New Obsession.....Pyrex

I know, I're probably all like - duh, Pyrex rocks, where have you been??!!!  Despite my best efforts to not get pulled into collecting Pyrex....I have succumb to it's awesomeness and the thrill of the thrift. There really is nothing like sifting through people's junk just to find your own little treasure! It started when I went to a local church sale and my mom and I saw a set of bowls. I bought it after some convincing from my mom, but I'm so glad I did! It's been about a week and here's what I've got so far.

Here's the original set! Three turquoise Butterprint. I think this might actually be a set of four, but I only have these three. I'm still trying to figure out what everything is! Thank goodness for Pyrex Love to reference!

The first trip I made to Goodwill in search of Pyrex I found these. A Forest Fancies little bowl and a Butterfly Gold butter grease bowl thingy! Pippen is using it to eat out of now.

My mom brought me this one from her stuff! She showed me all the ones she has today to see if I wanted any! I just don't have room, good gracious! She has a couple really pretty casserole dishes! The same day she gave me this Snowflake divided dish, I found....

....this at Goodwill! I searched up and down the aisles a few times and found nothing, then when trying to find my husband I saw this sitting Verde divided dish on an endcap! The lid has a small not quite chip on one of the handles, but it's hardly noticeable. At first I wasn't sure if these really went together (my mom has a casserole with this lid), but after some Pyrex Love research I think they do go together.  

I got these today. I waited for the Goodwill color to change to get the Golden Honeysuckle casserole (need to look for a lid) and was hoping this lime green square casserole dish would still be there, but it wasn't. Oh well, because I found these two Autumn Harvest round casseroles! The small one was missing its lid, but luckily I also bought some lids last weekend knowing that people mentioned a lot that they found pieces missing lids, and sure enough one of those lids fits this little dish perfectly!

I'm really hoping someday I will find a piece in pink that isn't too much. My mom found a set of three mixing bowls at an antique store at the beach, but they wanted $72. I found a set of four at a local vintage store but they weren't perfect and they were still $65. Just a bit too much for my liking. I think I will stick to thrift stores and estate sales. Hopefully I will be able to find some cool pieces and have some fun with this new hobby!


  1. My mom remembers all of those, it brings back memories to her!!


  2. Mummy got two sets of casserole dishes when she got married 27 years ago. One set she is still using and the other set hasn't even come out of the box yet! I think she thought she may have dropped one or two by now :)xx

  3. Mom & Dad received two sets of mixing bowls for their wedding almost 38 years ago. Then for christmas that same year they received casserole dishes. Between pyrex & corelle our life is much easier. Love them.
