Someone's Listening....

I have no real good reason that I have not posted in 16 days.

All I have to say is that August flew by and lots is happening around these parts.

Personally and professionally I have been super busy and managed to read two books since the last time I posted on here.

Oops! Please forgive a busy girl.

When I started this blog, it was intended for entertaining and all things related to the before subject.

I have somehow managed to blog about my opinions, interests, and family more than entertaining.

Oh Hells Bells! Who the heck cares, right?

As long as I offer something that is carefree, you don't mind right?

At least, I hope.

This month, I learned a few things but mainly ONE thing that stands out.

Some ONE is listening to my wants, needs, prayers.

Actually, a few are.

Let me explain.

Last year while antiquing in North Carolina I came across some vintage pyrex mixing bowls that were a set of multi-color bowls.

I fell in love with them and even though, I did not purchase them that day I could not get them out of my mind.

I mentioned them to my fantastic mother in-law and surprisingly Christmas morning, Santa Stace delivered them to me!


I was so excited! How did she find the exact ones! Turns out, she had them in her china cabinet and I had never noticed!
She also gave me these.
I love these for appetizer dips and for small leftovers.

Then after telling a friend about my "awesome" mixing bowls she mentioned that her sister had a similar casserole dish that she disliked that I would most likely love!

Score for me!

So this month, the above mentioned friend came to visit me, she arrived bearing gifts.

None other, than with the yellow casserole dish. Clear lid and All!

These things are like candy to me!

My in-laws came to visit that same week and also came bearing gifts.

Two more Vintage Pyrex dishes that she found at a local garage sale!

Who would throw/give these away!

They are heirlooms that can be passed down!

In my opinion.

I realize that most people do not get as excited about these as I do. But I am loving all of my vintage dishes.

They are circa 1950's.....

One square and one oval!

How fun!

I am so excited by all this COLOR!

I cannot wait to use all of these!

Someone WAS listening.

This made me realize that I am surrounded by wonderful people that feel I deserve gifts.

Thank you for all these splendid gifts and for all the great finds.

One man's trash is another's Jackpot!

I just found this blog completely dedicated to PYREX!

I'm in love!

Check it out, I want to decorate my "apt" in all Pyrex! I love all things vintage.

There is something to be said about things that have a story and have been around a while.

I am in love with all of the rooster, wheat, corn, patterns.

I've got to get more!

Love love love.

I know, I'm an old soul.

I can't help it!

Thank you again to all of you who love me enough to bring me Pyrex!

Love Vintage Pyrex Girl,
