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!
The (almost) happy family.
Nice to "meet" you all!
