Lucky Me!

Today a package arrived from Canada
and I was so excited!
I won this Pyrex Pink Gooseberry #444 from lulu and lolie a wonderful blog you should visit!
What makes this even more special is this bowl completes my set! 
The only one I bought was the smallest bowl.  The middle two were a special birthday gift from a Canadian friend and then the largest bowl was this win also from Canada!  
Happy and very LUCKY me!

Now when you look at this thrifty find
You see a bargain priced utensil bin from Target
But I see.....
A shelf for some small items including my collection of individual restaurant creamers
I am still tweaking this but love how it gives me all these 'shelves' for little things!

I'm joining
and

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

I would not have thought to use it as a shelf - Great Idea!
Like the bowl!!! My daughter is collecting some pyrex, but right now she is going more towards the turquoise and white, and green on white. She is suppose to be sending me pics of some she just bought.

You know I'm still drooling over those Gooseberry pink bowl! Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Jacqueline said...

Such beautiful pinks! I have never seen those before. I also adore how you are displaying your pretty creamers. I just got more than a dozen from Home Goods because they just seemed so sweet and I thought they would be fun with individual sauces or syrups for the family so they could each have their own.

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

You ARE a lucky girl...Congrats on completing the perfect Pyrex set for you...Pink! Love the little "shelves" for your charming creamer collection!!!

Lydia Filgueras said...

I'm not sure I've ever seen pink pyrex, but I love the color. The creamers are just fantastic! I gave away all my glassware and other collectibles when we moved so I love looking at other people's collections. Congratulations on your win :)
