Mostly Pyrex

I found this sweet little 474B Butterfly Gold at the St. Vincent de Paul yesterday - $2.  It's my first piece of this design of the Butterfly Gold

I couldn't quite believe my eyes when I saw this at Value Village, you can imagine I grabbed it up pretty quickly.   It's an 8 oz little individual dish, flamingo pink - made in Canada, love it!  It was priced high, $3.99 but I had my saver card filled up so I got a 30% discount.  I put the miniature bars in it so you can see how tiny it really it.

I always loved Ode to Billy Joe - I'm listening to the album as I type!

Yesterday I went picking raspberries for making jam, further down the road I picked peas,  I bought all these vegetables there - the farmer went out and dug the beets for me and picked the lettuce - can't get much fresher than that.

Potatoes in Woodland 475B

Red Leaf Lettuce in Shenandoah 475B

4 litre Homestead with Beets and Zucchini

Spring Blossom 475B holds the peas

Spring Blossom 403 is holding the waste

Love fresh peas!  They look right cute in Square Flowers 403

Raspberries in Butterprint 475B

More raspberries in Snowflake 475B

I love showing off my Pyrex -  don't you??
