Feeding the addiction...

I have a really hard time passing up Pyrex or Anchor Hocking Fire King pieces at thrift stores that are reasonably priced and in good condition. Either they will end up in my (ever-growing) Pyrex collection if it's a pattern I'm collecting or it will end up in my Etsy shop, ready to make it's way to a new home.

This week I was checking out the local thrift store and there it was... a #402 yellow (1.5 quart) Pyrex New Dots bowl. I turned the bowl over to check the price... a mere 75 cents! I quickly snatched it up, somewhat in disbelief that no one else had.

Then something else caught my eye... peach lusterware. I've been collecting this for just over a year now. It was an Anchor Hocking Fire King 1.5 quart Oval Casserole with the original lid! (It's pretty rare to find original lids) That I snapped up for $2.50. I'm thinking that both dishes will stay put in my kitchen for awhile. :)

A couple weeks earlier, I stumbled across this blue and white Pyrex 1.5 quart Oval Casserole for $2.50. It isn't a pattern I instantly recognized, so I'll need to do a little more research. If anyone knows what this pattern is called, I'd be happy for the info. Not sure yet if this one will stay in my kitchen or get listed in my shop...

***UPDATE: This pattern is called Horizon Blue.***

Have a great weekend!

Fall Vintage Wardrobe Ideas

Like it or not we know that our summer season is coming to an end!

Here are some wonderful pieces that would be a great addition to your fall and winter wardrobe.

This colorful scarf would add great fall color to a plain t-shirt or office blouse.

This Borglaska faux fur is very plush and soft in dark rich brown and has the look of sheared beaver. Just the coat to snuggle into when the cold weather comes.

Here is a great navy slip to wear under a suit or it could be used as a slip/dress.

What about this wonderfully classic little purple jacket to brighten up your winter work wardrobe.

Have a great day and a great weekend!

The Maxi Dress

There's nothing better than loose flowing clothes to help you beat the heat in Summer. The Maxi Dress is a great, classic look perfect for the hot weather. It can be dressed up with a great pair of heels and jewelry, or dressed down with a casual pair of flip flops.

Here are a few great vintage pieces I came across this morning...

1970s 1980s Yellow Hippie Boho Summer Maxi Dress M L


Vintage 70s Blue Halter Neck Polka Dot Maxi Dress M

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Window Shopping With Me on Etsy for Decor

I love putting in a search on Etsy and window shopping. Today I did a search using "vintage" "decor". I came up with these amazing items that I would love to own! I hope they inspire you to go shopping for something you like or maybe even put something that you already own out on display in your home.

Nothing says Summer like Nautical... crisp, fresh, and simple. Lately, I've been seeing this trend everywhere. It is classic and never goes out of style. This is my nautical inspiration for this week...
