Cinderella, So Appropriate

I recently purcahsed my first piece of classic Pyrex at a local antique store. I just walked to browse and kill some time before I met a friend for lunch. When what to my wonderful eyes should appear in the little back room.... a bountiful collection of classic Pyrex.

Now my desire to start a classic Pyrex collection is not something I shared with the hubs, so I knew I couldn't go crazy or he'd just roll his eyes at me and shake his head and say "did we really need this?" (he says that a lot). So I looked and looked at all of the colorful and beautiful pieces, especially looking at price. I didn't want to spend more than $20 for this piece, so I wanted it to be something fantastic for that price. Browse, turn over, check price, repeat. Then all of a sudden, THERE IT WAS! My new piece of Pyrex - and I couldn't be happier.

It's a Cinderella piece, and the birds and flowers are just the most beautiful and dainty things ever.

I'm so happy with it! It was worth my patience and search. Next up, I'm on the mission to find a piece of pink Pyrex!
