RIP Skye kitty...

My Skye kitty left our world yesterday afternoon.
Rick found him when he got home from work last night. Didn't look like he got hit by a car or attacked by the neighborhood dogs or the coyotes that live across the field...just gone.
I sure will miss his sweet personality. I will miss him sitting in my lap on our front porch, I will miss watching him chase things in the front yard, I will miss him playing with the babies (that really aren't babies anymore).
And I am sure the babies will miss him even more than I do.
He was their protector and their playmate.
He was my friend.

I don't know what is up with my blogger account lately...but it sure is frustrating me to NO end.
I can't go back and edit my sentences or space my text from my photos...GRRRR!!
I can't even get my text centered which is what I prefer without having to attempt it multiple times.
I need to apologize for not being more clear in my last post. I had a three day work week, not a three work week. And the next sentence was supposed to say any more NOT anymoore.
Hope you have a great day!

More vintage finds!

Well, not much has happened this last week. I had a three work week this week, that was nice. Not so nice is the fact there aren't anymore school holidays until Memorial Day. It is going to be a long two months!
I got a few new vintage things at the thrift stores over the last week or so, thought I would share them.
First up is lids for my Pyrex Butterprint casserole dishes. I thought they were mixing bowls until I was doing some research for a friend for a broken mixing bowl and found out that mine were covered casserole dishes. Found the lids at our local Deseret Industries for $0.75 a piece. I think I have less than $10.00 in the set with the lids! I love this Pyrex print. My mom had the mixing bowls in this pattern when I was a little girl. She still has 2 of the set of 4. I have the smallest mixing bowl that I picked up a while back.

Next up is my Brown Drip Pottery parmesan cheese shaker. I love Brown Drip Pottery. I don't have a specific maker that I collect, I love it all. Not sure who made this one, the lettering does scream 70's though.

And I got these Ball Quilted Crystal jelly jars for 50 cents. The pink and green match the colors of my craft room. I am going to use them to put buttons or beads in and then put them on my shelf. The lids make me happy! I love the flowers, again so 70's.

I hope your week was as good as mine!

Have a great day!
