My name is Will and I am new to the collective.
My obsession with pyrex began when I was younger. My mom had one Spring Blossom mixing bowl when I was growing up that was my favorite bowl to use for everything from making salads to popcorn.
Now that I am older I noticed that there were other pieces to this set and I wanted to use those instead of new dishes. This sent me down a long winding road leading me to here.
I found more Spring Blossom then I ever imagined and now I am realizing there is a whole world of other pyrex out there waiting for me to find. The pieces they produced are so varied it makes me feel like every time I go out there is an opportunity for me to find something new.
At first my wonderful girlfriend thought I might have lost my mind but now it is something we love doing together!
Here is my collection of spring blossom green. Also known to my family as "where it all began". As you can see it has grown well beyond that first mixing bowl. In fact I am only missing a few pieces of the bakeware. Without a doubt my favorite piece of this set is still the large mixing bowl. But other then that I would have to say its the refrigerator dishes or the salt and pepper shakers.
These are some of the random pieces I have collected since then. My collection isn't quite as colorful as some of yours. (I am dying to find some reasonably priced pink, yellow and blue). From Top Left clockwise we have: 1. Coffee mugs two are labeled pyrex one is labeled corning 2. A telephone pole insulator made by pyrex and a Terra Casserole 3. Another shot of them 4. "Midnight Bloom" with stand 5. Random collection of pieces The clear one is Colonial Mist 6. Another random collection Snowflake, Barbed wire, Old Orchard, Golden Bouquet? and Golden Pine.
Hopefully this post was not too long. I look forward to sharing more finds with you as well as seeing the great pieces you all find.
With any luck we will start a blog covering some of the other great items we have found while thrifting include the table these were sitting on for the picture.
