Something Old

Yesterday, I had to go to a town about 20 min. away to get one single ingredient for the feed that Todd is going to make for our cows this weekend. He thought I would complain (I am one that when I am done working, just want to go home. Do not stop anywhere, do not do anything. Just. Go. Home).


Oh no - because I would drive right by my favorite junk store - Useful Junk. Actually, more importantly, it should be called Cheap Useful Junk.


A few weeks ago I found there some old Pyrex baking dishes and mixing bowls there. And I LOVE them. I have plastic ones, but that just doesn't cut it for dumping the mashed potatoes into for Sunday dinner and sitting on the table.

I went back and snagged these beauties for $8.00. Yes, all 3 of them for $8. I'm hoping that was a good deal. The 8x8 dish already has been put to use for dinner last night (venison pot pie), and the large mixing bowl in the back is the perfect size to hold Tyler's popcorn snack at night. I have another one from my last trip the same size, which holds Jessie's popcorn.

Have a good weekend everyone! I have to work tomorrow:( but Sunday will be a day of fun - cleaning out my sewing/computer room. I think I'm getting the bug to sew again..........

First let me say how I love hearing the words, 'go to town.' That takes me back to my roots! And second, I'm completely envious of your dish treasures! I love those old dishes and would love to find some. Perhaps I need to find a local useful junk store, too. There is a Goodwill store not too far from me, maybe I could get lucky there...
