Happy Thursday everyone, Hanna here. I've had a busy week back at school, I've been really sick, but yesterday I finally felt well enough to thrift. I haven't been finding any goodies lately, and was really needing something to turn my week around. I quickly scooped up a few pieces of glassware that are headed straight to Ebay, but then found a few goodies for myself also.A Hazel Atlas turquoise stripped glass that was in the bathroom section, I wouldn't have known to pick it up if Sister didn't have a set of red ones! An orange chopper, it's important to keep to my color theme. Lastly, I found a light pink Fire King mug for Sisterita, a little Valentine's Day treat.
I also got this big square pillowcase. I'm going to need Sister's magic to clean it, but the embroidery was so pretty.
Don't you think?
I also picked up a few crafty little things. The lace I have few ideas for. More importantly is the knitting needle. Did you know I decided to teach myself to knit over winter break? It was a long, frustrating process involving YouTube, wine, and mischievous cats and a dog very interested in what their Mom was doing. I haven't created anything too exciting yet, but my failed first project turned into a neck warmer for miss Marley. Don't judge, the quality is sad, but I had to do something with this first attempt.
The most exciting part of my visit to Goodwill was when I was approached by a fellow shopper. She asked if I was one of the Pyrex Sisters and I couldn't believe it. Her name was Debbie and she was just the sweetest lady. We got to chat for a little bit and it was so rewarding to meet someone who follows our blog. We started it not thinking anything of it and we've now created this network of friends that love what we love and it is just amazing. So, thanks Debbie for your kind words, and you're right, us Pyrex girls (and boys) need to stick together!
One last thing. I forgot to share a piece of Pyrex that Sister got me for Christmas and so I used it last night so I could show it off.
Isn't she pretty? Thanks Sister, I've longed for the Bluebird for a very long time.
Until next time!
