I’ve been collecting pyrex from the thrift store for a few years. I know it’s a trendy thing to collect pyrex these days, but I’m solidly on that bandwagon because it’s so useable! I use my pieces almost every day – they’re so pretty and so practical at the same time. That said, I’m trying to only buy pieces that I will actually use. I’m determined not to become a hoarder, so there have been times I’ve come across Pyrex pieces at the thrift store and passed them up because I’m limiting myself to pieces in colors I use on a daily basis (mainly primary colors) or don’t already have (pink & turquoise). In other words, I’m not going to buy more harvest gold, just because it’s there.
The Snowflake Blue is my new favorite pattern. I only have one little Corelle saucer to hang on my wall, so this is a pattern I’ve been actually looking for. I found a great little casserole in perfect condition, plus the cutest little creamer.
A little Colonial Mist baker. Okay, this wasn’t a real ‘need’ but I have a mixing bowl in this pattern and it’s one of my favorites.
And finally two mixing bowls. The little yellow mixer is my favorite size for whipping up eggs in the morning – I use it every day. I’ve been looking for a piece of red Pyrex forever and a day and this is my first piece. So now I can rest easier in that elusive hunt.
And as further proof that these are the colors that speak to me right now: new goods from Target. Couldn’t resist.
Hope everyone has a happy summer week. Now back to the Olympics.
