I hauled three huge, heavy boxes of books to Goodwill yesterday, because I had cleaned off the shelves on either side of the fireplace. What would possess me to burst into such a fit of cleaning and organizing, you ask? To make room for more Pyrex, of course!
This was the situation before (ugh):
And these are the after photos:
It's hard to take a decent picture in this room. The camera flash lights up all the bricks, and it really doesn't look like that in real life. The non-flash pics are blurry but closer to the way the room really looks.
Eh, whatever, just concentrate on the Pyrex.
I know there's a little Fire King Gay Fad dish in there, but it's hiding there (in plain sight) until Christmas.
And here are some thrifting finds from last Sunday:
This little dish looked like an early piece, but I don't really know anything about it. Unfortunately, the glass is pretty etched. Is there any way to fix that?
At any rate, I liked it because it was different from other Pyrex I've seen, with its small tab handles. For 99 cents, I couldn't just leave it stranded.
My husband is developing a keen Pyrex-spotting eye. These were all his finds just as I was starting to give up hope of finding anything. Turns out I was in the wrong aisle!
