My only Fire King Tulip teacup is no more. And the Cosmo (?) below it had a nice, big chunk out of it. I have several of the Cosmo, so it's not as sad to me as the Tulip, being as it was my only one.

Self, do not move breakable things around before you've had coffee. Lesson learned.

And this loverly Pyrex Friendship 473 casserole is anything but a tragedy. But the price kinda was.

It cost 18 dollars + tax. I think that's too much money, but I never see Friendship around here. Case in point, I saw this exact casserole complete with the same opal decorated lid for sale about two years ago. I scoffed at the $16.99 price tag and walked away. Next time I was there it was gone, and I haven't seen another one since.

Strangely, when it comes to Friendship, the only things I've seen enough to consider halfway common is the Cinderella bowl set. I've almost completed two sets of them, without really even meaning to. But I can't come across the regular bowl set to save my life.

Both Friendship & Horizon Blue are two really good candidates for buying online (hint hint, hubbie :-)

Happy Thrifting!


  1. Oh my, so sorry about your breakage. I collect Friendship, have all the casseroles in red, yellow and combo with all different lids but no bowls sets, can't even find one? I think your price was fine!

  2. Horizon Blue & Friendship are two of the patterns I collect that aren't turquoise or pink. I love them both so much but agree that they can be hard to find in person.
