A Thank You, And Some Possible Free Stuff, TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

Dear readers,
Bright and early this morning  the post man had a parcel for me! You might think *psh* doesn't he always have mail for people but readers this particular piece of parcel came from CANADA! Who was it from?! None other than Valerie over at "Vonlipi's Favorites" (Go check her blog out, she's The Pyrex Queen)
What was in it?  The yellow base Pyrex Fridge dish, I had mentioned wanting to start collecting the set for the Casablanca, and 'Vonlip' (as I like to call her) sent her extra one to the Casablanca to help get the collection started! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Thank you so much Vonlip!
 I love these Pyrex dishes and I'm going to casually collect the other two pieces in the set, THEN I'm going to tackle collecting a set of the 4 primary mixing bowls (of which apparently my mother has 2 sets... do we use them? No. Will she let me have one for the Casablanca? NO... but fret not, I'm working on her. haha)
On top of that both Valerie and I have spotted these fridge dishes in the Lucy+Ricky Classic "The Long Long Trailer"  They show up in this clip sitting on the counter at around  8:24.

Now on to the free stuff, do you all remember my friend Colleen?  Well she has a new blog dedicated to sewing (she quite crafty with a needle and thread) she's started this new blog, and is trying to raise money for various things car, college, and most importantly A pilgrimage to the Casablanca!!!  She her sewing blog is brand spanking new, shes throwing a giveaway to get things started.

I love retro pyrex and the long long trailer, I have it on vhs - watch it all the time!

I love Pyrex too! Have acquired a lot of it over the years. The colours are amazing eh? We use them all the time. As you will find they are very durable and useful around the kitchen. Don't be afraid to use them....and maybe your Mom will 'give in' and you'll have that bowl set in no time.
Checked out Colleen's dog Sophie could use that give away.
