Lately, the thrifts are not providing me any treasures. I bought a green pair of pants on Saturday that didn't fit me when I brought them home and tried them on for the first time. I like to think I gave the Salvation Army a charitable donation of $4.99, nothing more. Damn! The pants are so cute. But way too small in the waist. So when the thrifts dry up, I take out my Pyrex and play with it. See above for the results. Almost as satisfying as finding really great Pyrex for dirt cheap prices.
