I found the syrup pitcher at a community thrift shop and also the Old Town blue cups. Speaking of the cups....I couldn't really look at them because they were tapped together in a pack of four, so when I got home I saw that I had 3 cups with the design and a plain white one! I was a bit pissed off! But what the....Maybe some good soul will adopt them.....LOL
The divided snack dish came from the Salvation army and required a lot of elbow grease.....It was so dirty, and even showed signs of cigarette burns! But with a good soaking and scrubbing, it came out just like new!
I just fell in love with the turquoise salad servers(also from the Salvation Army)....They were so vintage! And really clean....And I'm happy to report that they found a good home!!!
Last pale blue piece, still from the Salvation Army, is what I call a candy dish.....It could be used for a vase, a planter, a catchall.
I just find the shape delightful....I would keep everything....but it has been made clear that we need room! LOL
I sure hope the rest of the month will bring me plenty of finds and that March will be even better!
Pyrex has been scarce lately.....And either the piece is too expensive or in really bad shape....
I have been hunting for some Fry Glass pieces, for my Dad and so far I have found a very nice casserole with lid and craddle and 2 custard cups.But that is for another post......

I don't know where that tradition (or superstition) came from but for about the last 10 years I have been having at least 1 pancake or crepe on every friday th 13th.
Legend has it that if you eat a pancake on friday the 13th you will have enough money throughout the year to pay the bills.
So what's not to love about that?
The bills get paid and you get to enjoy a delicious piece of carb heaven....with butter and maple syrup not table syrup or pole syrup(telephone pole syrup!). Boy do I love pancakes!
Not a lot of pancakes have crossed my hungry lips since I have been following the writings of Master Weight Watchers, but after a loss of 13 pounds it is well worth it and I will truly savour this splurge.
I have been encouraging all my friends to follow this delicious tradition but since most of your work friends just vanish when you loose your job (It's not just my job to call you people), I decided to write a post about it and spread the word!
So have yourself a couple of pancakes or crepes suzettes or flapjacks as long as it is round it will do the trick!!!

I just love that ying yang snack set with the rack! And what about that doll! How wonderfully tacky is it??? LOL
At 1 PM we had recrossed the bridge and at the Canadian custom the agent asked us where we had been....we went to Massena and she said "What for?" we were curious. "did you buy something?" Yes a giant ruler, a bottle of face toner and a saucer for the cats. She just laughed and wished us a nice day!!! We were glad to be back in Cornwall.....But that is for another post! LOL

I included pictures of the process. I initially decide to cut the oranges with my el cheapo mandoline but I reduced the hald orange to pulp....So I used my trusty santoku knife (it's a farberware nothing expensive or fancy but a really good knife!)
