Sometimes I find that I'm lacking inspiration...It's not that I have nothing to write....but I doubt the interestingness of it all.
I would like to thank some of my blogger friends CSM (Crazy Suburban Mom) http://www.crazysuburbanmom.com/ and Erin at http://torontoyardsaler.blogspot.com/ for mentionning my blog. It's always nice to realize that actual people read what I write! There's always the hit counter but....Speaking of the hit counter, it freaked out this week and went from 4000 something to more than 11,000!!! What the???
Ok now for the real reason for this post: Cliff's antiques! Situated on rte 1 in Scarborough Maine, my father refers to it as the dirty flea market. Dirtier than the one in Oxford (the Undercover flea market). So this year it was really funny 'coz Dad kept saying: You know, it is much cleaner than I remember!
2 Yeard ago I scored some of my first Pyrex. The big yellow 404 from the Primary set 6$, my Butterprint frigie set (minus one small one) only 10$ and a Blue Snowflake casserole with decorated lid 7$. Last year Dad got me the very now famous Mad Men casserole (space saver) green with the gold wheat. So of course I had HIGH expectations from this place....
I find that since I now have quite the collection, the missing pieces are harder to find! And this year it felt like someone sucked all the good Pyrex from Maine!
So I was quite sick of seeing all that Verde and Old Orchard! LOL
So I found the Old Town creamer 1$ and hiding inside another bowl, the Square Flower Green 402 1$. I was really happy to find these so cheap. Dad got me the Early American fridgie. The cat on the side looks just like Bob (my big hunter).
Dan got the bourbon glass for a cool 1$
This morning we painted the front porch and it looks so much better! This afternoon more basement cleaning!
