The only Pyrex that I owned a little over a year ago was a set of Autumn Wheat Cinderella bowls that was a wedding gift in 1984 and a couple other clear baking dishes and pie plates. Now after many estate sales, thrift and antique stores, well let's just say, there is a lot of beautiful Pyrex out there!
My first Pyrex (wedding gift in 1984)
When my daughter, daughter-in-law, and I started hitting up the estate and garages sales last summer, the first estate sale we stopped by had all three of us hooked. Both the girls picked up a Town and Country Cinderella Bake and Serve Casserole dish and I was thrilled to find a Pink Daisy Cinderella Casserole with stand for $25! Even though I felt $25 was high, it was my first find so I had to take it home with me!
My first Pyrex as a collector
To think that these pieces have sat in someone's kitchen cabinet for so many years and used to serve many a meal and survived is fascinating to me. I would like to believe that these dishes come from a time when life was simpler and when families still gathered around the table in the evening to discuss the days events and what tomorrow held. A time I truly appreciate and try to duplicate in my own home.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my first post! Happy Pyrexing!
Have a great day,
