I've been in a Pyrex dry spell lately, which I'm sure some of you can relate to. I don't have anything new of mine to share, but I did want to share a giveaway that's going on at Lulu & Lolie. We are giving away a Pink Gooseberry 444. All you have to do is comment on the Lulu & Lolie blog to enter.

Snowflake Garland Blue
You can't beat Pyrex for cheerful color on these cold white winter days. That's it, that's all, I just wanted to share a pop of color with YOU.

Happy after the holidays, fellow pyrex lovers!
I hope everyone had their pyrex wishes come true or at least got a nice new (to you) piece of pyrex gifted to you.
Like many of us of the first pyrex blog, I have not posted anything for a really really long time as I haven't been thrifting in months. Ok settle down. Stop gasping. Yes! Such a thing is possible when (and this is really a legitimate excuse) you have so much pyrex (I believe that I'm over the 400 piece mark) that what is at the thrifts you already own. (I keep track by pattern as a list on my iPhone). Yes there are many pieces that I don't own, but for the time and gas money it takes to go peruse the thrifts, I find that if I need to get my pyrex fix that I end up at antique malls.
That being said, I've got two bowl sets that I'm close to completing and would be interested in trading pyrex if anyone was interested. I am looking for a snowflake garland 441 to complete a set to gift to a friend, and also a red homestead 443 to complete a set for myself
I've got duplicates of a few pieces and others that I would be ok to let go for a decent trade. Please feel free to get in touch if you are interested in trading. Extra brownie points for you if you happen to live in the san francisco bay area and can do a local trade.
Thanks pyrex friends!!

I finally completed my Primary Dots set in February of this year. I collected each piece from a different source. The often pricey Green Dot 404 was my final piece- an Etsy score for only $50. The only one I found "in the wild" was the Yellow Dot 402 and it was at a local antique mall for $10. I bought the Orange Dot 401 on eBay for $9.99. Blue Dot 403 was also an eBay purchase for $26.06- an auction win. So, my Primary Dots together cost me $100.04. Not too bad?! Now for some Pyrex eye candy! (for more of my photos, feel to check out and follow my Flickr- you can find me here!
I feel so ashamed as an avid vintage Pyrex collector- it has been ages since I've blogged here! I will share my latest find. I had stopped frequenting my two local antique malls because they were Pyrex-dry. I decided to stop by one a couple of weeks ago and I spotted this beauty after passing it up once. I had actually never seen this one before so I was intrigued. I immediately came home and went to my Flickr for reference. It is unofficially called Ginger Oriental. It is a 475 promo casserole. It originally came with the classic clear lid and a bamboo cradle. Mine is MINT but no cradle. At only $19 I was totally okay with no cradle! I also scored one of the last few pieces I need to have the complete Butterfly Gold 1 collection. It is minty and was only $7. So, sorry I've been MIA. I will try to go back and share more of my Pyrex adventures! Hope everyone is having a wonderful season and Happy Pyrex-ing!
