A Blanket of Pyrex

It has been soooo long since I published on here. I still love pyrex, but I think I have met my quota of collecting. Also it is harder and harder to find a good deal around.

But I have still been experimenting with making different items that use my illustrations of vintage pyrex on Zazzle. I have a new Horizon Blue purse which I think is adorable.


(Don't mind the horrible phone photo or the dirt I already got on it!)

This week, though, I made what I believe is maybe the cutest/nicest thing ever from my Zazzle store.
We have a little one coming soon in our family and I thought maybe the baby (we don't know the gender) would also share my love of pyrex.

So here is what came in the mail:

(Picture is not nearly as awesome as the actual blanket)

It is soft and sweet. The illustrations are very accurate and I ADORE IT!

I'm not posting just to plug my blanket to make money, I just feel bad not making it available to others! I think it is so nice I could even see it going up on a wall as a hanging. I am almost thinking no spit up will be allowed on it! :)

If you want one too - you can buy one here:

Do you have a request for a purse or something else in a specific pattern? I could probably do it for you. :) Have a great day!

Where Has Everybody Been?

Wow, did you all notice that there haven't been any new posts on the Collective 2 since December?  I hope it's not because of a lack of pretty Pyrex being found.  I've been finding some pieces here and there but have mainly been sticking to my personal blog to share them.  Well that needs to change and that change starts here!


I've hit a couple of Pyrex jackpots in the last few weeks.  Come and visit Pyrex Thrifter Sisters to check out my latest score from Monday.

Happy Hunting!

happy holidays ladies and gents!

well, I've been away for a while
and it seems like many of us here on the second collective have been too
since becoming a mom I haven't been out searching too often for new pieces
to add to the collection
not to mention, it does get harder to find great scores
when your collection has gotten a tad out of hand
but I have been loving this season
and getting to use the special holiday pieces
perfect for family gatherings
this year I was only asked to bring a fruit side for Christmas Eve
[the perks of having a newish baby, and being domestically challenged]
but even though I only brought some pomegranates for everyone to snack on
I figured they still deserved a pretty casserole dish to be served in
so my Golden Pine Promotional Space Saver was the lucky winner
I feel like it really classed up my limited attempt at a "fruit side"

and for those of you curious about what my little one has been up to lately
I'm now blogging exclusively about my daughter on my new blog
Olive Everly - feel free to stop by and say hi!
hope everyone has a happy, safe, and pyrex filled new year!

Pyrex Cups


Here's a first for me.
Cute little Pyrex glass cups with plastic 'cozies'!

Just thought I'd share.

~ Baking in Pyrex....

I have a odd attachment to this set of lime green bake ware from Pyrex. This lovely lime green square 8x8 Pyrex pan, is my favorite one for brownies.

The thing about the vintage Pyrex for me... is that I know how it will perform in the oven. No guess work. Preheat the oven to 350. Cook for 23 minutes. And I get a perfect set of brownies each time. 

And of course, I always bake them from scratch. That is if a package of Betty Crocker brownie mix and my favorite can of Baker's Joy counts as, from scratch. :)

A New Home

I haven't posted on here in a while. We spent early summer putting our house on the market. We sold it and moved to a new house!

That was not an experience I would ever choose to repeat, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE living in our new house in the country.

So here is a bit of show and tell for the new home of my pyrex collection.

My new dining room:


I purchased the hutch from the owners of the house. They had already painted it. I love it. I knew I had to have it because my Pyrex would look amazeballs in it. And it does.  The hutch looks awesome with the kitchen too, which is actually behind me in the picture above.

I also found the table at an antique mall for a pretty good price, and the chairs were all thrifted. I love how it all comes together.

Here is a closeup of the hutch.
 And to highlight one of my more recent finds, the balloons look pretty good on the table.


I am still working on unpacking and decorating the rest of the house. It is so fun to have a whole house to decorate again! And we are so in love with this house and the property that we are just ecstatic. I have no need to leave, except to go shopping for decorations! (Oh and work I guess - to pay for those decorations!)

Happy fall pyrex hunting!
