I also found some cute vintage placemats and napkins, as well as a fantastic little avocado green butter knife.
aren't those little avon bottles the cutest thing ever?!
I wrapped everything up in vintage pattern paper and stamped this little card for her on a great vintage pattern cover - those illustrations are best, aren't they?!
Last week, I came home after a very difficult day, and was so thrilled to find my box from Jen!
It came at the perfect time. When I opened up the box, I gasped with delight! She sent me three vintage Pyrex nesting bowls!!!! Oh my goodness. I cried. It totally made my day.
Jen wrote in her sweet note that she read on my blog that I loved Pyrex but only had one piece. So, she set out to find me some Pyrex when she went thrift shopping for the exchange. And she found not just one, but THREE pieces! (and for those of you that like thrifting, you know that vintage Pyrex is very hard to find!)
there they are, all lined up in a row :)
isn't that pattern so sweet?
it matches my house so well.
love that mustard gold!!
I'm a dork, I know. Posing with my Pyrex. :)
It was so much fun to do this thrift exchange. I loved shopping with someone else in mind. Usually, I just go for myself, but it was really rewarding to go for someone else! And I was so happy to have found so many great pieces for Jen that I knew would bring a smile to her face. On top of that, I made a new friend in the process. :)
