There is nothing more cheerful in my kitchen than vintage Pyrex. I love imagining how the pieces might been used in someone else's kitchen long ago. How will I use it, what food memories will I make when I fill this bowl, this mug or this plate with something yummy?
I have a short tower of gold/brown toned casserole dishes, each one with a glass lid. A few I found at my local thrift store, but two were given to me by my friend Jen, from her mother-in-law's estate.
Here they are!
After more than a year of collecting vintage Pyrex, I've had to scale back. This is a hobby that can quickly get out of hand. In the beginning, I'd snatch up any and all vintage Pyrex, but it's so plentiful that I've learned to be selective. Now I only collect certain colors and patterns; many I just gave away to friends. Forest Fancies? Not my style. Too eighties, in my opinion.
But Pyrex from the 40s, 50s and 60s or anything cheerful? I find that hard to resist.
