New to the Group and Pyrex Collecting

Hi everyone.  I am new to the group and to Pyrex collecting.  I must say I am now addicted and have even had dreams about finding Pyrex. lol.  It all started a little more than a week ago (the 17th) with these two great bowls.

Butterfly Gold 4 quart and 2-1/2 quart bowls.
I had gone to the Goodwill store looking for crafty things and old quilts with no luck.  I was about ready to leave empty handed when I spied these sitting on a bottom shelf.  I'm pretty sure I let out a little squeal.  I was so happy to see these two bowls, and without a scractch or chip on either of them. Isn't it funny how seeing something like this can give you warm fuzzies? My great-grandmother and grandmothers had beautifully colored Pyrex mixing bowls and casserole dishes when I was growing up. I remember paying more attention to what the food was in than what the food was. lol. 
I thought they were a steal at $3.00 each.
Now when I go to the Goodwill store I'll be looking for old quilts, craft items, books, and Pyrex.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.



  1. Great find! I love butterfly gold and don't have those two, so, JEALOUS! Especially for 3 bucks a pop! Enjoy them!

  2. Score! And welcome to Pyrexville! I've only been collecting for about 4's sooo fun!

  3. I must admit, I thought your blog was called "Sews Crappy Quilts" at first glance and giggled a little.

    But in all seriousness, isn't Pyrex the best? I am newish to it too, but become more addicted by the day. Great finds :-)

  4. Very fun addiction :) i read your quilting blog- nice work!!! What a proud, selfless cause! So very generous of you!

  5. Welcome to the collective! :)

  6. Thanks everyone. I've been going back to read older posts and I really enjoy seeing what you all find.
