Sally (of here and exploitsofamilitarymama.com) mentioned in her earlier post that she was trying to stay away from filling up her house with little pieces. On one hand, I totally relate--I'm basically out of room at the moment and really should put a moratorium on any more Pyrex-shopping (which will probably not happen). On the other hand, I'm finding that the little bits and pieces of Pyrex are the ones that get the best display in our little home. For instance, my super-random mug and teacup collection:
...and my equally random collection of fridgies, casserole dishes (the largest being a 473), and my precious little dip bowl.
Gazing at these collections is almost as fun as looking at pictures of Pyrex online (something I never knew I would do as an adult). But the only reason I'm able to display these is because they're so tiny. Having four children plus living in a medium-small house plus being an inveterate thrifter of children's items means that the majority of our shelves are filled with books, games, toys, more books, stacks of books, and books hidden behind books.
This relates to my recent finds ($2.99 and $4 in scroll-down order):

What about the rest of you? Are you out of room, Pyrex-wise? Is size a factor when you choose your pieces?
