Pyrex, Roses, Ribbons & Lace these are a few of my favourite things.
I am thrilled with this weeks Magpie finds...Lots of lovely vintage charity shop finds and first up we have some vintage Pyrex. Most of us Magpies have 'a thing' for Pyrex. The crisp white glass with bold prints are to die for and the older and bolder the more excited we get.
So this first one is a snowflake design is from the 1950's. It is a really handy midi size roaster and fits perfect in my warming oven on the range. The pattern is in perfect condition and it has a lid which I'm chuffed with. This roaster was only £2!
This next Pyrex roaster is also from the space saving range and again is a mini roaster. I love the colour of this one...Yellow with black snowflakes looks gorgeous.
The best thing about it is it has a little stand or cradle as it is sometimes called. I'm guessing it is also from the 1950's but if anyone knows for sure I would love to hear from you. This one was such a bargain at £1.50.
I then had a rummage in the haberdashery drawer and spotted these artificial roses. I love them and will put them in my hair. I got the lot for £1
Up next is some retro dress patterns. I love the style of these and in a modern retro style fabric they will look fab. I got the pair for £1.
Further rummaging revealed a bag of lace. I instantly got excited as I saw the gorgeous pinks and a stunning red. The bag was 50p.
I knew exactly what I would do with the lace and I needed some vintage style buttons to complete what I had in mind. I got these little beauties for 50p.
Want to know what I did with the lace and buttons? Well, my Teen buys a lot of lace headbands so I thought I could make her some instead of the fortune she pays for them in the shop. She loves the ones I made her and actually prefers them to the shop bought ones. Now we have plans to make lots more in all different styles and colours.
