|We had this set when I was a kid!|
Well, this product of the 80s wants a kitchen full of them. Right. Now. Oh how I wish I had staked claim to my mother's and grandmother's old sets. I crave colorful, unique bakeware, bowls and utensils; some vintage Pyrex would fit right in. What if, say, a set of colorful Pyrex nesting bowls found its way into my house? I'd go "Williams and Sonoma who?" and throw my melamine set right out the window. Oh, Pyrex, my heart beats only for you. I'm sorry I ever let my love for you go astray.
I didn't spring for a set at the antique show because they definitely came with premium price tags. They are commonly found at thrift stores and yard sales, so I'm just going to have to be dedicated and keep my eyes out for them from now on. And the eyes of everyone who sends me birthday, Christmas, and Easter presents. I may start celebrating Hanukkah, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa and Yom Kippur if it will help in my mission.
In the meantime, I've arranged for a sexy Pyrex fashion show. Just try not to get hot and bothered.
|This collection belongs to a Martha Stewart staffer. She requested vintage Pyrex in her wedding registry. What.|
|A little eye candy, anyone?|
|Oh yes they did. That is a living room decorated with Pyrex. Whoa Nelly.|

I tend to be a nostalgic person. Perhaps it is the result of a roller coaster childhood, but I tend to gravitate toward things that bring back happy memories. Vintage Pyrex does that for me. I think of casseroles and Christmas dinners and family gatherings. That, and I like kitschy things. It may be as simple as that. But I doubt it. I like to think I am a more complex person than that. Otherwise I'd have a Hello Kitty bedroom and wear a Snork t-shirt to class every day.
So if you have some laying around your house that you don't use or want, I'll pay the shipping! And I will sing your praises! If you need to find me, I will be at our local Sally Arms.
