It Just Jumped Off the Shelf!

Yesterday was a sad day...late in the afternoon, Mr. walked from the dining room into the sun room to let Lucy outside,and just as he entered the sun room, there was a loud crash and glass breaking sound. The sun room is very secure and the floor doesn't wiggle at all, so this was rather shocking to both of us and I ran over to check it out.

This is what I found...
The only one on Ebay right now is $199, and the only one on Etsy is $ $3 garage sale find isn't going to be very cheap to replace! :(  It had to have jumped off of a shelf, and over a set of Happy Pumpkin salt & pepper shakers and over a set of Happy Pumpkin candleholders before it hit the floor...very odd!

Today I had to have another procedure before my surgery next week, so I was home when the mail came. I heard a loud slam on the front porch, and was worried about what I'd find. I was waiting for a special package and I was afraid my package was going to be smashed. To my relief, I found my package on top of a giant package for my youngest!

This is what was inside...
It was safe and sound with a great packing job-whew!!!

 A full set-finally!!!

Except for the replacement for this one that was smashed in shipping a while back. It looks pretty good from a distance, doesn't it!?!? Up close, not so much!

It seems that I whenever I find these bowls for sale, that they are coming from Canada, and boy is the shipping high!! I might have to get a passport so I can make some thrifting trips to Canada to save the shipping charges!!!


  1. Where on earth do you find so much Pyrex. Such great pieces. Wow!

  2. I'm so sad about your fork! I wonder why it jumped? Maybe you haven't been spending enough time with your collections... :-)

  3. Came to say that Chanelle that us offering up the replacement fork is a great person. She loves sharing her finds with people!

    1. Thanks Shara! I can't even tell you how excited I am that she bought it and offered it to me!! What a caring and thoughtful thing to do!!!
