I realize that most of you probably assume I've dropped off the face of the earth! Summer is the absolute busiest time of year in my line of work - I direct a program that helps new freshmen transition to college - and the last few weeks have been absolutely crazy. I didn't even get to the supermarket, let alone the thrift stores!
Now that regular fall classes have begun on my campus, though, my life will actually calm down a bit. Fall, for me, is like summer for most people -- my "down time" at work. I can't wait. I'm way overdue!
To get back into the swing of things, I thought I'd show you a couple of finds that I picked up back in late July but never had a chance to show you. I'm really excited about them!
I've always wanted a set of these Pyrex diner-style cups and saucers. I'd never seen them in gray before spotting this set in a local Goodwill store! They're absolutely pristine -- appear to never have been used. Aren't they so modern?
And then, a little farther down the same aisle, I came across these!
Another set in flamingo pink! This bunch included four dinner plates, four luncheon plates, four saucers, three cups, and serving bowl, and a cream and sugar set. Again -- pristine condition. I was so excited!
I just love the simple, modern, 50s vibe of these pieces. I had to photograph them and hide them away immediately, lest I decide to keep them for myself. The gray set looks really pretty with my jadeite collection!
Finally, here's a set of 1960s serving pieces that I found in another thrift a while ago:
I'd love to set a table with this flatware and Pyrex dinnerware!
Have you had any thrifting luck lately? Now that my life is calming down, I can't wait to catch up on everyone else's blog posts and vintage finds!
