I stopped by Savers while running errands and found this guy. It was another pattern (Town and Country) I don't have. I love that I'm finding all these different patterns! Today I discovered that divided dishes like this one are perfect for when you're frying things and need a bowl for the egg mixture and one for the flour mixture. We made fried green tomatoes today and they were AMAZING!!! I'm so glad I had Pyrex to use for it. :)

Oooh, this is dangerous. Having a Savers less than 5 minutes from my house is not good for my collecting habit.
I found these two little pretties today. I was excited cause they were two that I didn't have and they were only $1.99 each.
I have a blue with white snowflake one like this. I'm excited to have one like this. It'll be fun to have out come Christmas time. :)
I did end up leaving 3 bowls that I already had, so, go me! :)

We went for a short Pyrex hunt today just to get out of the house. We went to a new Savers that was set up just down the road from us. I'm not always a fan of Savers just because they tend to be over priced, but I thought I'd look anyway.
I found a few good things...
I was in need of a new 1 cup measuring cup. I got an Anchor Hocking measuring cup set a year ago and all of the markings have come off of it. How are you supposed to measure things when there's no measurements?! Now I know why you choose Pyrex over Anchor Hocking! I was excited to spot a nice Pyrex measuring cup today. It was just what I needed!
Another thing about Savers... They put these HUGE price tags in random spots and its a PAIN to get them off. After peeling off as much as I could, I used some hot soapy water and a sponge and they came off pretty easy.
I saw this little gravy boat first and was debating on getting him just because of the $4 price tag, but he was too cute to pass up. He'll go well with the bowls I have of the Autumn Harvest pattern.
I looked through a couple other sections before finding this baby! I love the Friendship pattern and I can NEVER find it anywhere. It's also one of the only Pyrex I have with red on it. I wish I could find more red.
Not too bad for a 10 minute trip to the store! :)
