VACATION PYREX

I've been on vacation...Chelan area in Washington State and Portland, Oregon.  Here's what I found!

My husband was at a meeting...the day before vacation.  He called me from a V.V.  The conversation went something like this.
"Hey, I've got this Pyrex bowl...."
"What does it look like?"
"It's little and it's got these blue canoe's on it."
"Blue Canoe's?"
"Well, that's what it looks like."
"How much?"
"Five Bucks"
"Get it...I'm too curious now."

Can You believe he had part of "The Eyes!?!"  And it wasn't even marked Pyrex on the bottom!  The man is good!


Red Fridgie, found at a church Yard Sale for $1!

Found the blue Fridgie thrifting...yippee!  Both of these have the before 1950's mark on it.

Found lids for .50 ea at a thrift and Yard sale for my cool "Jetson" bowls!

Served grapes to friends in Green "Jetson" bowl!

This is a great restaurant on the way to Chelan, WA

They used "Fridgies" for condiments



Found this at a fantastic Antique Mall called Apple Annie's in Cashmere, WA. (Golden Poinsettias)  I paid more than I've paid for any Pyrex (I usually am a thrift under $5 person) but we were on vacation...and it's Christmas...and it had the candle warmer thingy with 50 year old candles still in it!  All firsts for me.

Oh, how I've wanted this!  At an antique mall in Wenatchee, WA...cheap!

Found another red fridgie and thrifted the yellow to complete the set.  Hubby used the "Magic Eraser" (New for me) and scrubbed black stuff off of it.

I found this curious piece (Golden Honeysuckle) for $2 at a Portland, OR Goodwill.  I picked it up thinking it was NOT Pyrex, it's so unusual.  It's part of a short lived line of Oblong pans.

This baby was found a the Goodwill Superstore in Portland...it was indeed, Super!

OK, I also just did some fun photos of stuff I already had...





I leave you with a Rainbow of Pyrex!

  5. Canoes! I love it! I don't think "eyes" is the official name, there is still time to change it to "canoes".

  9. I love so much about this post!
    I laughed about the "canoes"! That's something one of my family members would call it too.
    I love that the Diner used Pyrex, how cute is that?!
    And your Pyrex rainbow is awesome :)
