Some Pyrex, a Picture & Vintage Bliss Tuesdays Linky Party #7


Not much thrift store shopping around here recently. I had hoped to pop into a couple of thrift stores yesterday to look for more little plates for my food photographs. But the kids were home for a PA Day and I had promised to take my little girl shopping to spend her birthday money. Between the five or so stores she wanted to go to and a couple of stops for groceries, we were gone about six hours. Then I was too tired to go to the thrift stores. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I did, however, make an apple pie. But that's another story.

Today I'm sharing a look at the vintage Pyrex storage containers my mom gave me recently. I am always looking for more food storage. I like my dry goods to be in glass or plastic containers so I can see what I've got in the pantry and hopefully not waste anything. I put vegan protein powder in the larger of the two containers. We usually put it in the cupboard and forget to use it. Then it expires...which is a shame...because it's something like 50 bucks a jar! I put red lentils in the smaller container (another food item I tend to forget about - sometimes, if I'm good, I'll throw a handful in pasta sauce, because the kids hardly notice it and it adds extra nutrients).


I bought this cute little rose picture at a thrift store a few weeks back. I haven't found a place for it yet, but I think it's sweet.

Have you found any thrifty goodies lately?

  1. yeah! so excited to be able to participate this week! =)
    just like you i find too many items in my pantry needing a toss before i remember to use them. clear sealed canisters would go a long way to fixing that... onto the thrifty wish list they go.

    1. I'm so happy you're linking up Chrissy! You got great pieces!

      My fave way to store foods is in vintage mason jars, but I've filled all the ones I have, and whenever I see them at the thrift shops they are so expensive. (My mom gave me the ones I have.)

  2. I like the idea of a pantry full of pretty glass containers too! Just makes me feel organized...even if I'm not. Thanks so much for linking up at the Make it Monday Party! Hope to see you again next week.

  3. I just checked, there are two more in the cupboard that you can have (fairly large).

    1. So true. I want a couple of big ones for different types of oats. I don't care if they're mismatched either. :)

    1. Yes, it's funny when things from our childhood are now "vintage." ;)

  10. Love it! I have a thing for old rose paintings, roses are my favourite flower and I've been looking for floral prints for my daughter's bedroom. And guess what, your jars are a match for my mustard/liquid soap dispenser I got last week!
