Road Trips and Pyrex

Hi Pyrex-loving friends!  
Last weekend the boyfriend and I decided to hop in our car and go exploring in our grand state of Washington.  We ended up in a gorgeously sparse corner of the state, and setting up camp in a rambling gorge carved out during an ancient flood of epic proportions.
We of course had to stop at every thrift, antique, and junk shop we happened to spy on Google Maps along the way.
Thus making what was supposed to be a four hour journey an alarming eight hour journey.

But it was totally worth it, for at one of the scarier junk shops (and I don't use that phrase lightly...I thought it was going to collapse around us), in a corner, on the floor, covered in dust and hidden by one of it's blue-hued cousins, was this little bowl.
Now, it was a bit more than I would normally pay for a little piece of Pyrex ($8).  But when I saw it and sifted through the Rolodex in my brain, I had a glimmer of realization that this little bowl wasn't just any bowl.
But I just couldn't quite remember what it was...

...until today when I finally sat down at my little computer and did a bit of research.
I do believe I have me the top half of the Pineapple Party Chip and Dip set!

Happy dance, happy dance!

If you'd like to see more photographs (including some amazing Polaroids!) from our little road trip, please take a peek at my blog!
