pyrex de-clutter!

its no secret i collect pyrex. and its also no secret that this collection takes up more space than say baseball cards or coins. so it was time for a little de-cluttering and re-organizing.

((( side note: everything pictured above had either been traded or is "for trade" on my flickr. i highly reccomend checking it out!)))


and with a clean slate i was ready to put all my similar patterns together and stream-line my whole collection.

i literally sat and admired my pyrex shelf for close to an hour. i would say "don't judge me" but i know most of you do the same thing... so i'm not worried. haha
