1958 pyrex find

welcome, dear pyrex lover. we all know why you're here, so i'll just jump into the good stuff and save my introduction for the bottom of the post...

here you go:

pyrex spring promotion 1958 decorator with lid

ahhh :-)

why yes, that's a lid! i think the only thing missing is the cradle. purchased at the obscenely low price of $2.99.

all i know about it is that it's a 1958 spring promotion - vaguely named "decorator"...

anyone know more about this?

wait! don't go! my introduction...
my name is ana, and i have a blog over at i made it so. don't worry, i don't inundate you with glitter and glue crafts. i try to fill my little space online with things i make, bake (served on pyrex), vintage thrifty finds (mostly pyrex), and lots of photos (of pyrex. and other stuff i s'pose).

if you can pop by, that'd be cool... stick around, i'll be sharing a post over there in a few days which will be very much pyrex heavy. not teasing, just warning sharing.

thanks erin, for the chance to share here, and to everyone else who loves pyrex as much as i do. you know. you all make me feel more... normal ;-)
