A Dress Mannequin, Pyrex And Paperweights

This weekend I didn't go to any garage sales Saturday or flea markets on Sunday.  I refused to get up when my boyfriend's alarm went off at 6:30 a.m. to get out there.  I just couldn't do it.  I got up at 8:30 a.m. and got some much needed housework done.  The following pictures are of finds I haven't had time to post till now.

This dress mannequin was a flea market find I got the body part and the base but it was short the pole in between.

Now we have a pole and it's standing tall.

My boyfriend found this piece of Daisy Pyrex for me.  It's a 80 oz. oval casserole dish with lid.

It looks like it was never used it was still in the original box.

This paperweight was a gift from my boyfriend.  It's signed on the bottom Edinburgh.  I'm not sure who made it all I know is it was made in Scotland.

These paperweights are part of my collection and unsigned.  I have a hard time not buying paperweights when I see them.

  1. Great pictures as usual.

  2. Lover your paperweight collection! Great Pyrex in original box! Score!

  3. That's a very nice paperweight collection. They're so kaleidoscope-y. My favorite thing is the Pyrex in that great yellow.

  4. Isn't the Daisy the cheeriest pattern?? Love it!

  5. What wonderful treasures! I have almost the same Pyrex Casserole dish. The design on top is a little different but the colors are alike. I received it as a wedding gift in 1970 and I have used it often over the last 42 years. It's still in mint condition.
    Isn't thrifing the best thing since sliced bread? I can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon than puttering around in a stuffed to the fills thrift shop!
    Have a wonderful day, my new friend,

  6. I have a small daisy pyrex refrigerator dish, as well as a few others, but have never seen one with its own box. Great scores!

  7. i adore that pyrex dish, it is the most beautiful pattern i've seen so far! i hope my boyfriend will spot me one too! :)
