Thrifty Thursday!

Just a couple finds this week...nothing major...but hang with me and there is a GIVEAWAY at the end!!! Happy Thursday!!!!

The pyrex keeps jumping in to my cart! Picked this mixing bowl up for $3

I love the pyrex mixing bowls. A lot. I would love to find the largest red. Reminds me of fudge! Growing up...the large red pyrex mixing bowl was ALWAYS used to mix the fudge at Christmas time. Always. I don't remember it being used for anything else...but ALWAYS the fudge!! This one is the middle size bowl...which I didn't have. So a fun find!

And to satisfy my earthy pottery tic...

Isn't it lovely? Covered casserole. It's about 10" across...nary a crack or chip! And it's heavy! and signed. LOVE this! $5

And then I found this.

A Dinner Without Wine is Like a Day Without Sunshine. Wilton Armetale wine coaster! Actually...I found TWO of these...identical!! Each was a mere .75 !!! Of course I grabbed both! That's because I'm going to give one of them away!!

If you're interested in bringing the wine coaster home, just leave a comment here and let me know what you deem to be your favorite wine! This will be fun! I'll get suggestions for wines to try, and someone will win the wine coaster! Feel free to tell your friends, and then be sure and come back NEXT Thursday and I'll announce the winner!

Happy Thursday! And as always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Pyrex reminds me of my mom. lol! Nice finds! I don't drink wine but I know someone who does and would love that giveaway item! Thanks!

Pyrex mixing bowls are getting harder and harder to find. They are a personal favorite. Easy to use easy to clean. My favorite wine is Santa Margarita Pinot Grigio. We eat alot of fish and this wine works well for that.

Oh my goodness Kim, I just saw the large red one when I was running around with my sister. I wish I had known. After the kids get back into school, I'm going to have to run back up to the shop I saw it at. I've been trying to find an excuse to get back up there. One of the cutest shops was closed the day we were there and I wanted to go back anyway.

Oh, I forgot, my favorite wine is Tapestry by McLaren Vineyards. A lot of kick in that bottle! LOL

Great finds as always!! My husband and I really enjoy the wines from the Williamsburg Winery in VA. They have a spiced wine that come fall and winter is lovely. I also like the Beringer White Merlot. (I don't like to play favorites when it comes to food and drink!)

DH makes fun of my chardonnay habit but I do love a glass before bed. My grandmother had the solid yellow Pyrex bowls and they always remind me of her meatloaf. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Still learning about wines myself. I do like pinot grigios.
