I've been following the posts for a little while now and I am very proud to join the Collective as a contributor. I thought I’d begin by letting you know how my case of Pyrexia started.
My friends and I love to go to garage sales and yard sales, and one early Saturday morning, many many years ago, I came across this:
... and fell in love! The color, the shape, the scroll, the usefulness – what’s not to love! I don’t remember exactly how much I paid for it, but I'm sure it wasn't much. So I set out to try and find more pieces with this color and pattern. Well you can all laugh now, because most of you know that this is a promotional item – and no other pieces were done with the exact color and pattern (as far as I know).
So I started to collect pieces I found that had the turquoise color, and found a few at other garage and yard sales:
Well, many years went by with me using my beautiful Pyrex pieces, but not really looking for any more.
Then one day, I happened upon blogs and found amazing people loving Pyrex and writing about it! Well that renewed my interest and I started looking again. All the beautiful colors, patterns and shapes – my eyes have been opened and I now recognize that I am “afflicted” with a case of Pyrexia!
If you’re interested, I’ll tell you later about my latest finds.
This was my first post – ever!! Hope you liked it.
