So I made a quick trip this morning to a SA that I've had some luck with in the past. I was very happy to spot a woodland casserole with a lid.
Then I wondered if she even realized it was Pyrex or just some pretty set of mixing bowl. Believe it or not, I actually got up the nerve to ask her if she'd let me buy it off of her for more than what she paid (I figured there was no harm in asking politely). She told me that she's a Pyrex collector so that was the end of that. I guess it was not meant to be. :( It bummed me out for most of the afternoon, until I reminded myself that the woodland casserole is a spectacular find and I could have left empty-handed instead, like I've done so many times before. Funny how perspective makes such a huge difference. Had I never seen those daisy bowls, I would have been happy all day with my find. At least I came to my senses eventually.
