Isn't it just gorgeous!!

Happy Halloween :)
I paid a little more than I would've liked for them but they are in great shape, they're the exact school bus yellow I love and my birthday is Tuesday. I've scored some pieces for one or two dollars so I figure it all evens out.

This is what I came away with...A Town and Country 444, a Daisy 472 and 473, a turquoise Butterprint 475, a Snowflake Blue oval casserole dish (which I had no idea even existed before then), and a charcoal snowflake space saver (to replace the one I re-homed a few months back and decided I really missed).
I was so excited to find the Butterprint 475. Now the 474 is at the top of my wish list, so I can complete the set. Even though I love collecting some of the more rare dishes, Butterprint has always been one of my favourite patterns..roosters, farmers, wheat stalks, turquoise and white..how could it not be?
I've been really into these opaque lids lately, Daisy and Friendship especially so I jumped on these dishes. I definitely over paid for the two with bottoms, but I still paid less than I would have online (shipping to Canada is painful!) and I have been looking for them for about a year with no luck so I justified the splurge.
It was so much fun to find Pyrex in person again, and to spend an afternoon hunting through vintage and antique goodies. My fiance even found a few treasures, including a birthday gift for a friend and a new Flinstones mug for himself (yabba dabba doo I love drinking from you!).

I didn't think it could get better than the aqua and orange combo but adding the school bus/daisy/citrus yellow really does it for me. I love it!
I've slowed down on collecting, I actually have the will to say no to pieces now. I'd like to cobble together a set of bowls with the two 403's I have (orange and yellow) and I don't think I can ever say no to a fridgie...oh and if I found large orange utility pan I certainly won't turn it down.

this #444 Gooseberry, outside is in superb condition, but there are utensil marks on the inside. Pics available.
Also, this promotional Meadow casserole with lid. Casserole itself is in absolute amazing condition. The lid has a small issue, about 2-3 cm on the inside of the lid a small crack? or something. It's no biggie & isn't too noticeable.
Local trades only - Toronto. I can only travel on the subway line. I will be coming to Montreal & Windsor within the next two weeks.
My interests: butterprint, gooseberry, pink, aqua, fridgies, dots.
Very good to excellent condition only.
Let me know!!

P.S. If you live in the Greater Toronto Area and have thrifted something mysterious and/or dark, please click here. There is a show being developed and they want to hear from you. Too bad the show's not being shot in the Southern States or New England. There would be a lot more stuff. Cheers,

Mod kitchen - is in my kitchen!!! I don't care that it doesn't have the lid or the cradle - I love it and I love the price even better - $2.99 at Value Village - I couldn't get to it fast enough - it was a little dirty but it cleaned up really nice.
What's even more amazing about it is the date on the tag - 09/19 - it must have been waiting for me because that's two weeks ago - why, why, did nobody snatch that up before I spotted it yesterday.
This 441 Butterprint Cinderella didn't even make it onto the shelf - I grabbed it from the cart - $1.99
At another stop I found this great 2 litre juice carafe - I have the smaller size but this will be so much better as it will actually hold a whole container of juice! Price - $1.
That Mod Kitchen just made my day!!
I'm going to blog about some other treasures on my blog

So after the auction she came in and she was showing me all her goodies and said I got this for you OMg as they say I was so excited just to get something pyrex and it was nice my special friend was thinking of me.
I have homemade chocolate chip cookies in it right now and going to use it for a refrigerator dish, I'm going back to glass dishes for the fridge

I got the mother-lode of pyrex refrigerator dishes. The only downside is that they were all FILTHY! All of them had dried baked food crusts and a film of brown scum -- the kind that some old people have in their houses when they just don't clean well...for years. I wasn't sure if the it was dirt on them or if the finish was gone, but decided to take my chances.
I got these great fridgies and a percolator (with no inside parts)...
|I've never seen this pattern before. It's a fired on white finish with gold painted pinecones. The pinecones are on the lid, too. Can you tell me the pattern name?|
|FINALLY everything was clean!|
