Me.. Lately

Hello everyone! Hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather.

I've come to realize that I've been slacking on blogging, and need to start sharing my treasures more often! Since I've been so bad at keeping up, here are some of my favorite things that I've found over the last month or so.. plus a few goodies from yesterday :)



I'll start with my oldest find, from a couple months ago that I was absolutely ecstatic about. This is a Fire-King 2000 Jade-ite pie plate. I know it's not vintage, but it's beautiful, and something I don't have to feel bad about using. Then my little 1/4 cup McKee measuring cup! A woman from Bellingham replied to my 'Looking for jadeite' Craigslist ad with these beauties.. so I got down there asap. At only 5 bucks a piece, I couldn't pass it up!


 Next is my new Fire-King Azureite chili bowl, to go with the 2 mugs I already had. I got this about a month or so ago from a woman on a Facebook swap group I'm apart of. I totally love the color of it. Once again, at 5 dollars I couldn't pass it up. Now I just need 2 more mugs and 3 more bowls before my OCD tells me I have sufficient Azureite haha.


A friend in North Vancouver managed to score 2 Fire-King Jade-ite mugs for me, at 99 cents a piece! I could NOT believe it, and was ridiculously excited. She deserves an award for the things she finds, I swear. 


 She also found me this pretty little Pyrex Opal 401! I'm really liking the plain white right now, and want to complete this set. I wish they weren't so hard to find!


I found these weird little fish s&p shakers yesterday, and couldn't leave them behind. They're by Giftcraft Japan and I think they are hilarious. I'll be putting these up for sale because not only do they not fit my decor, they creep me out ever so slightly.


I also found these mint condition Glasbake refrigerator dishes yesterday. It's the first ones I've ever seen, so I thought that was pretty cool. They don't have lids, but the dishes are perfect. These will be going up for sale too!


Last but not least. Most devastating find of the year?... Decade?.. This is a horrifically dishwashered Pyrex Delphite fridgie. This totally broke my heart, but for 2 bucks I couldn't leave it behind. I swear, putting Pyrex in the dishwasher should be against the law.


Here is my gross, cluttered dining room table that drives me insane each time I look at it. Everything you see is either for sale currently, or will be within the next couple days. If you see something you like, head on over to www.facebook.com/LaSirenaVintageTreasures

And for good measure, here is our new kitten. She loves bathtubs as you can tell!

That's all for today! Take care xox
