Hi fellow Pyrex lovers! I'm new here! I started collecting Pyrex in the beginning of college about 15 years ago. My mom bought me one Snowflake space saver covered casserole (because I loved snowflakes) and it started a collecting passion for me. Mostly over the years, I have only stuck to collecting Snowflake and Snowflake Garland (AKA Snowflake Blue) patterns. This year, I have branched out a bit with the help of my mom and sister to start collecting Spring Blossom and a few other random pieces that capture my attention.
I live in a very rural part of eastern Washington state. We have a Walmart (Walley World as we like to call it) and a Safeway in our town and that is it! We literally have 4 stop lights in our entire town. I do enjoy thrifting and garage saling when I can and living in a farming/wheat land area of the state means you can find some neat vintage and antique finds if you try hard enough:)
I only went to ONE garage sale this weekend and again, branched out of my typical collecting character to purchase this "Floral Bubbles" (AKA "Danish Floral") covered casserole with a burner! It was on a half off table of a garage sale marked down to $4 for the whole set! It looks as if it was hardly ever used! The lady I purchased it from, said it was her sisters, who was also selling a few "Old Orchard" pieces and some very fun retro 60's and 60's fondue pots and kitchen ware.
I had no knowledge of this casserole and still don't really know much about it. I figured it was somewhat rare because in all my years of collecting, I did not remember ever having seen it before. Now that I have done some research online, I read on Pyrex Love that they believe it is a promotional casserole that did come with the burner set. It is a 045 and 2.5 qt in size.
Does anyone else have any more information on this piece?
I had just picked up these retro Owl knits at a nearby thrift store for about $1 a peice. I think the fall colors and patterns go nicely together!
I to have my own blog where I write about another passion of mine, the holidays. It is called The Happy Holiday Girl blog. Stop by anytime!
Looking forward to being a part of this Pyrex blog, sharing finds and cheering for others!
