It was only $12, too! :) Soooo happy about it. Haha.

I also somehow ended up with this vintage Fiesta saucer. (I just couldn't leave it behind!). My mom found the Compass Pyrex casserole at a thrift store for $3. Pretty good deal, I'd say.


Thanks for looking.

Another Pyrex moment...

I hope everyone is doing great! I have really, really appreciated all of the sweet comments lately! :) I just wanted to show you some more Pyrex finds!

My mom picked up these "spring blossom green" casserole dishes for $2 each today! I think she was partially trying to make up for the fact that she went thrifting without me! Haha.

My dad surprised me with this aqua casserole last night. I spotted it last week at an antique mall and he knew that I really wanted it. It looks brand new!!! He said it was an early birthday gift.

My parents are awesome. :)

I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's recent finds! :D So fun!

Thanks for reading.

Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! It has been awhile since I have posted...and I have somewhat lost track of my new finds! :) So, it is time for me to catch up. :)

I was really excited about Christmas this year. Even more so than usual. :) It was my first Christmas being married, and even though my husband was not home this year, the excitement is already building for next year. I have bought some very cute Christmas goodies.

My Christmas display of some vintage Pyrex! :)

This year, I started collecting vintage glass ornaments. My collection so far...LOVING the colors.

I made mini snow-scapes! :)

I also discovered that I love these little Christmas ornaments. These were some finds from a thrift store.

I. Love. Santa. Mugs. :) These were only 49 cents each!!!

And I can't forget about these little guys. Maybe I'll use them in some homemade snowglobes next year. I was very excited to find the Shiny Brite ones still in the packages!

I bought this cute little postcard and put it in a frame with some scrapbooking paper. I love it. The whole thig cost about $2 to make. :) Thrift store picture frame!

I have discovered vintage suitcases! I want to buy about 4 more so I can stack them to make a cute endtable. These cost $11 each.

I bought this Le Creuset Dutch oven for $10 at a local flea market!!!!!!! Bought the butter dish for $3.

Vintage Pyrex, Fiesta, and more...

I finally found a spring blossom green pan!!!! I've been hoping to find one. This one was $6.50.

Found these two pans, too. The large pan was $8.50 and the small one was $5.50.

Part of my updated collection!

I hope everyone is doing GREAT! :)

Thanks for looking. :)
