My mom has pyrex dishes. She got them for a wedding present in 1962. Yes my parents will have been married for 50 years this year in November! I am extremely proud of that fact and of them.
This one here is just like the sets Mom has. She also has the mixing bowls. I found this one at a antique shop. They remind me of home, remind me of her. Mom has always used them. This particular size was even broken. She found a replacement at a different shop awhile ago that came with a lid. Since her lid wasn't broke (just the dish), and she didn't need two lids, she gave me the extra.
I also found this little beauty on the same trip.
She has the cutest lid!
Now, honestly, I know nothing about any of these being worth any money or any of that stuff, but I do love them. Like I said it just reminds me of home. And not to mention, they are way more fun to look at than the plain white or clear Pyrex that I got for my wedding:)
I also have a couple sets of mixing bowls that I guess I could have photographed. The primary colors set that is really popular. I got them at an auction before Slone was born. And Mom found me the brown and white set with the gold on them awhile ago. She also bought me a pink bowl that she ended up using and I'm pretty sure that I'm never going to actually get it! :)
What about you? Do you collect it? I'm not really wanting to have shelves and shelves of it. I want it for the reason it was made....to use it!
