Bar Keepers Friend Contest

Hello my Pyrex Buddies,

Over the years people have written about the proper way to clean vintage Pyrex. Bar Keepers Friend is a name that has popped up frequently as a cleaning agent that works for removing some stains from vintage Pyrex. 

I was approached in good spirit by a representative from Bar Keepers Friend to do some publicity for the product. They have generously offered the gift basket you see pictured for each of the three Pyrex Collectives. 

Do you have an idea for a contest? 

Please email me with ideas. I will take submissions by the end of the weekend and hope to launch the contest next Monday.

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!
