ocean filigree find

I am finding now that my collection has gotten pretty hefty
there are very few pieces I feel that I just have to have
I've loved the Ocean Filigree Casserole with Hugger Cradle for some time
but was pretty sure I would never see it in person
or never for a price I would pay
but today was apparently a lucky day
so here is the newest piece I'm swooning over in my kitchen
the colors just make me happy
and the plastic hugger cradle is SO different than any other Pyrex cradles
happy hunting everyone - today was most likely 
my last pyrex hunting outing for a bit
[so why not go out big]
seeing as my due date for my first little one is looming
so I look forward to seeing all the lovelies everyone finds in the coming weeks

A little Yellow and Pink love...

It has been ages since I have purchased any vintage Pyrex... and then I came across these little beauties. 

Check here for my deep thoughts on loving Pyrex... Farm Girl Pink....

Seriously, it had been since last Summer, that I had found any Pyrex that I felt the need to bring home...

A Rare Find?

Hi Everyone!

When you think of the 1-1/2 quart Butterprint Cinderella #442 you think of this, right?
Turquoise with white graphics.  This is the way it is supposed to look, right??
So then what is up with this #442 that is white with turquoise graphics?  When I found it at Goodwill today, it took me a few minutes to realize that what I had put in my cart was not the norm. I was buying it as backup in case the one I had broke.  But the one I had was turquoise with white!
Evidently I found something rare and for $3!!  Now I am on a mission to put together a complete white with turquoise Cinderella bowl set. Wonder how long that will take?

Until next time...

100 Pieces of Pyrex - Prints

So after many months I have finally set up a way to make my 100 pieces of Pyrex illustrations available. I set up my own Zazzle Store. I have added several versions of the 100 piece collection. I have also put a few note and greeting cards on there. I also ordered a print of the light blue version to make sure the quality was what I expected and it was fabulous. The poster is 12 inch by 12 inch, and it looks great in a floating frame that is 14 inch by 14 inch. You can also purchase it framed at Zazzle (I think), for an extra cost. Feel free to contact me if you would like a specific pattern in a poster or picture of it's own!.

A New Booth

Don't you love it when you go into an antique mall that you frequent weekly and you see that there is a new seller?  Even better when that new seller carries Pyrex!
I got this Snowflake 045 with lid for $7.99.  Just in time for the holidays!
This Snowflake Space Saver was $3.99.  I already had a lid for it.
This large 503 turquoise refrigerator dish was the deal of the day.  Even though the booth had a good amount of Pyrex, I don't think that the seller was very knowledgable about certain pieces.  The tag on this dish said "Plain Blue Pyrex Casserole Dish w/Lid-No Print".  The price reflected that description....$4.99!  It's perfect too.  No flaws whatsoever.

I love this new booth!  Not only were the prices great, I was able to pick up 3 pieces in the color that I collect that I didn't already have.

It was a good day.

Until next time...

Clear Pyrex

Every week on my way to my statistics class I stop by the GW (to motivate/reward myself for actually going). Here lately I've been finding a lot of clear pieces, like this 595 divided dish I picked up for a buck!
