Out with the old....

Dad had a LOT of plumbing issues.....

The faucets are either dripping. leaking or threatening to fall off....

I fixed the handheld shower with a new bargain hose from Ebay...That was an easy fix!

Then we had this...

  I hate pedestal sinks....
and this one had seen better days....
The faucet was so loose. We were sure, we
would break it off....
We would not use the sink because of it

Here is the new sink, faucet and vanity!
YAY!!! for us!
No more crowded sink!

What's New

I have been weeding out the Pyrex....What else is new? LOL

I have a new friend who is seriously addicted to Pyrex, I found her on Facebook...She has been very nice and very happy to buy some of my Pyrex.

 4 cups and saucers, Lime Pyrex dinnerware

 Vintage casserole, in box with pamphlet

Promo casserole with caddy. I like to call that one
Butterprint because of the roosters that are found on the Butterprint pattern.

It seems that spring has finally arrived in  Montreal!
We rushed to the hardware store
and got those sweet turquoise chairs....
replacing the ricketty and rotten ones Dad had before.

I can't wait to see the garden in bloom!

Stay thrifty, stay well

This what I was greeted with yesterday morning.....

 Yessss siree bob! SNOW
Real F.... snow!
Do i need to remind you that it is APRIL! 

 This morning it is snowing again...
I am happy to have chili in my lunch box!

 This clock is on my vintage bucket list...
The Molson Export clock could be seen in many bars and restaurant in the 60's
and 70's . I want mine with hands and no cracks...

                                  I was looking at my Pyrex the other and found that these 2 casseroles                        
weren't giving me as much joy as before!

Through the magic of Facebook, I was able to
find a new home for them in Quebec City.
Money in my pocket, a new friend and space to display
more vintage glassware!

Well dear readers, thank you for reading and commenting.

Hearing from you always makes my day!
