I came across the Pyrex Collective where I discovered I was now the proud owner of a Pink Daisy casserole dish.
I've been following the Collective, and other Pyrex junkies, for a while now and I'm tickled pink to be an author on this newest one.
Of course, this was no generic dish. I discovered this advertisement from 1956, where my 1.5 quart casserole was listed for only $4.50! I figured if people paid that much over 50 years ago, then $5 was a steal for today.
Since acquiring that first piece however, I have become somewhat obsessed with Butterfly Gold and any refridgerator Pyrex. On several occasions, the Pink Daisy dish has almost found its way out the door, heading to another thrift shop to make some other collector happy. (I have what seems to be the smallest kitchen in America. I covet some of your collections posted here but I have no space to store the stuff.) It doesn't match anything else in my kitchen plus I haven't seen enough pieces available around here to start collecting this pattern.
But I can't seem to part with it. Not just yet. It reminds me of the day I discovered Pyrex for its true worth.
