man pyrex does exist

at least it does in my house
typically, I think we could agree that most pyrex collectors [obsessors] are women
however, I know that we do have a few men here on the collectives
but still, you get what I mean
even so, I think many of us also have realized that something else can be said us collectors
many of our men have started the practice of 
"if you can't beat 'em, join 'em"
[or at least don't complain about the habit, because it isn't going away]
and so joining in is exactly what my husband has come around to
so here are two of his favorite pieces of "man pyrex"
we actually have the complete set, new in box, of the green Pyrex Party Mugs
and he just can't seem to get enough of them
so far he uses them solely for his adult beverages
but I'm looking forward to giving them a whirl this winter for hot beverages too
[that is - if he will share with me]
the mr. also is a big fan of his Terra Mugs
in fact, he liked using them so much that he would bring them over 
to our friend's house
and the friend decided he wanted one of them too
so now they have matching Terra Mugs when they hang out
so there you go, spreading the love of Pyrex, one man at a time
hope everyone had a great weekend, and maybe some new finds!


  1. love this. and i love the Terra pattern.... must find some soon! ;)

    1. thanks - it is pretty hard to find not beat up, at least in my area. Since it doesn't have that glossy exterior finish it seemed to have really got scratched up by daily use - good luck hunting :)

  2. Oh that gave me a giggle! My man actually instigated my Pyrex obsession, oddly enough. It's funny though, we found Terra mugs awhile back and he LOVES them. They are his absolute favorite mugs to drink tea from. ;)

    1. I'm telling you, terra & men just fit!

  3. Ha! Too funny. My soulmate was not convinced at first either, but now he usually spots the Pyrex at the thrift store before I do :-)

    1. yes, I am going through the same thing as you, the mr. always spots the pyrex first. Right now I'm blaming it on my baby belly not letting me bend over, but I fear that he just has gotten better at hunting than me! oh well, and least someone is spotting it for the family :)

  4. That is hilarious!

    Thank you for sharing this. :)

  5. Very funny! I didn't even think about the Terra mugs for The Husband, what a good idea! And those green mugs are very cool.

    1. love the green mugs too, the mr. is wanting to find more, apparently four is not enough for him! and yes, find some terra for your man, he will probably be pretty into it!

  7. Hilarious :) pyrex buddy bromance- love it!!!

    1. yup - I really need to snap a pic of it one of these days, it's pretty cute!

  8. Whether that can be eaten. In short, it is impossible to argue that
    anything could be healthier than a diet of sausages and
    bacon cheeseburgers, the concept of the diet with books,
    papers, and e-newsletters. The display, for all intents and purposes, looks to be the exact same
    human nature. This means that the opportunity to make these calls is
    pretty limited for now. So here is the recipe.
