Vintage finds and deliciousness!

Well, I finally have something to post on the Pyrex front!

There I was last thursday minding my own business at Renaissance thrift store....Really I was really on the hunt for some trashy tacky stuff for WTF? Tuesday! And I saw this...

Now I know I've said it before...this is not my fave pattern, but this little guy looked lonely and at .59 cents I didn't think twice.

Here it is with my other thrifty find...

 A scorpio mug from Federal Glass.

I ran back to the car like a maniac! Imagine a Pyrex I don't have....the fever is trechterous...I start yearning for patterns I didn't really care for!

Now at Vonlipi's house of Pyrex (lol) we have been checking off things from the to do list (and trust me the list is L-O-N-G!

I finally make the list of parts to buy to install the dining room lamp. We bought said parts and with some help (mainely on the mental side) I was able to install this:

Ok I admit it doesn't look like much in daylight and I had to get used to it...

But at night YAOWZAA!


It looks much better in person and makes a real groovy motif on the ceiling.

It is just the kind of light we were looking for!

Financial breakdown

Rattan lampshade (thrifted) 3$
Lamp hanging kit 15$
Lamp hanging experience priceless

Total 18$ plus the pesky tax

I'll say it's  a great thrifty deal!

Have a great night

Who do you think will be winning DWTS?

Personnaly it's a toss between Rob and J.R (sorry Ricki)

I know what you mean about buying a pattern you're not crazy about when you are desperate for a Pyrex purchase - I bought an Old Orchard casserole which I said I never would!!! Forest Fancies is not so bad...

Hoping for JR and Karina...

Oh you could not leave that Pyrex there for 59 cents! I have some Old Orchard and not my fav but it is Pyrex! I voted for JR!!

You could spray paint it. I never cease to be amazed at how one can transform things with spraypaint. :)
