Fortunately, my sister suggested we go to our mom's church rummage sale (only to find that our mom had decided not to go!) and a few other places on Saturday, so that took my mind off of my planting woes.
I was the one that introduced my sister to estate sale and junk store shopping, but it turns out that she is much better at it than I am. She found many treasures on our excursion, but I was beginning to think I was going home empty handed when I finally found a Pyrex Snowflake casserole:
It's in really nice shape, but missing its lid. As it happens, I had found a lid for a quarter in a thrift shop months ago, but hadn't seen an appropriately sized casserole for sale since. So yay, a complete casserole dish! This brings my total Snowflake count up to 3 (well, 3 dishes, 2 lids). Does that count as a collection?
|I really like the space saver Pyrex dishes. More! I want more!
On my way home from my sister's house, I noticed a sign for an estate sale that I hadn't seen advertised. The sale was wrapping up, so there wasn't much left, but I found 3 rectangular Pyrex storage containers with plastic lids for $7, plus this little gem for $1:
|Because, really, who doesn't need one of these?
I gave it to Farm Boy because he sure does love his weiner. Dog. He loves his weiner dog.

On the cooking front, I didn't do much in the way of vintage cookery this past week. We had guests over for dinner on Sunday (for Farm Boy's famous ribs - mmmm!) and I made my first coconut cream pie. I sent the last piece home with one of the guests and then sorely regretted that decision after Monday's lunch. <sigh>
