Yes, it is all YOUR fault. Ok, it started with me as I loved my Mums Pyrex mixing bowls, I thought it might be nice to have a set as I used to bake with them as a kid. It should have ended there with the bowls, it should have but it didn’t. Once I started blogging a whole new world of Pyrex opened up to me, the gorgeous colours and the patterns. I mean, I don’t have to feel guilty collecting Pyrex because it is useful and cheap (mostly) but my cupboards are filling up. Last week my sister and I stopped off at Savers which is a new thing to South Australia (actually the only one in SA). I found the Pyrex below for $3-$4 each and I couldn’t help myself. I love them all apart from the blue and white, I just like that one. Probably should have left it there. See what you Pyrex lovers have done to me, I think I might be a little Pyrex mad!
I love the pattern on this dish.
My Nana and Pa had a gorgeous huge red club lounge suite when I was young. In the 80’s they replaced it with a modern two seater and two recliners. They covered it in white sheets to protect it. I remember saying to my Dad that they might as well have kept the old lounge and covered it in sheets. To my horror he told my Nana this, I was so embarrassed. When they went on their annual six week caravan holiday to the coast they had an unexpected house sitter. A possum had ventured down the chimney, made a huge mess and unfortunately passed away in their lounge room. "See! This why we have sheets on the lounge" I was told. Hee, hee.
My Nana came over from Wales when she was seven and went back for a holiday in her older years. She brought home a heap of tea towels and so the sheets came off the lounge and the tea towels went on (as a head rest). I must say that I thought it was a much better idea, at least you could see the new lounge. I remember her having this one so I had to grab it (it's never been used either, just like hers!). She was a fantastic Nana with a cheeky spark.
This short glass vase is a cutie and I like having vases in the cupboard (Mr M likes glass also so I can use that as an excuse).
I also picked up a Holly Hobbie sheet but the pic keeps going sideways so I am giving up on that one. Have listed it on eBay.
The week that was:
I hit the town with my sister and her friend and some of our cousins on Saturday night. Well it has been about 5 years in between nightclub drinks for this old duck. My cousin (pictured) and I used to hit the town every weekend from 18 to early twenties but these days it's nappies and snot instead. We had a blast even though we were with young chickies of 24-30 that made us feel very old indeed.

Have a great week!
