Happy Mother's Day Wishes and Some New Finds

Went shopping yesterday with Shelly (who dearly needs a blog) and Patty of Lemon Lane Cottage. We went to a few antique shops and the Goodwill. Such fun with these gals. Shelly pointed out a thermos to add to my growing collection. It is the red one in the middle.


 Adding to my Pyrex collection. I have just started collecting to add to pieces I had from my mom.


These three are new. The top with yellow flowers is not Pyrex I don't think. No markings. The bottom one is and so is the cute blue fridgie with the rooster.


So cute and I love that these are practical items to collect. I use them all the time.


Here are two of my new juice glasses bought at the Goodwill. There is a third around here somewhere.


Oh, and the sweetest is this early Mother's day gift from my girls. I had been wanting this chalkboard from Country General Store in our downtown and they remembered. I was so thrilled when I opened it.


Happy Mother's day to all of you moms out there and those who are celebrating their mom. I never miss my own sweet wonderful mom more than on Mother's day. The day is so much easier to handle these days now that almost ten years have passed but boy the first few Mother's days were torture. I felt the reminder she was gone was everywhere you went. But thankfully time has healed that wound to where the day is enjoyable again and I look forward to not cooking dinner and being as lazy or spending as much time in the garden as I want. Of course spending it with my kids is the best part. They and their father are what shapes my world and the reason I wake up every day. So thankful to be in this little family of mine. Best wishes to you all. Enjoy!! And kiss your mom for me!!!

Great fun shopping with friends and I love your new treasures. The thermos is fabulous and the pyrex is so hard to find anymore. I miss my mom everyday also and she has been gone for over 20 years. She is still to close in my heart. I hope your day is a total Blessing and full of nothing but fun. Hugs, Marty

Happy Mother's Day Elaine Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share you have this evening. I love all the treasures that you found. Your thermos is delightful to add to your collection.

Love those juice glasses as well, and pyrex? Need I ask more. We all love our pyrex dishes, the colors, the patterns and just all the assortments of sizes. Fun, fun, fun.

Love the gift from the kiddos. It is perfect for your country kitchen. Love it.

Have a beautiful Sunday. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Wow love all of your finds. I to love to find vintage things but you find the best things. So happy for you that you and your girl friends could go out before Mother's Day and enjoy that time. Happy Mother's Day. You have a great family and especially the girls who know what their Mom really wants. Sandy

Happy Mother's Day to you! Sounds like you had a good time with your friends and shopping for vintage items is the best!

What adorable treasures you got! What cracks me up is that antiques are now things I had as a young wife! LOL! Of course the thermos is a real find! The chalkboard is just too sweet! Happy Mother's Day to you!

Claudia said...

Happy Mothers Day.

I'm more and more attracted to vintage Pyrex. I grew up with it, so I stayed away for a while, but now.... Hmmm.

Happy Mother's Day to you! I love your new thrift finds. Your thermos collection makes such a cute display.

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

Very nice chalkboard and a beautiful reminder of your kids everyday. Happy Mothers Day to you! I love pyrex and wish I had room to collect more of it. One of my first, and favorite pieces, that I've had since 1976 just broke. :-(

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

OH! I saw the gooseberry and the friendship! Fun hunting with friends.
Happy Mothers Day to you!

AshTreeCottage said...

One of my favorite things to do ~ thrifting with a friend.
Glad you had fun and found some great new things.
Happy Mother's Day!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

:D What a cute chalkboard. You got a great gift! I love your Pyrex collection. I use refrigerator boxes, too. I think they are much safer for food storage than plastic!

Happy Mother's Day!

nancy said...

Nice collection! Behind the thermos what's the wire item with the flower on it?

Annette T. said...

That chalkboard is just terrific. Perfect for your house. Makes me think maybe I should paint a little rooster on mine! I know what you mean, time does make it a little easier, but we still miss our mom's so much! You're a great mom!

Kathleen Grace said...

Your pyrex collection is awesome, I've never been able to figure out a use for the divided dishes, is there anything in particular that you use yours for?
Happy Mothers Day Elaine!

Melanie said...

Love your new finds! Was just catching up with your blog, looking through your last few posts...your flowers are all looking so pretty and lush and I love seeing your chickens. What kind of a crazy neighbor would be bothered by sunflowers?! Sheesh! Well, happy Mother's Day to you, and I'm sorry that it's a bittersweet day for you. I did hug and kiss my mom today - she is appreciated!

Lisa~A Cottage To Me said...

Happy Mother's Day to you too! Looks like you got some great stuff and enjoyed your friend time. Good for you!

Cindy said...

I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day. You found some really great little treasures, I love the red one especially, that is something that I would pick up if I saw it.
Hugs, Cindy
