|This is the entire group of American-made Pink Gooseberry Pyrex. * aaaahhhhhh....Muppet dance*|
The smallest two (501) refrigerator dishes were among my very first pieces of Pyrex, and my first pieces of pink. I've built this collection up over the last 3 years, but stalled on finding the largest refrigerator dish - the very last one I needed.
Finally I gave in and bought it online. Story of my life. And of course I'm trying to buy high demand pieces at a time when prices are climbing to all-new highs (the fact that it's tax refund time probably isn't helping, either).
But nothing, I repeat, nothing compares to pretty pink Pyrex, and a job well done. Now I can rest on my laurels, knowing that I have saved a sweet grandmothers Pyrex from falling into the well of obscurity.
Or something like that. Haha, I get downright imaginative when it comes to finding
The towel in front was purchased at TJ Maxx and I just HAD TO have it. It features the lovely Cathrineholm (the pink leaf mixing bowl, bottom left) ((OH TO have that actual bowl in real life!!!!!*swoon*)) as well as the lovely green leaf teacup and saucer, bottom right - "Bersa" pattern by the maker, Gustavsberg, designed by the iconic Stig Lindberg.
This little tea towel is likely as close as I will get to either one of these dreamy (and pricey!) pieces.
And my apologies to any commentors, I've had to add a captcha to my blog comments due to a sudden influx of spam comments. I hate to do it - they are annoyingly difficult to read sometimes. If it doesn't help cut down the spam-bots, I'll take the captcha off and just continue manually deleting the fake comments.
Hope this doesn't deter any REAL people from leaving lovely comments! :-)
Hope you are finding thrifty treats & treasures!
