Estate Finds and More

I went home to 1515 last weekend and my girlfriends gave me $$ to hunt for Pyrex!
But I found a few other things.

On Saturday morning one of my friends and I ran to an estate sale. They had Pyrex, but no the patterns I was looking for.
But I found a few things....
1943 Christmas Carol book $5

Vase $2

But my favorite buy...
Is she not adorable?
here was the tag underneath...they must of paid $5 for it when they bought it.
I was excited because I have a boy pixie that matches her that belonged to my Grandmother!
I do not seem to have a picture of him to show you.

There was a nice new consignment store in Charleston and I got a vintage vase

Now on to the Pyrex!
For myself because they were so cheap $2 with perfect lids.
Boots wanted in the picture, he is taking up for my poor Pinky pooh :(
A couple of years ago I broke my 1 1/2 Quart bowl, found this at my friends store.
Now my crazy daisy Cinderella bowl set is complete again

Now for my friends
Charcoal casserole in great shape with a perfect lid

Divided turquoise snowflake with lid
both pieces
Check it out it was 1/2 price!
both for $17.08!
one more

Turquoise snowflake
My friend was thrilled...I got the 3 pieces for under $25

It was a fun weekend

and in case you missed my last post
my wheelbarrow I bought myself

It was a good weekend for hunting!

Great finds! We really love the little wheelbarrow and the Chrismas Carol book is darling :)

Wow- You found some great finds. I did not know that Pyrex ever came in a charcoal color. I love it. That little pixie is really cute, too.

I have 3 or 4 of those exact Christmas carol booklets. I was actually thinking of framing one to put out for Christmas next year.

Hope you have a great Friday-xo Diana

You been at it again. Thanks so much for the most beautiful Easter Card and my wonderful St.Louis and Mississippi River post cards for the doll house. I just placed them in the doll house library. The doll house is going home today where it will live in the library at, My Old Historic House. Love and Sissy Kisses. Richard

Well, I may have to hire you to do some shopping for me, with bargains like that.
Love the wheel barrow. That is just too cute. Good thing you saw it before me...

Well, I have no idea why your blog wasn't updating on my sidebar. I just thought you need some time off. Now I get in here and there are so many posts I need to catch up on!
