Some things I want to share....


I have a few things I want to share with you from the past couple of weeks that I hadn't shared yet. 

First, my niece Amy sent me this beautiful piece of Pyrex. I am collecting the primary colors bowls. She found the red one in an antique shop near her home and snatched it up to send me. I love it. 


Now I have three of the four pieces. Just keeping my eyes open for the green one and I'll have the complete set. I love when there is some wear and tear. It shows how much the piece was used. I like to think about all the things that were mixed or served in these old bowls. 


I recently posted that I would love to find the Corelle Indian Summer plate. On a recent trip to Heartland Antiques, they not only had the plates but they had the cups as well. So I now have one set for myself. Hubby still wants to stick with his favorite plate. However, they had over 20 of the plates and over 20 of the cups. Even had some of the saucers. I may go back and pick up a few more so I can have them for the grandkids to eat on when they visit. 


I'm reading a book that I had bought not too long ago. I wanted to put it up and read it during the Christmas holidays. But the longer I waited the more I wanted to read it so I started reading it yesterday. It is the 20th book from The Virgin River series. I have read every single one of them. I feel like I personally know everyone in town and would love to vacation there. 


This past Saturday when I was running around with my sister, she stopped in Rack Room shoes. Check out these boots. I fell in love with them. I may have to add these to my wish list. They are just too cute for words. 


I have been looking at my Pyrex collection. When I started it, I just collected anything I found that was a reasonable price. Since then, I realized how much I love to actually use what I bought. Since I am limited on how much room I have to store things, I have decided to part with a couple of pieces. That way I can make room for more of the bowls that I like. I thought I would like the divided vegetable serving dishes, but I don't. So I'm going to part with the Square Flowers Verde dish.


And the Early American dish with the lid. Now I just have to figure out the best way to sale them and a reasonable price for them. 


I had a comment yesterday asking if my new tea books had any scone recipes. They happened to have two different ones so I thought I would share them. 



Have a happy over the hump day.

I love the books by Robyn Carr. Excellent author.

I have a red dish just like that that I received as a wedding shower gift over 50 some years ago. Still like new.
