I think I need to stop looking at glass serving pieces when I'm out and about, thrifting. There are so many lovely ones...and three more have come home with me.
I used this one the other day to toast almonds for the English Toffee. I have never, ever seen such an adorable pie plate, have you? No, seriously - have you? I didn't know they made decorative ones, other than pyrex with a fluted edge and wee handles (I have one of those too.). But this one is my instant favorite. I like the intricate design on something that can be used every day.
These two are great too - that's a potato salad bowl if I ever saw one. It's just the right size for a fruit bowl too, and I love the pattern. It's fairly deep in the glass, so it's easy to grasp and carry.
This is the biggest divided tray I have...and dearies, I think I have to stop with the divided trays. I have wee ones, middle size ones, and now, this bodacious baby. But....how perfect for long sticks of celery or carrots, some dilly beans nestled in that mid-size section, and then pickled beets and sweet pickles in the small sections. So pretty...and useful.
So if you see me in a thrift store, or at a yard sale, clutching yet another glass serving piece, please stop me! I do love pickles, but there are only so many you can put on the table at once!
Wishing you thrifty, gracious living,
