a present

gift from mom

I think one of the greatest things that has happened since I began collecting Pyrex was when family and friends started looking out for me when they´d go thrifting. My mom found this piece for me; it´s in excellent condition and the pattern is a new favorite. Black and white looks good with anything anytime of year, but I think I´ll find some bright orange candies to fill it with come the Hallowe´en season! It seems like something a cool witch would have in her home. ;)

three bowls

Lucky me! I found the striped and pink bowls for $2.95 ea.; my mom surprised me with the aqua bowl when she recently came to visit. My Pyrex collection has turned into a pastel paradise. What more could I want? Oh, just that: more!

pink, blue, brown


5 thrift shops, 2 hours, 6 pieces, $17 = glee.

What can I say? Patience is a virtue, especially if you collect Pyrex exclusively from thrift stores. While there have been many misses lately, today was one hit after the next. I spent the afternoon thrifting and found all of these pieces. But who's counting! The important thing is, I finally picked up my first red + yellow bowls in good condition and my first piece of the Frost Garland pattern. I haven't been this lucky in months!
