Pyrex, Need I Say More?

Okay, it's no secret I'm a Pyrex addict.  How bad my addiction is--I don't know.  Wonder if someone has a self test out there.  Having come to terms with this fact, I have decided I am going to openly celebrate my Pyrex!!!  I'll refrain from shouting from the roof tops, but I am going to shamelessly start posting my hoard.  I might add that dear hubby hasn't helped any in this as he has really come to enjoy hunting for it with me.  He gets such a thrill when he comes around a corner and holds up a find that he's pretty sure I'll go nuts over--yesterday it was a pink gooseberry Cinderella bowl!

I have this really nice sized peninsula in my kitchen where I display some of my Pyrex. We use it daily--it's right there and handy.  I like to change it every so often. I don't buy mine to look at, I buy it to use and enjoy!   I'm going to snap a pic and post when I put up new patterns and colors.  Here are my turquoise...Butterprint and Snowflake collection so far.  I'm missing the two smallest Cinderella bowls and have only one mixing bowl in this pattern.  There is much to find yet!  I'm behaving myself and only buying thrift stores finds and no Ebay or Etsy!!!!

  1. Great post Evie!! I am especially jealous of that butter dish I spy in that picture but am continuing my search to hopefully find one some day. I'm in the same boat too! Only thrift stores for me and not getting hooked on Pyrex buying through eBay and esty

  4. PJ, I don't know what the promotional patterns were--I have to go look it up! That must have been awfully exciting!!! Aren't our boys sweet! Sometimes I let my hubby rush to the bakeware aisle and I'll look at the knick-knacks just so he has the chance to find something and surprise me!

    1. Evie, yes I was so happy he found 3 pieces of Christmas Pyrex in the same antiwue mall. I was searching all over for them and bam he spots them!

      If you want to see the promotional items for Pyrex go to pyrexlove.com you will find everything there! I love the snowflake promos and christmas too!
      Your husband seems nice, sometimes I hear that husbands hate their wife's Pyrex and doesn't let them keep it!!! How horrible. We are two lucky girls =)

    2. Ah! I was thinking you meant a promotional Butterprint! (tee-hee) Oh yes, I've been drooling over the promotionals on Pyrex Love! I'd love to find a Christmas one. I ran into one but didn't get it as I was trying to narrow my focus--now I regret it :0(

    3. I know the feeling of seeing something and not buying it! I don't do that anymore!! If I see it and it's at a reasonable price I will snatch it up. I just need to get the promo of the merry christmas and happy new year green mixing bowl! That one is so expensive though =o

  5. I like Pyrex too..pink or turquoise ! Harder to find, but fun to look. Milk glass is my real obsession...been collecting it for 20+ years....and my husband "helps" my addiction too! Lol!
