Thrifting Spree & Cupcakes

Hello all! 

I had a morning off from work this week, so of course I went thrifting. :)

I found this lovely Lace Medallion promo and this Royal Wheat divided dish. $8 for both. I like their colors together! 


I also bought these 2 little Terra bowls for $.50/each.


I got this shiny turquoise #404 for $5, but it's so much more my momma than I - so I gifted it to her. Her kitchen is decked out in everything turquoise.


She collects vintage Ball & Mason jars but I'm trying to convert her to Pyrex... 


In the baking world...I've made so many cupcakes this week.

Rainbow velvet for a friend's son! (These were SO FUN to make!)



My bosses' daughter turned 7, and I made her chocolate/peanut butter cuppys with white chocolate piped butterflies.


I hope y'all are enjoying these beautiful fall evenings!


xoxo,

  1. Your cupcakes look fantastic! Love the rainbow :) I can't believe the prices of the Pyrex you are finding. Here in WA state the thrifts are getting very pricey. It's hard to find things under $5.

    1. I've noticed prices raising here quite a bit...I left so many pieces at the thrifts this week due to crazy prices! The best was a #441 Autumn Harvest (minty, but still) - $10! And on the shelf below I found the turquoise lace medallion for $4...uh, what!? (Goodwill for ya!)

  2. Great idea for cupcakes - I imagine kids love them. And very nice Pyrex finds at great prices too. Around here, I don't know what makes me cry more - the very abused Pyrex pieces I often see or the asking prices on many of those abused pieces ! Your finds look in very good shape.

    1. Thanks C! I'm becoming more and more picky about what I bring home - it's got to be in minty condition...or super hard to find. Haha!

  3. Madee, somehow I am super jealous of your lace medallion and royal wheat even though I have them both already ;) Probably because the medallion was an antique mall splurge for me--I was convinced I'd never find it in a thrift store and you proved me wrong! :) I love the colors together too; now I want to display them together!

    1. I was going to comment on your blog, Brittany! You inspired me to organize my spices...haha! I'll post about it once my project is done. ;) And I never expected to find the Lace Medallion at a thrift, either! A definite surprise! :)

  4. The wheat and medallion are gorgeous together! It makes me want to pick up some gold colored Pyrex... I'm surprised I don't have any what with the prevalence of butterfly gold round these parts!

    1. I know - I only own a few Butterfly Gold pieces, but they're so gorgeous paired with the turquoise!

    2. I gotta agree with that one! I hated Butterfly Gold, but once I saw people pairing it with Turquoise in photos, it wasn't so bad anymore, haha.

  5. 50 cents for Terra!? That's probably cheaper than when they were new!

  6. The cupcakes look great!

    & I never knew they had that size Terra bowls. Nice price!

  7. That Lace- so pretty! And the wheat is just in time for Thanksgiving...and with those prices, you have lots to be thankful for! :)
