It's A Pyrex Life For Me

Why yes, I did watch the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie! FYI while the plot and everything was great, seeing it in 3D was hardly worth it - the movie was literally dark most of the time, I could barely see what was happening on screen. Hmm I just realized how negative this sounds, I didn't mean it to (or is it too ?).

Moving on, I managed to pull myself (partially) out of my thrift slump. I found some exciting Pyrex pieces...
This Spring Green Butter Tub was $2.99. It has a plastic lid! At first I wasn't sure if it was for the same piece, but the lid does say, Pyrex 75-PC Corning.
It was a Spring Blossom kind of day. At a different thrift I found these two small casserole dishes. The 1.5 pint was $4 and the 1 pint was $3.20.
All together now
The pattern that started my Pyrex love - Autumn Harvest. I grew up with a set of these mixing bowels. Everything was and still is cooked using those bowls
I scored this Early American divided casserole dish for only $2! 
 Pretty kitty
I felt a bit bad leaving this Golden Acorn divided casserole dish behind, but it was $7.99 I am trying to control my spending. Not that $8 would blow my invisible budget, but I am really really trying to have some self control.
The End.

  1. Great job on the willpower....I don't think I could have left it behind! lol

  2. I hear you on the self control issue...I have been doing the same. I have an imaginary number I stick by and I say this number in my head before I loook at the price. I've had to be quite strict when the price was only a dollar more, LOL! So far, so good...!

    Great Pyrex finds!

  3. Oooh nice finds. I have the same Acorn Gold Divided Dish and can't say it's one of my favourite Pyrex pieces. Your other finds were way better deals!

  4. It seems like a lot of thrifters are finding Pyrex this season. I have the three mixing bowls that go with your green and white and have used them since the mid seventies. Love them!
    Thanks for coming to Treasure Hunt Thursday.

  5. You really found some great treasures. I don't blame you for leaving the more expensive one behind. You'll probably find it again for $1.00.
    Thanks for sharing and thanks for visiting with me.

  6. Wow, thanks for sharing your great Pyrex finds. I see a lot of it at the thrift store I go to. I have only bought one piece. Again, thanks for sharing, Karie

  7. Pretty Pyrex! I also saw a few pieces this week at the local Sal. Army that were priced WAY too high. I think they have caught on to what we are doing....ya think? :)

  8. Wow, another blogger who collects Pyrex!!
    I collect the solid coloured stuff predominatly from the 50's and 60's. I just love it.
    Great to meet a kindred!

  9. Wow, you got some great Pyrex pieces! I love the way the three stacked on top of each other look. Way to use the willpower regarding not getting that last Pyrex dish! Thank you for joining TTF and have a wonderful Memorial Weekend!
