Pyrex Find - When Bad Equals Good

Some of us crazy Pyrex people actually are happy to have DWD (dishwasher destroyed) pieces, if it's the right one.  Case in point, the Pressed Flowers casserole. This was manufactured with black on yellow paint.  Today I found one that was DWD. It is the dish under the striped bowl.  There was just a little yellow paint left on the underside of the handles, which was super since getting remaining paint off is no small chore.

Cathrineholm - My Frankenset is Complete!

It's been a long hard road to make just one set of Cathrineholm bowls in all the sizes.  I tried as hard as I could to trade for them, but that is not so easy.  I sacrificed and sold some highly desirable Pyrex to finance the Hanova bowl on the bottom and I have no regrets!
