So, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a lime pie plate, a Candle Glow (I know, not Pyrex, but I still like it) casserole with lid, and a Pyrex Early American gold on brown casserole all in excellent condition.
The lime pie plate is something I've been wanting for some time and I couldn't believe my luck, though it has a few marks on the lip's underside, which luckily do not show. All washed up, the three pieces are looking great.
I quite like the gold on brown Early American pattern, though I know it's not hugely popular. In the fall and winter months it suits the colder seasons.
I'm at the point where I'm selling my Pyrex pieces bought in the past that I'm not crazy about and only accumulating the ones I really like. Like many, I went overboard two or three years ago when I hadn't settled on the items I'd eventually prefer and collect. Now it's time to pass them on to others who'll appreciate them more.
On a humourous note, I had a friend over for coffee last week who's in her late sixties. She took a look at some of the vintage Pyrex I have on display in my kitchen and I asked her what she thought.
"Aren't they beautiful?" I asked, to which she replied, "Yep, I remember those. My mother used to have them."
And that, boys and girls, was the end of our Pyrex conversation...
I guess some people just don't see the beauty in them as we do! ;-)
