Oh Turquoise! How I love you!!

I had a very good (or if you ask my bank account, bad) day yesterday. A couple estate sales, a few thrift stores, and the local antique mall. I decided to hit the antique mall on a whim after I drove by and saw they were having a sidewalk sale. I got there late in the afternoon and most vendors were packing up. But I went inside. And I'm glad I did. I normally avoid the antique places, because, as you well know, the pricing will kill you. Or at least put you into shock. But it was worth it when I got to bring these two beauties home.

Plus, as I was getting ready to leave, I stopped at one last booth. I was looking at some other things in a really jumbled area. I bent down to check something out and turned around just in time to spot this hiding on the bottom shelf behind some furniture:

My first Pyrex with the original box. And I can tell you that they cost a bit more than the left- over yard sale sticker price of $3.00. But they were on sale for 25% off, so that makes it all okay, doesn't it?

Here's the rest of my haul from Saturday. Oh, except the green and yellow Cinderella bowls. I picked those up a few weekends ago at a fruit stand/antique store. It was being sold as a chip and dip set with the bracket. My question is: were those actually sold as a chip and dip set?

Hope your weekend was as "productive" as mine. Now I gotta go get some housework done around here.
