Baby bird, Pyrex, Vintage Pepsi Machine

Do you ever get an over whelming urge to go thrifting? We were driving to town to my momma's house when I had this really bad urge to just stop at Goodwill and see what was thrift worthy!!

I found this really cute Vintage Pyrex 1.5 Qt divided Cinderella Oval Casserole in the Barbed Wire pattern. It was a 1958 Pyrex Fall Promotional pattern. This is such a great  dish! I have been using it a lot!
Then I bought this set of Pyrex green clear bottom mixing bowls that are in really good shape and I love green!! They are just the same style, but different color as another set I received as a wedding gift 20 years ago. 
So the thrifting was definitely worth the urge!! Haha!!  

So how many of you have an old Pepsi vending machine in the driveway? This is the one at my parents house. It looked so pretty with all the flowers by it, I just had to take a picture to share with you all. Yes, it does work and my dad kept it stocked for a long time. Kids and grown ups alike always get a big bang out of getting pop out of it!!!

And here is a picture of me enjoying my Pepsi!

Yes, that is me.. uhh.. I mean Cindy Crawford enjoying a Pepsi!!! Haha!!!

This is my little buddy I have been enjoying all week. He is a little Black Bird. His mom and dad kicked him out of the nest as he was getting big. He needs to learn to fly and still grow in some more feathers! His parents guard and bring him food. He hops over to this water dish I have out for my chickens and the wild birds in the yard. He likes to sit in the rock in the middle. Isn't he cute?? The chickens just treat him like a little baby and don't bother him.

I am so busy, busy, busy!! But I want you to know that we are personally safe from the Colorado wild fires, but so many people have been going through disaster. Thank you for all your prayers and kind thoughts. We need rain in Colorado. So many fires burning it is so sad. Too much loss. Stand strong in your faith in God and be thankful for all His blessings!
Smile and be happy today!!

  1. What a cute little bird! I love watching birds in my yard, especially babies :) I'm so glad you guys are safe. I've been thinking about you lately and meant to check in, so I'm happy to hear you all are ok!

  2. Aww... such a sweet baby bird :) And I love that your chickens don't bother him. So glad to hear you are safe from the fires. Where I live in Colorado there was a fire about an hour away, but thankfully they seem to have it contained. The wind is unbelievable here! I know it's windy in the Spring time, but in years past it seems like the wind has died down by now.

    Have a wonderful day :) Hugs!

  3. Hello Hello! How are you Miss Susie?
    The black bird is so darn cute! I love that his parents are still by his side. I'm in love with that Pepsi machine!
    I'm also so sorry about the CO fires, and so happy to know that you are safe.
    Hope you're enjoying the summer (despite the fires)

  4. Sweet Susie,

    Thank God you and yours are okay from the fires. I have you and your fellow friends in my prayers and I'm wishing for some rain for you too.

    The baby black bird is so cute, it's great to hear the grand parents are feeding the little one. Be careful of any cats from your neighborhood, if they see this little guy hanging around. We lost an entire nest of cardinal babies because of a neighbors cat last year.

    Wooohoooo great find at . The Pyrex bowls you found are great bowls to have. Did you know people when selling these bowls at estate or yard sales charge a fortune because their vintage.

    I love your mother's garden area with the Pepsi machine from your dad. The colors machine the flowers planted in pots and while you're checking our the flowers and machine...........why not have a soda!!
