I really like my pyrex dishes—these two dishes I inherited from my mom’s house when we packed it and sold it in 2006. At one time, I had a total of one lid…between them. But accidents happen, and I’m always on the look out for replacements, which are not generally cheap.
I found three lids on the same day… 50% off… I got them for $3 bucks! I was tickled.
Until I got home and realized the small loaf pan I had is missing! So now I have an extra lid… with no dish. It has a decorative top… so I could use it for a cracker and cheese platter if I wanted!
The next item I bought was a want… this mint green rooster. It’s a planter. It has a stamp on the bottom of it…but the glaze has filled it in so much that I can’t see the maker.
No matter really. I got it for the subject matter and color, can you tell?
The last picture shows two small crochet hooks for doily or lace making. I’ve not done it years… we’ll see if my eyes and hands are up for it.
I almost never see crochet hooks at yard sales, thrift stores or flea markets; so when I do, I grab them up. The knitting needles are because I began teaching myself to knit a few years back and thought I might pick it up again…and give it another try.
Circular knitting is something I’d like to try… since I pretty much mastered the dish cloth! Ha ha! I may have to look at Craftsy and see if there are any easy hat patterns on there. Do you use Craftsy? I did. Haven’t been doing many crafts so I took the app off my phone. I’ll re-install it and check them out. Anyway, it was fifty cents… I haven’t lost much if I don’t pick them up for a while.
‘Til next time, be blessed.
