My dilemma

Hubby and I have been married for 32 years this month. In all those years, he has gotten me an Easter basket every Easter. He fills the basket with goodies like the speckled eggs and Junior Mints and Milky Ways. He has always found unique items as my basket. Items ranging from laundry hampers to picnic baskets.

I saw a picture the other day where Practice in Time used Pyrex to decorate for Easter. I showed it to hubby and said isn't this cute? He replied "Okay, I get the hint." I asked him what he meant and he said he knows I showed it to him to let him know my Easter basket this year better be a Pyrex bowl. That was not my intention, but hey, I'll take it. 

So he decided since he knows next to nothing about Pyrex and what my wish list is or where to go to find the right piece, he would let me find it and he would buy it and put it up until Easter. So I've been looking at some local antique stores. Here is where the dilemma comes in. There are some pieces I love that are on my wish list that I found locally at a good price. So now I have to decide. Do I want to get the largest Cinderella bowl in the Sunflower pattern? I have been looking for something in this pattern, but I really don't want any more Cinderella's.

Then there was the deep baking pan in the yellow. But if he's going to buy me something, I would rather it have a pattern. 

So I have narrowed it down to these two that I saw at a store for a good price. 

My dilemma is to pick which one. I really love the black but do I really want snowflakes for an Easter basket.

And since the pink daisy has been on my wish list for awhile, I think that is what I choose. It did not have a lid, but I have a spare lid I got for .25 at a yard sale in the hopes of finding the bowl to go with it and I think this may be it. Now just to keep my fingers crossed that they still have it. 

Once I finally decided which one I wanted, he decided he wants to go to Jonesborough, TN on our anniversary which is during the week before Easter. They have tons of antique stores. But it has been awhile since we have been there and I'm not sure if I want to wait and see if I find something there I like better or not. 

So I've been tossing around the dilemma of whether or not to get the pink daisy I know I can get and know I want really bad or to wait and see what they have in Jonesborough. I'll have to think about it.

Thanks for the shout out! Seeing that photo of my decorations from last year reminds me that I have to get out some of those again this year. I have some up already but am using my Fire King Peach Blossom instead of Pyrex.

I would definitely get the pink daisy (and the snowflakes as well ;)!
