Work has been nothing but horrific to say the least.
It is bad when you text each other at 10pm and ask if you were able to make up the stairs to get to bed?
Most of us get up at 4am to get to work you see.
So my Girlfriends and I from working are more than ready to go
It is not easy for the 3 of us to get a Friday off but we did, to go to the broom corn festival in Arcola IL, preceded by a Old Route 40 drive where we stop at every small town with a antique shop.
I love hunting for each of us.
Last week I was at 1515 for our family Reunion and found these
a set of Butterprint mixing bowls in perfect shape for $30
so after a text message or 2 I brought them home for my friend.
She has most pieces now
exchange at work, how do you like our sheet backdrop?
She will be trying to find that darn butterprint butterdish!
In the mean time my friend in Charleston texted me while at the auction
"Is a Pyrex white bowl with yellow dots a collectors piece?'
so she got the one like this for $1
I guess I will be looking now for the red and green dots too.
She also pulled this our of her cabinet once to give to us.
a yellow butterprint Cinderella!
she also had a turquoise loaf pan she gave to Patty and then the Sputnik piece came from auction.
Do you forget what pieces you have?
I did a quick inventory at 1515
I have 6 friendship casseroles in various sizes and in yellow, red and the print.
My Friend found some and I got 3 at auction.
Now if I could find the bowl set and that elusive lasagna dish!
We also like promotional pieces
like my $8 salad bowl
and my favorite my $5 black rooster
My one friend has pink gooseberry, clear bottom and has one more to get her pink set.
The other has dots, stripes and sunflower
My only regret...........
I got the sunflower set at auction for $2.50!
why did I not keep them, I gave them to my friend and she gave them to someone else.
So all 3 of us now want these.
I also love the Christmas pieces..
poinsettia I use at Christmas for my cheese dip
and a blue snowflake divided dish. I found the holder later.
So we are ready to go again!
Here is what we found in 2012
So what do you collect in Pyrex?
Or what is your best memory of Pyrex.
We wish we could all go on a trip to the Pyrex museum in Washington State,
but IL will have to do for now!
