Just makes me smile!
I have quite a large Pyrex collection, and I remember the first vintage piece I bought. It was the small blue mixing bowl that goes with the primary set, bought right after I got married just because my husband didn't think my bowls were big enough to eat cereal out of. I now have two complete primary sets, I can never pass those bowls up when I find them for just a dollar or two. And I love my pink gooseberry and turquoise butterprint, but if someone asked what would I really like to find, the answer would be Christmas Pyrex. These two pictures below? They're mine!
This is a big 2 1/2 quart casserole called golden poinsettias. Earlier this week I came down with a terrible cold, and leaving for work early to stop and get some medicine at Walgreen's, I still had a few minutes to kill. Handy that Goodwill was right across the street. :) I spied this as soon as I walked in the door and made a beeline to it. Seeing the $8 price tag kind of irked me. Our Goodwill folks have recently discovered the value of Pyrex, and mark it higher than anything else in the store. When I got to the check out, the lady told me since it had a yellow tag, it was half price, yay! I'm already planning what goodies will be cooked in this Christmas season.
Four quart mixing bowl "golden leaf".
I found this at a garage sale this summer ($2 I think) and was thrilled! Couldn't believe the luck, I had no idea I'd find that casserole in just a couple of months. This one has already been used to make a big batch of chocolate chip cookies before it found a home in one of the cupboards (it's getting harder to find spots!).
And the Christmas quilt, rows all sewn together, yay! I should note that this is not my pattern, or something I made up. You can find it here. Did you ever see a quilt, or something else and want to make one JUST LIKE IT? That's what this was for me. I did change the dimensions a little, the original quilt was 60" x 60", mine should finish at 54" x 78", after I add a 4" border all around. I wanted something to cover me from chin to toes, and also my 6' 3" husband. Last year she put the pattern on sale a little closer to Christmas, that's when I got mine. ;)
Some more cute blocks, just because I love 'em so!
I made an apron out of this fabric two years ago, love it!

And a scottie (of course!)
