How It All Began

Hello! My name is Jan and I'm so excited to be a part of this blog. My friend Heather blogs on PCII and told me about all of the PC sites. I began collecting Pyrex just this pass fall. My husband and I decided that we should get rid of all of our plastic storage containers in which we store our leftovers. My friend, Kellee, has been collecting Pyrex for quite some time and when I saw her dishes I got to thinking. Old vintage Pyrex comes in all sorts of cute designs and they would be perfect for storing our leftovers. Thus began my new addiction with collecting Pyrex. It's all I use for cooking now.
This set of Forest Fancies bake n' serve was my very first Pyrex purchase. I was so excited to find whole set and with lids! I find the little mushrooms to be fun and cute.

Not long after getting my Forest Fancies I received this fun set of Spring Blossoms mixing bowls as a gift. They've become a staple in my home. I use them daily in my cooking.

My collection has grown immensely in just a few short months. It might have something to do with living near many thrift stores and the fact that my children now love to thrift as well. I blog about our family adventures over at just*imagine*heaven, so feel free to visit and say, "hi." I have a lot more Pyrex to blog about, but I'll save that for another day. :)


  1. I'm so glad you joined the PC3, Jan!

    I didn't know your kids liked to thrift... just another thing I'm jealous of. When Eisley sees the Goodwill sign now she moans, "Noooo, this isn't home! Let's go home, mom!" Lol.

    And could you maybe tone down your photography a bit? It's making the rest of us look bad...


  2. I love the glow you got on the Spring Blossom. Pretty.
