Well lookie here....another piece of pink Pyrex

We were in Honokaa yesterday. A small town up north on The Big Island of Hawaii. We took the long way to Hilo. We hadn't done this in years since they upgraded Saddle Road which is now called the Daniel J. Inouye Highway. It is a relatively straight line to Hilo now. So yesterday we took the old meandering route. We popped in and out of little shops along the way and I spotted this piece of Pink Pyrex. It has the tiniest little mark on the pink on one side, but other than that is mint. The lid they had is definitely NOT the right lid, so I will haunt Sidney Thrift shops until I find the right one. How adorable is this piece! Guess how much. Guess. $12.95. Two pieces of pink Pyrex found in the wild in one week. Yahoo!!

My favourite store in Hilo did not disappoint.

I really lucked out in Hilo today. I found two beautiful Pyrex pieces. One was this amazing large pink casserole and I found another Snowflake casserole dish. I let my sister have the Snowflake dish because she really wanted one since she saw mine.

I found that lovely Royal Albert Brigadoon creamer as well as embroideries and crochet. That crochet doily looks like my grandmother's.
