Today … of all days …

I’m in the mood to send out a post.  My logical side (is that left or right brain?) says “you can’t take time today, to write posts!!!  Your ladies are on the road, headed up for their annual July visit”.  The other side blurts “Yah, yah … I know … but”.

Logical: “NO but’s.  You’ve got laundry to do, beds to make, dusting and dishes.  And for pete’s sake scrub out that fridge and the bathtub!  Geesh!”

Other side:  “I can’t help it!  The pictures and writing are just working for me today.  I gotta do it!”

Logical: “Well, stop with the ‘buts’ and get your ‘butt’ going then!”

So loyal followers and readers, sharing some fantastic finds for you to drool over.

Added a new glass bird to this collection recently. The pretty, purplish blue one, fourth from the right. $2.00 LOVE IT.

Recent thrift store haul. The napkin sets were 25 cents for each pattern set, the gorgeous velvet table runner (or mantel liner) was also 25 cents and the vase a whopping half dollar.

Here, the beautiful Fireking serving tray from the previous shot ($2) joins many of it’s relatives in my hutch.

I bought that pretty vase noted earlier, to complete this grouping on my dining room table. Love two-toned blends in colored glass.

Oh, just a thought.  The scarf pictured above, while NOT a “Vera”, was still a great buy, long-time back, @ $0.75.

TIP:  Interesting scarves, of any shape or size, always make both great fashion AND decor statements.

You know of my love of books. Hubs was recently given (free) some wonderful walnut boards, and this little unfinished project was part of the package. I’m using it “as is” to hold books in our family room.

Haven’t mentioned it on ARTZZLE, but I joined a really fun group on facebook.  It’s called “Decorate with Pyrex”.  A blogger buddy of mine invited me to join.

These people – a few fellas too – collect pyrex, fireking and many other glass and pottery items.  They post displays and finds of all kinds.  It is a blast, and if you’re interested, I’ll put links at the end of the post.

While I don’t have much Pyrex, I do collect glass (as you regulars know :o) and recently I discovered something I had NEVER SEEN.  So of course, I shared it there, but want to show everyone else too.

A unique discovery ($4.75) from our local thrift store.

NOTE: The pitcher has no handle. You hold it at the stem and gently push the back over to pour.  A Pyrex pal says this is called “Blendo” so I’ll be researching soon.

Ok, for me, this has been a pretty fast post.  But now, Ms. Logical is demanding I get all this housework done.

Yikes, I only have three hours!!!   ARGH!

Always nice talking with you.
