Friday's Find #128

Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! After the holidays, it takes me a little time to settle into the new year, but I'm getting there.   Is it the same for you?  It appears that after two and half years of posting weekly on Fridays, I'm all out of catchy titles, so from now on I'll be numbering. Can you believe today is the 128th Friday's Find?  Here are this week's fab features...

Friday's Find #128  Vintage salt and peppers, Dynaware and Pyrex

Have you been taking advantage of Christmas clearance? Now's the time--especially at the thrift stores!  I had my eye on this pretty needlepoint angel stocking before it was marked down. Even though it is personalized, I have a plan...;)

This whimsical quilted snowman was also Christmas clearance.  It's tiny, but if you look closely the heart at the top of the wire hanger reads Let it snow!  SOLD!

I found a whole bag of these delicate porcelain roses--aren't they gorgeous?  I am not sure how I will use them yet, but I'm sure inspiration will come eventually... Update: see how I used them here.

Does the fact that I have a Pinterest board named Pyrex Passion give you a hint about my feelings for it? My earliest memories of Pyrex involve eating homemade banana pudding from my maternal grandmother's refrigerator dishes--thus a love affair began! I adore the vintage patterns and also sell it.  Don't you love the aqua tinted glass of these ramekins? Available.

I think the pretty brown floral pattern on these PyroRey Dynaware custard cups is so sweet.  The milk glass was manufactured in Mexico in the 1960s.  SOLD!

Last but not least, are these rustic vintage salt and peppers.  For my fellow jadeite lovers out there--the color complements the dishes nicely!  Available.

  1. Oh, I just love vintage stockings! Yours is a beauty. I love to shop the after Christmas sales but then I talk myself out of buying because I have so much!

  2. Great buys Cecilia ... can't wait to see what you do with the roses. Love the stocking too.

  6. Those roses are great and I am sure will be embellishing a few things...maybe a springtime wreath?
