The Hostess With The Mostess Hostess?

Hi Everyone!

Since I started collecting Pyrex, I have been picking up the little red square bowls whenever I see them in hopes that I would find the large red bowl and lid someday.
The only time I had ever seen the large Hostess bowl in person was when my sister snagged one at Goodwill when we were out thrifting one day.  I wasn't too mad at her because the one she got was yellow and I was hunting for the red one.
Then a few weeks ago, I found these three companion bowls to the large yellow bowl at SVDP.  Now I had to find a yellow and a red?  I could have just been nice and given these to my sister since she had the larger bowl but Pyrex always makes me a little greedy.  A few days after I found these, my sister, BFF Rachel, and I went on our annual girls trip.  At one antique mall, I spotted both the yellow and the red but couldn't bring myself to pay the crazy high prices.  Once I got home, I thought that maybe, just maybe, SVDP may have put out the larger bowl and guess what......
They did!  I searched high and low for the lid but it was nowhere to be found.  Then, that same week, I found this at an estate sale
This was just getting to be too much for me.  Now if I could only find a yellow lid. 

Last Friday I went to a yard sale that promised "100's of Pyrex dishes".  Care to guess what the first thing I grabbed was?
Yep.  Another yellow Hostess dish with the lid!  So just in case anyone is losing track, here is the yellow
And the red

I'm not sure I should mention this, but with the exception of two of the small red bowls, every single piece was acquired in a 10 day period.  Crazy, I know.

You won't hear me complaining about a dry spell!

Until next time.....



  1. That is C-R-A-Z-Y!

    What good luck you have! I'm green with envy ;)

  2. It never rains but pours! Hope this isn't all you find for the next little while.

  3. I have the yellow, but also need the lid, I've picked up a turquoise one too thats missing the lid. I just need to fine a red big bowl- and 2 more big square bowls scratched up (so I can spray paint them pink and green for "looks") Dont cha just love it when the Pyrex come flowing in!

  4. Love it because I have the red! Got the bowl with no lid and 4 small bowls..then my friend found the red with the lid..funny thing it is slightly smaller? Enjoy, we had Cinco De Mayo buffet and used them!

  5. I love happy stories like yours! I also am in need of a big red lid and the turquoise chip bowl to go with the cute little turquoise dip bowl that I found. I'm also fantasizing about the rose chip and dip set.
