where I am discovering my first pieces of certain patterns.
I was lucky enough to start out my collecting days with some verrrrrry good finds (flawless yellow daisy casserole dishes with lids were some of my first thrifting and antiquing finds, for example).
I can say I was spoiled by the Pyrex gods early on.
Then, about a year in, and about ten to twelve pieces in, I seemed to have corned the local market, so to speak. I frequent the same spots in my town, as well as in the DC area when I am home visiting.
And I kept on coming back to the same general patterns and pieces.
While they are cute, I'd rather build up my smaller collection with a few pieces of each pattern right now, rather than completing sets. I like the look of mismatched vintage items, and plans to store my collection in open kitchen shelving in my home one day.
So it was to my delight when I came across alllllll sorts of new patterns at the antique mall in South Charleston, West Virginia. During a visit to look at places there with my boyfriend, I made my first pink daisy find that I posted about a few days ago.
I also found these three Woodland Nesting Bowls.
Being my first encounter with Woodland print, I happily picked them up.
And took some cute pics with them too :)
a space for a little dog to chill
I promise :)
The perfect storage for a future knitting project
a tip jar for a jam session
New Pyrex finds are at the top of my list of inspiring things.
How about you?
