I was playing with my Pyrex at Christmas and came up with a little shelf I was happy with. I just put together some reds, greens, blues and snowflakes and was happy enough with it :) Sorry about the picture quality, I was trying to use the panoramic feature on my phone!
A few of my favorite pieces were on this shelf. I love my green dots bowl. I won that off of a poorly labeled E-bay auction. I think its title was "pyrex bowl". I also adore my 024 bowls. I want every color they made, lol. They are so practical and pretty, especially when stacked with other bright colors!
Christmas came and left and I knew I wanted something else before going back to mismatched pieces everywhere. I decided to go with a blue winter theme! Several of my favorite pieces were included in this and one of my most favorites was in the fridge when I took the picture! I adore my Saxony piece with all my heart. It was an Etsy buy but with shipping it cost me less than $20. I would pay more for that in a store so I was thrilled to find one randomly like that. I also love the Bluebird piece. That was a birthday gift from a friend who collects Pyrex. She even gave me her extra lid so as to not gift it without one...that's true friendship right there ;) The tulip piece is another winner for me! A sweet woman in our church saw it while shopping in Branson with her friends. She text me and showed the me the picture and said it was $15 and asked if I wanted it. Um, YESSSSSS! I am so grateful I have friends looking out for me and my Pyrex :) I have the Butterprint bowl set that is near and dear to me because my husband bought it for me for Christmas a few Christmases ago. He was so proud of his find! I also love my little turquoise 024! I found that while wasting time in my hometown when we went to visit for Christmas. It was $8 and in lovely condition. Last but not least is my sweet little balloon bowl. It's got quite a bit of irreversible wear and tear on it but a friend found it and sent it to me for my birthday. I had no idea she even knew it was my birthday so to send a gift so precious was well appreciated!
The piece I mentioned that was in the fridge is this one:
The blue barcode. Be still my beating heart. All in that picture were found while on vacation in Seattle. The two 024s were actually a Craigslist find while we were there. We drove to meet the sweet lady at her apartment. The prices were right and as I said, I love that style. I had hoped to find more in thrift stores but everything I did see was something I either had or didn't care for. We hit up a flea market that had a beautiful small display of Pyrex. Prices were a big higher then I would ever pay at home but I was upset I would be flying home without anything so I bit the bullet and paid for the barcode dish. It was "only" $35 but to see it in the wild and in such great shape (and not to mention we saved a lot of money for this trip and didn't seem to spend much of it) I couldn't leave it behind. The carafe was from another seller in the same little store and was marked a measly $5.
So there you have a bit of my holiday Pyrex and a glimpse into my collection.
With Love and Pyrex,
Meg B :)
