The Gift Of Pyrex
Lately I've really been having a difficult time getting out to my usual treasure hunting spots. My ankle has pretty much had it! Though I feel like I "won" because I pretty much pushed it as far it would go. I made it through the summer! And that was my goal. And although the flea markets go through September here in MN, my 2012 season will have to end next weekend, since my surgery is Aug. 23rd.
My Mom and Sister have been keeping an eye out for Pyrex for me!
My Mom brought me these 4 bowls home from up north last weekend! I FINALLY have the two largest Butterprints! And the other two are my first in the Friendship pattern. I love you Mom! And not because of the Pyrex...you know that. :)
Excuse the terrible pics. Right now I do everything when it's dark outside...except sleeping!
My sister Angie found the Turquoise Mixing Bowls and the Yellow Gooseberry at an antique store in southern MN. My mom found the cool orange bowl at the Goowill for .99!
OK so I better show you what I was able to round up myself! Because I'm not down for the count YET!
The square baking pan is not red, it's actually really cute pink! I paid $12.95 for it at an antique store because I LOVE IT! And I will use it a ton for brownies! I found the 2 Bake, Serve & Stores just yesterday at the Goodwill for $4.99 total! And I still can't believe that I own that UGLY "Old Orchard" little bowl, but when it's in a display it will look better!
OK Here is confession time. Because I now had the two smaller Gooseberry bowls for dirt cheap, I found a listing on Ebay that had just the two larger ones...and I now have a set! I also found the turquoise pie plate on Ebay. But I happened apon a Buy It Now for $10!
This was the "Summer of Pyrex" for me! And it was so much fun! It was like Easter egg hunting. I managed to collect just under 100 pieces in about 4 months! And the only pieces I bought on Ebay were the ones that I just showed you.
There are a few specific pieces that I would still like to find. But otherwise I think I'm going to wrap up this collection. Wish me luck! I hear that it's very difficult! :)
Wellie and I wish you a great weekend and thank you for following!
