It Isn't Pink

Hi to all my new friends at the collective!  I am a newbie to collecting vintage pyrex, but as a child of the 70's remember it fondly from my mom's kitchen. (I guess that makes me vintage too!)  I am a big fan of anything pink, so who knew I would start a collection that was pretty much the opposite - turquoise. 

My vintage pyrex butterprint bowl!

My first love has always been vintage linens - but this little bowl stole my heart.  I was out at the local VV thrifting for linens - looking like a walking closet, my arms full with hangers of sheets.  Walking by the bakeware aisle, a little beacon of aqua & white caught my attention.  I practically lunged at the bowl, totally disregarding the fellow shoppers around me, plowing through them like a human clothesline.  I noticed a few sideways glances, as I grabbed the bowl like an olympic medal, restraining from a happy dance there in the aisle.  (C'mon we thrifters have all been there, the victory of a great find.)

The total haul!

The thrill is always in the hunt, so now butterprint is on my thrifting/antiquing list.  Now if I can just find it in the pink...

Have a great weekend everyone!
