Tickled Pink, Again

Like most days, especially in the winter, I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, surrounded by yumminess and of course, Pyrex! Today, I prepped for a little holiday soiree I'm having this weekend.

Chocolate truffle ganache, jello (for fun shaped table decor), and sugared cranberries all made the cut for Pyrex use: 





Just as I was about to start baking the cookies, I realized I didn't have enough brown sugar. I ran over to the store -- and decided to hit Salvation Army along the way. I am super fortunate to live within a few miles of at least four different thrift stores. Most are along the way to somewhere in my town -- and most have a housewares department that only takes a few minutes to scan. 


Today, right as I neared the end of my 'scan', I found this for a whopping $3: 



It has a small chip on the pink part of the dish, right on the handle, but for $3, it was still worth it for the perfect lid alone!  

I was just at this Salvation Army the other day, and didn't find a thing. But thanks to my poor planning on the brown sugar front, I now have something else to match the Pink Daisy dish I had been contemplating giving away. 


Of course I put the Pyrex to use as soon as those cookies were done. 



Hope your kitchen mishaps lead you to Pyrex prospects as well!

  1. Best score I've seen to date. So immensely jealous :) been hoping for anything solid pink or solid turquoise! Congrats- have a fabulous holiday with all your fun displays (like the idea of jello in the fridgies)!

    1. Thanks! I've seen a lot of plain pink around here -- but most are the mixing bowls that belong on the wall of shame. They all look like they've been through the dishwasher. I'm surprised I found this in such good condition (minus the chip!)

    1. If I don't use the Pyrex, I can't justify buying it ;) I had no room to store it, so it had to be put to use as soon as I cleaned it up.

    1. Thank Daniela! It's actually a pretty clean break and surprisingly smoooth. I'll keep the sandpaper in mind for the future :)

    1. This is the only plain pink fridgie I've ever seen! Even at antique stores I see plenty of the large yellow, blue and red sets, but no pink.
