Yummy Pyrex!

Hi fellow Pyrex fans! My name is Rachael and I am a new author to the Pyrex Collective III. My passion for Pyrex came out of the blue this past summer when I started blogging about new and vintage thrifted finds. I followed other blogs with similar interests and saw all of their cool vintage Pyrex pieces and instantly fell in love. My favorite Pyrex would be primary colored fridgies, with colorful casseroles a close second.

Here is a story about my most recent Pyrex sighting: 

A few days ago, I went to my friend Becky's house for a visit. She is getting ready to sell her house and has been cleaning, dumping, and organizing like crazy. She had mentioned to me on the phone that she found a Pyrex piece that I might enjoy seeing.

This is what I saw when I arrived:

I about fell over, look how beautiful it is! No cracks, chips, or interior utensil scrapes. 

Do you know where she found this lovely example of a Pyrex casserole? At the Goodwill for 7.99! Can you believe it. I mean, it even has the lid! How often do you come across something like this? Like, pretty much, never.

Quiz time! Does anyone know what this pattern is called?

To read the rest of this Pyrex story and to see more photos, come on over and visit my blog, The Thrifty Picker.

Thanks for taking a moment to read my first post here. I have more coming, so stay tuned :)


  1. Hi Rachael! It's a lovely casserole, and it's called Golden Poinsettias; check out the pattern reference at
    Welcome to the addiction!

  2. Thanks HH. I enjoy reading through plove, but tend to get stuck on the site for hours trying to dream up which pattern I want next :)

    1. I sympathize. I printed off the pattern reference and keep it in my kitchen to drool over (oops I mean study) during odd moments. Good hunting!

  3. You have an awesome friend! That dish looks minty. I spend a lot of time on and it's flickr group pool, too. It's a good way to waste time, I think!
