Double Fisted Starbucks, a Couple Flea Markets, and Some Pyrex

_MG_4989.jpgEarlier in the week I met up with a few friends to trade Pyrex. We live all live in different areas, so we can hit up a lot of different thrift stores between the three of us. Well, we met at Starbucks and then moved on to a few flea markets. It was fun to look around and get ideas for DIY projects. Look at this old drawer that was turned into a coffee table.
_MG_4981-1-2.jpgHeather found some Jadeite. She also had to have two Starbucks' drinks because one just wasn't enough. ;) Okay, she was actually kind enough to carry my drink since I was pushing a stroller without a cup holder. It makes her look like an addict though, doesn't it?
_MG_4982.jpgThis little dish was just beautiful. We oohed and ahhed over it, then put it back.
_MG_4985-1-2.jpgI made a new friend. I tried to convince her to come home with me and become my nanny, but she just wouldn't talk to me.
_MG_4987.jpgKel found a couple cute dishes while my children were checking out the deer mounted on the wall. There were many random and strange things to see at the flea market.
_MG_4994.jpgHere are all of my fun dishes. I actually only ended up buying two. The other ones were given to me. I say it was great trading day for me.

Ok, I have a question. I love your Pyrex dishes, and want to start collecting my own. I saw some at Goodwill today, but they didn't have lids. Do you buy them without lids? Can you get new lids? Or can you use them without lids? And what are your categories for purchasing them? Hm. That's a lot of questions, not just one. Sorry. I'd love to hear more about your collecting!

This was fun!

I'm glad you took a picture of that drawer turned coffee table! I was trying to explain it to Justin since I'm going to insist that he re-create it for me...

You guys are giving me a Pyrex problem, so thanks for that. It's like a disease, but it's so pretty.
