Hello there my good Pyrex people! It's Anna popping over from Victory Garden Yarn to share my latest pieces of Pyrex happiness!
One benefit of using a few found objects for my crafting business is that I am forced to go on quite extensive thrifting excursions on a somewhat regular basis. Bummer, eh? I'm always hunting for gently used vintage embroidery hoops...but you know, the housewares section is usually located two steps away from the craft section in most of the thrifts...
So they make it really easy for me to get a little business AND pleasure taken care of! I have dreams of owning an entire set of dove grey Pyrex dinnerware, so two salad plates and two teacups (even with a bit of a gold stripe still intact!) are a good start. Pink Gooseberry is always welcome on my (slightly bowing with too much weight) shelves. My Pink Gooseberry count has risen from one to three, yippee!
The opal loaf pan may look like your ordinary loaf pan...but when I consulted my handy dandy Pyrex spreadsheet that I carry around with me at all times (more on that some other day...) I realized that this one is actually a half inch larger on all sides than the one I already own. Score! I actually use my loaf pans a lot; not just for baking, but around the house and on shelves to corral my wayward mail, pens, business cards, fabric, you name it. The same with the few small fridgies I have found; quarters for laundry, business cards (ooh, that gives me a good idea for my upcoming craft booths, yes!), little bits of yarn I might need for package tying...fridgies are perfect!
And that teeny tiny little carafe looks quite familiar! I think I'll be putting some colored pencils in it to go with my other small glass carafe!
Which leads me to ask all you lovely people the question: What do you use your Pyrex for, other than baking and drooling over on your beautiful display shelves?
