I finally got a 473 in that special green color! It took a while but I finally found one that wasn't ridiculously priced.  I didn't need the 'Crazy Quilt' lid, I prefer a clear lid. I'm probably in the minority here but I don't care much for the patterned pieces. The 2qt Utility I already had.

Currently my collection looks like this and as of right now I don't have any new pieces on my wish list. Shocking I know! I could use another aqua 8x8" pan and another loaf pan for baking for my shop; Motherfudger.

So what's the story on these green pieces? They're not Verde Green, Spring Blossom Green or Lime Green (which I actually think Pastel Green would be a better name for those and THIS green be called Lime Green) and they're not Primary Green. Were these promotional? Anyone know?

Help Me Identify This JAJ Casserole

I haven't posted on the Collective in ages, I figure that if you have a Pyrex question, this is the best place to come - I found this great JAJ piece today, I've looked on the internet and found one picture of the same casserole, but the pattern wasn't identified there either.  Anybody know what it's called??

It's JAJ, made in England, 524 is the number on the bottom  -  I was really surprised to see it was Pyrex!   Too bad Halloween is just over....  I paid $3

Pyrex Finds!

Breathing some life back into the original collective... 

Here are some of my weekend Pyrex finds! If you're a reader of my blog, Sir Thrift-A-Lot, you've already seen them, but if not, here they are!

Pink Daisy Divided Dish.
I overpaid for this, but wanted to spoil myself with a piece of Pyrex since I got vacation pay from my part time job (hey - anybody in the Toronto area hiring..? haha) & this was the most delicious piece in any of the antique markets that we went into, although I did see ramekins for the first time, but didn't want to pay the high price for them. It wasn't reasonable.


Thrifted fridgies. 

Yellow 503 from Value Village, lid from Goodwill a week before. 
Verde (?) 501 from Value Village, someone had dumped it at the checkout - thanks! 


Butterfly Gold.
