Vintage Bliss Tuesdays Linky Party #3

Yum

Ever since I told my mom that Pyrex is hard to come by (in our area at least) she has been keeping an eye out and picking up pieces for me. She uses her seniors discount too, so she gets great bargains. I have no plans to become a big collector of Pyrex, primarily because my kitchen cupboards are completely full. I am constantly rearranging them to try to fit more dishes. But I gratefully accept the little beauties that my mom gifts to me now and then.



The last time I saw her, Mom gave me this little red (dark orange?) Pyrex dish, complete with lid. It's a little bit scratched up, but I don't mind. I imagine that it was used often and provided many a meal to its owners. (I'm thinking they served green peas - somehow I just see it with green peas in it.)

Do you collect Pyrex?

  1. oh my goodness I missed another linky party! I have only veeery recently started looking out for Pyrex. I saw some old pink Pyrex and the blue/turquoise Pyrex on Etsy and eBay and as much as I'd love to buy it all I can't justify the $$$! So I'm keeping an eye out in thrift stores. My mum still has a couple of vintage bowls in the dark olive and the mustard colours and the other day she found a plain white Pyrex mixing bowl in the garage that I pounced on. I can't believe how much Pyrex we had growing up, it's mostly all gone now. One of my aunts had so much, she could have opened a shop. I don't know if the pink and blues were widely available in Australia as my relatives don't recall it.

    1. You'll catch the party one day I'm sure. :) Pink Pyrex would be lovely. I won't spend much on it either, again because I don't really have the space to start a collection! I don't think we had much Pyrex growing up. If we did, my mom would still have it. ;)

  3. I always buy Pyrex when it is in good shape and reasonably priced. I resell it as I have enough. LOL! Thanks for the party. Dianne

  5. I adore Pyrex! We've got a few pieces (and I'm ashamed to say we've broken a few too).

    1. Ouch! That had to hurt. My husband has broken a few of my vintage finds, and I begin to wonder if they are all accidents. ;)

  6. my gran always uses the smaller sized pyrex with glass lids for jell-o desserts. (yuck!) i much prefer the green peas - perhaps with a bit of corn as well? ;)

  8. I am just starting to collect Pyrex too. I definitely don't pay a lot for it, I've found pieces for 1.00, 50 cents, up to 6.00 for a big dish, it's even more fun to find when I get a really good bargain : )

    1. That's for sure! A great bargain is always fun...even if we don't need the item. ;)

  10. I am pretty well at my limit for Pyrex, I've gotten rid of quite a bit but it still seems like I have way too much.

    1. There's just something about using a vintage, colourful dish isn't there? It really adds to the baking experience. :)

  12. I'm not a big thrifter, but Pyrex is one of those things that makes me swoon. I don't know why, but I love the stuff. I have a very small collection, mostly greens and yellows. I wish it was easier to come by!

    1. Who can explain why we love these things? Your collection sounds nice, with greens and yellows. :)

  13. I don't collect it because I'm out of space too. If I ever found one of those fluted pieces with a lid I'd definitely keep it!

    1. At least you can limit yourself to that one special piece! I need to work on that! ;)

  14. oooo... I do love pyrex dishes. They are just nostalgic and wonderful AND useful!!! I wish I had your blue one! I've not been to a charity shop in months in an effort to curb clutter and spending! But I confess seeing your photos does make me have the urge to look!! J9 x

  15. I love these little pyrex dishes - they are even better if you find them with lids. I love and use mine all the time!
