Well, the Saturday before Easter I was doing last minute shopping, sans kids, and totally striking out everywhere. I could not find a decent sweater vest for my 7 yr old and no new DS fabric at JoAnn’s. Rats. So I was driving by my favorite thrift shop on my way home and thought, I’ll just run in for 5 minutes. Jackpot! Two things that were on my wish list and one I didn’t even know I wanted.
First of all a big yellow pyrex bowl. I’ve wanted some bright yellow pyrex but never find any, and I’ve needed a big summer salad bowl. Woo. It’s not in mint condition, but it will do. I was so excited.
Then sitting next to the yellow bowl was this beauty. I’m not a super-expert on pyrex and I had never seen the dark blue, but I loved it. With those cheerful daisys? How could you not. And this one is in mint condition. Most of my vintage pyrex collection is in the 1970’s harvest tones so I’m always excited when I find something out of that realm. As I did a little google research, I discovered that it’s Blue Colonial Mist or something like that. (Someone with a knowlege far superior to mine feel free to jump in here.) There’s even a similar bowl available on ebay right now!
