Erin posted about a Daisy/Sunflower piece earlier this week and it reminded me I had one to talk about as well. This one was for sale in my etsy shop. I had found it with the stand. I don't know if that originally came with it or not. It's a divided dish and I never used it...what do you cook in a divided dish? I'd really love to hear what you guys use it for, I'm stumped.
My Sister in Law saw it and asked if I'd sell it to her sans shipping because we live near each other. She said "I really love Pyrex and my mom has the sunflower set. I've adored it for my whole life!" I had no idea she was into Pyrex I can't wait to talk to her about this!
I will just give it to her, I can't see myself charging family for Pyrex!

This is a little bowl that I scored a few months ago at one of my favorite little thrift stores. I walked by it several times before I picked it up. I really didn't think it was Pyrex, but something told me to turn it over and look. As you can see, it is marked Pyrex and and under that England. I've had no luck whatsoever in finding out anything about this bowl (i.e. pattern name, when it was produced). Does anyone know anything about it??

So, you know that Pyrex piece we all have, tucked away in an upper cabinet somewhere, lonely, mismatched (don't get me wrong, I love my mismatched pieces!), and (*gasp*) unused? One of my very first pieces was the 443 bowl in the pink Gooseberry Cinderella set. As I collected more pieces, and my tastes changed a bit, poor little pinky was relegated to the top shelf of a cabinet. I've even considered putting it in my to sell or gift pile for a few months, but for some reason, just never did.
Yesterday, to celebrate finishing the first draft of my graduate thesis (yay!) I went junking for the afternoon. Lo and behold, guess what I found at the flea market? The matching 441 and 444 bowls! Huh. So maybe that's why I've been holding on to the loner all this time! At less than $15 for both, I snapped them up. They're really in great shape, too. All that's left is the 442, and I'll have a beautiful new set!
My name is Amy and I am proud to be apart of The Pyrex Collective.
What do I do when the kids are in school? I go junking!!! Here are my 3 lil finds from yesterday.
Fire King (1PT), dainty, wheat, casserole dish with lid for $2.
Then I found the pretty, orange, wheat Pyrex (# 472-B 750 mi) for $1. I believe I have an extra lid for it too.
An sometimes I even hit the junk shops twice in one day (wut?!?). This pretty fridge dish w/ yellow flower (501 B 1 1/2c) $.75.
Hoss (my 7y/o) was looking at these this morning and he asked me if he could start collecting Pyrex too.

we have been together for three amazing years, and i've always known he was a keeper. but when he walked up to my desk at work and handed me this book with a huge (look what good thing i did) smile on his face, i got goosebumps.
ladies (and gentlemen) i love this man!
I am head-over-heels in love!
It's a darker pink than the ones I've seen so far, more like a watermelon hue. Now after I saw the JAJ stamp, I thought this was it, but no, there isn't a JAJ stamp, just a crown:
I'm somewhat sure it's Pyrex, but couldn't find that crown stamp anywhere. Regardless, for $4.50, I think it's a find and I'm quite happy with it.

A.G.M ad (the ad's right down the bottom of the page)
It still has an agee backstamp, although the text has now flipped so you can read it from the bottom.
