I did make a fun dish this week with Pyrex. Avocado salad yummy!!! I am trying to get in shape for the summertime And trying to eat healthy and I made avocado salad in my pink Pyrex bowl! It was delicious. I will be updating my blog over the weekend. Till then happy hunting!

So that is why I haven't posted and luckily my husband got me an iPhone for my birthday otherwise I'd really be out of touch with the world lol.

Birthday Weekend!

Well this Sunday (March 3rd) is my birthday and I will be turning 26, YIKES!
Time has flown by so quickly, I remember when I was 16!!!
Over the past few years I grew to LOVE and appreciate antiques. It is going to be 3 years I believe in May that my husband and I got bitten by the antique bug!
It is strange how things develop over time. My antique experience started off having my friend take me over to this place in NY called "Cold Spring". It is a cute little town with antique shops, she took my husband and I there and we fell in love, full force! I started off buying Milk Glass pieces, then she took us up to Red Hook NY where there are also a few antique stores, got more Milk Glass, I look back now I remember seeing tons of Pyrex but was not into then.
Then I started to collect depression glass (most of it is Pink). Then slowly got into Vintage jewelry....then clothing, then Pyrex! It has been a journey that is for sure!

I am loosing track of what I am trying to say, so anyway this is my birthday weekend and Sunday I am going antique shopping, what else?! That is what I love, and that is where I would like to spend my time on my Birthday. I HOPE I can find some awesome Pyrex piece I have been looking for, boy that would be such a great birthday gift! I will pray to the Pyrex gods that I can find something that will blow me away!
I was attempting to buy an early birthday gift for myself, a chip and dip balloon set with original box!!! In excellent condition, my bid was placed at $89 bucks, that is a lot already but was willing to splurge!

Of course I lost =( The winning bid was............get ready for this!

CRAZY!?! I love Pyrex but would never pay that! I have to come back to reality a bit and say it is still a bowl!

This person most likely will not be using it, not for almost 300 bucks!

Tax season is crazy sometimes, people spend it like crazy! They are lucky though, hopefully this weekend I can find one for way cheaper! and if not there is always 2 weeks away when I go to adamstown PA, ANTIQUE CAPITAL!

I will be posting some of my thrift finds from the past two weeks today,

until then happy thrifting!
