It's a vintage pyrex dish in the Snowflake pattern, probably made in the late 50s. I bought it for $2 from the Salvation Army years ago because I thought it was cute and is the perfect size for me. If I'm going to do this cooking thing, I want to do it with pretty dishes. My search for more has led me to an obsession that is probably equal to my obsession for yarn. I found a couple more vintage pyrex dishes from a vendor at a local flea market:
My GOSH, how pretty! I did more research on vintage pyrex and saw that there were even more patterns to love. I decided that those dishes needed some company:
This is from weeks and weeks of stalking thrift and antique stores. I like buying from these places instead of etsy and ebay because prices can be super expensive.
My search for coveted pieces has resulted in knowing the location of all the Goodwill stores within a 30 mile radius of my home. The thrill of the hunt is what keeps me searching. I love any pink piece and anything with the red and orange friendship pattern.
Honey, I have even more than what's shown in the pictures. I'm too ashamed to show you more, lest you think I have a bit of a problem. I've toned it down a bit, though. I think I'm going to complete the bowl sets that I have then stop collecting. Unless, of course, you all want to send me more. How could I say "No"?
"Thrifting" for pyrex has also allowed me to find treasures to feed my yarn obsession. Why, the other day I came across 10 skeins of cascade 220 for a mere 8 dollars.
A couple of days before that, I found 15 skeins of Creme Brulee (merino wool, originally $6.10/skein) for $4 TOTAL.
I found out when I got the yarn home that the Creme Brulee is discontinued. Who cares? Discontinued yarn can still become a sweater.
