Pyrex Update for Perennial Pyrex │ Vintage Pyrex Collection

For over three years, I've had a Pyrex Tiktok account. It has been a very fun account to maintain. Many folks love Pyrex like I do. And thanks to social media, there's a way to group subjects to find what you like and keep it in your feed.

Pyrex fans are out there and love it like I do!

The gist of this TikTok account was to document my Pyrex thrifting journey. It was all for myself. Just to document my thrifted Pyrex find and watch my collection grow.

Turns out, people loved watching me collect! And that things were thrifted was an extra fun part of the treasure hunt. I was just shy of 20,000 followers. 

I got rid of that account a week ago. It served its purpose and I was tired of dealing with the trolls. 99% of my followers were lovely people.

But there's always those few party poopers. I was tired of them. My collection is for me. Not for anyone else. I don't care what other people say and have decided not to deal with it anymore. The good and the bad.

Having said that, I didn't get rid of the TikTok account because of the trolls. I was already thinking of deleting it because I'd acquired more than half of the Pyrex out there and finding pieces I don't have is going to get more difficult. 

Meaning, fewer posts to post.

It was time. Time to leave Tiktok.  Believe it or not, I'm relieved. The pressure to post is always out there and I despise it. It was a joy to have it when I had it, but I'm just as joyous now saying goodbye to it as well.

So, no more TikTok "Perennial Pyrex" for me. I love my Pyrex, and still plan on adding thrifted Pyrex finds but if I have a good find - and I know there are other finds out there to be found - I have a vintage blog to post it on: this one. Right here. Perennial Vintage Supply.

Meanwhile, here's the latest look at what I have. This is three years and three months of thrifting Pyrex. It is 98% thrifted. The other 2% are gifts or a random antique store find. 

There's more Pyrex to find in my thrifting world, albeit less as my collection continually amasses, but I'm always on the quest.

Pyrex fans, I get you. I love you! Thanks for following along on my Pyrex journey in Northern California.

Introverted but Willing to Discuss Plants │ Introvert Tshirt

Introvert tshirt

I thrifted this t-shirt a couple of days ago. I vacillated on whether or not I wanted to spend $2 on it. I know  but every $2 adds up!

"Introverted but willing to discuss plants."

After putting it back and thinking about it while I thrifted, I went back to it, took it off the hanger, and put it over my arm. Done deal.

If there ever was a t-shirt that represented me, it's this one.

After a quick search on Google, I found it's available on Amazon! It's linked right here. And it comes in so many colors. I love it! ♥ 

Introverts, your t-shirt awaits…


Estate Sale Finds │ Vintage Clothing at an Estate Sale

A few weeks ago, I mentioned a fabulous estate sale I went to. I scored about 40 items! It was a great day for vintage clothing. These kinds of estate sales are rare. Usually, estate sales give me a couple of items ... if I'm lucky.

The lady of this home had impeccable taste. Her style was exquisite. Here are just four highlighted pieces. All are listed and linked to my shop.

Enjoy!

Iris Flowers in my Bouquet

Iris flower opening

My son gave me flowers for Mother's Day a couple of weeks ago. (Both of my sons and husband gave me flowers for Mother's Day so my home smelled like a florist and I wasn't mad about it, that's for certain.)

But the bouquet my oldest gave me included these beautiful irises. This picture is of one flower that took two weeks to open. 

It smelled divine and kept the family room smelling like an outdoor flower garden.

The flowers finally said goodbye to me but not before I snapped a picture of this last iris opening. Two of the "sides" of the bud still had yet to open.

Flowers. I love them...
