Thanksgiving Thursday Throwback

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I'm thankful for a day with family, friends, and food! I'm also thankful for vintage and old family photos!

I really wish that dining set had stayed in the family!

Have a great day, everyone! What are you thankful for?

Vintage Pyrex Discovery!

Like a lot of other vintage junkies out there, I am obsessed with Pyrex! The vintage stuff was unbelievably well made! It has a million uses, can withstand very high heat, and resists chipping like no other.

I recently purchased a set of primary bowls and noticed that the bowls were marked differently than what I'm used to seeing. I did a little internet research and found out the they're marked differently because they're the oldest version and the Pyrex company wasn't numbering them yet.

Here are some subtle and not-so-subtle differences in the vintage and older vintage primary colored bowls.

I hope you guys don't mind that I totally geek out over this stuff. I know I'm not alone in my obsession!

First, notice the color difference in the red bowl. There wasn't a drastic difference in the other colors.

Next, check out the difference in the bottom curve.

Not all of the bowls in the older set are thicker, but there is a definite difference in the red.

Of course, the easiest difference to spot is the bottom marking.

And I just listed the complete set of older bowls today on Atomic Purple! Click on the photo and you'll go right to the listing!

That's the Pyrex scoop I have for you today. I'll let you know if I find out any other cool info!

Getting Excited!

Great Monday mornings are made of coffee with friends. I started my week at my favorite coffee shop, Press, in Dayton's Oregon District.

I was meeting with my friend, Lisa, to discuss a photography workshop that she's wants to offer at Grass Roots Enrichment and Wellness Center.

You guys, I'm so excited about this! Not only am I going to have a gallery in her space, but I'm also going to teach the workshop! AND there's a possibility that I might be teaching another one for kids!

The workshop won't be until spring; but I'm already stoked to start planning the curriculum. I'm also excited to try out some new photo labs and get some of my photos up for sale at Atomic Purple soon too!

Retro Halloween

It's not a secret that I'm not a huge fan of Halloween. It's just not my thing. Since vintage is my thing, I thought I'd post some retro Halloween photos for Throwback Thursday. These are pictures of my one of the Halloween parties that my Mom's family threw in the 1960's. The costumes are kind of weird. I don't know if that's just how costumes were back then or if my family was extra quirky....

The furniture!

Do I spy a Pyrex bowl?

Best curtains EVER!

Are you dying over the furniture like I am?? I SO wish my Grandma had hung on to some (all) of it! And those curtains!!! I die. Seriously!

Happy Thursday and welcome to November! Bring on the Christmas music and pass the egg nog!
