I must really be into this Pyrex thing, because I just did something I swore I would never do: buy Pyrex on eBay! I even said it in this very space- "I prefer the thrill of the hunt, and I would never buy Pyrex online!"
Ouch. It hurts when words come back to bite you.
But in my defense, it was pink, and it was a good deal. Did I mention it was pink?
$9.99 plus shipping.
And I have to say that the seller did a phenomenal job with the packing. I was really worried, seeing some of the eBay horror stories, about the condition it might arrive in. But I think I got my money's worth in bubble wrap alone (I will be re-using it; that stuff is expensive!), not to mention a beautiful pink 503.
So what brought about the change of heart?
Well, seeing some of the alternative sets some of you guys have put together inspired me. I had this idea to make an alternative set of 503s, and just needed the pink one to finish it:
I do love these colors together.
And it proves that Primary (the yellow 503) can coexist with my pink, turquoise and black.
See, it's all about rationalization!
