For the love of Pyrex..

Cindy and I both collect Pyrex,

thru good fortune and good luck, we don't collect the same

patterns.

We are always keeping out an eagle eye to add to our own patterns

as well for each other.

I have recently added Opal White to my collection as it goes so beautifully

with the tourquoise and pink I collect here for our home

in BC.

Warmer colors such as the butterfly gold and orange are for our

AZ. home..

Cindy has gifted me many new pieces which I adore!

Thank you my sweet pyrex collecting

friend!

Cindy included another
Amish Butterprint refrigeration dish!
A little bird, a pink plate and matching bowl as well as two beautiful
Opal white bowls.
They go so well with everything!
Cindy also gifted me these resturant ware plates,
Opal white drink glasses
as well as the pink resturant ware bowl..
Does it get better than this.
I think not!
 
Love these paint by numbers and these beautiful
Butterfly Gold Pyrex.

Pale and delicate...

Hellebore.
One of the first flowers of spring, so sweet and pale.
Must have a few flowers indoors, always a delight!
Finding all my crocheted flowers,
It is good to be back, it's like a treasure hunt, trying to remembering where all of
my yarn and hooks hide.

Home again..

Unpacking, shopping, making dinner,

catching up with family, friends and neighbours

all makes us glad to

be back at our home in BC.

They garden will be tidied up over the next few days,

garden centres visited, a few new plants purchased

and put into the soil as soon as the

chance of frost has passed.

Strawberries and tulips brighten any day

and better yet, using my newly acquired pyrex.

It is truly good to be back to our summer home.

Heading home....

Blue skies, rain, sleet, snow, wind and then again sunshine travelled with

us all the way from Idaho Falls to Post Falls.

There are quite a few amazing Antique shops along this route.

Small off the road towns worth taking a short detour for.

Jim's ability to spot Pyrex is increasing at every stop.

I think he will have almost enough credits

to last the summer..

Here are a few photos of some of the things we saw.

Two pieces were added to the pyrex collection.

Thrifting our way back to BC..

Very few thrift shops in the small towns we passed thru

where safe from me.

Jimmy earned lots of new credits!

Although I only found 2 pyrex lids, my thrifting buddy Cindy well knows that for both of us,

it is the thrill of the hunt.

Here are a few treasures I found but did not come home with me.
