My broken find....

My first Pyrex tragedy.... :( I had my wonderful butter dish on the top of my shelves while I was cleaning up the dining room the other day and while I was scooting a chair in, the vibrations of the chair rumbled the cabinet and the poor thing fell to the floor and shattered into a million little pieces. I was sad, but the good thing about it is the lid is still intact, so I just need to find a new base. Still, it's hard to see something to useful broken.

14 miles find

This morning I ventured out to run 14 miles. I did it, it took me 2 hours and 49 minutes, but I did it. :) My reward? Pyrex! :) I found a couple cups and two bowls. This yellow cup I've been eyeballing for a while at Thrift Town, but I wasn't sure if I wanted to get it cause it wasn't labeled "Pyrex" it was just Corning. But, I said screw it, I like the cup....who cares if it's not "Pyrex". It looks like it. Plus, It'll make an awesome hot chocolate mug this winter. Mmmmm.... hot cocoa. I can't wait for the weather to cool down more.

Lotsa new finds!

I was in need of a good Pyrex fix yesterday, so I loaded up the kids and went to the nearest DI. I was so lucky to find these! $8.50 for all of it (all in perfect condition), not too shabby. :)

I was SOOO excited to see this one. It's in PERFECT condition! No scratches, totally shiny... LOVE it! It's a smaller bowl, I used it for salad last night. :)

I thought these cups were a little interesting. There were 3 cups and they look exactly alike, but 2 of them say Corning and only 1 says Pyrex. I wonder why?
I don't normally do the clear Pyrex, but I've seen a couple nice bowls and things with this blue tint to it and it has the little ripples, so I picked this one up. It was only $1.50 and it's a good size too.
My second plate. It's a little bigger than the other one. I really like these plates. They're so heavy duty. I wish I could find more of them. 

It was just what I needed finding these. They're so pretty!
