How are y’all enjoying your summer (those of you in my part of the world, that is)? We’re having a good one, though it’s going by quickly. Soon school will be back in session, so at the time this is being published, I’m actually away from the blog world and taking some time with my family. WordPress allows you to write and schedule ahead of time, so I’m still here, even though I’m not really here!
I have managed some junkin this summer, some thrift store visits, antique shops, and an estate sale (where I didn’t buy anything).
I was so tickled to find these Pyrex canisters at a thrift store! I’ve been seeing fellow bloggers and Flickr users post their pics of these pretty things over the years, but had never seen any in real life, anywhere at any price. Maybe they weren’t popular here in South Carolina? As you can see, one is already in use for tea bags, the other two are awaiting their assignments.
Isn’t that bear and log planter too darling? Another thrift store find. I’ll have to get one more of those air plants I wrote about recently for him.
Behind it all is the stained glass window I showed off already in late July. Here’s another look:
Another thrift store trip turned up this wonderful chrome bread box, and one more bowl to match the vintage Pyrex dinnerware I already had.
It just now occurs to me I haven’t shown y’all this Pyrex Friendship dish as an official “find” yet, though I did give a sneak peek last week. It’s the smaller one inside the larger lasagna pan (in the center).
I think that’s everything. I’m taking a couple of weeks off from blogging, but I’ve scheduled this and a few other things to post on “auto-pilot”, including the weekly History & Home Link Party on Tuesdays, so you won’t even know I’m offline! I’m planning to unplug completely, so I won’t be responding to comments right away. Maybe I’ll find more goodies during my break, or maybe I’ll give myself a junkin’ break, too, who knows?
