Oh Pyrex... why do we all love it so much? Your collection of pink is just wonderful! I have one pink casserole dish... and am on the lookout for more, too.

Celestial Charms said...

Love these! The best thing about a Pyrex collection, is that you get to use them, as well as display them. Have a wonderful weekend.

Love your pinks! I have only two bowls both brown, they were a wedding gift, they are the survivors! Happy weekend to you too!

My love of Pyrex has been stymied by my husband. Like honestly, can you ever collect too much? My husband thinks so... To the rescue is my dear brother, Joe, that gifts Pyrex to me anyway.
My love of Pyrex is wrapped in all the memories each piece brings.
Thank you for kick starting my day.
xxooo

now this is fabulous! You must show us a picture of your aqua and pink together! Being a bride of the late 60's I was given tons of pyrex. I just gave my green's and yellow away. :) Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I love your blog too. :)

I love your collection and I bet the colors combined on your pantry make you do the happy dance all the time.:) And thanks for the reminder to just be...uniquely me.

Sending love your way!

Vintage Sheet Addict said...

Yes we too are getting the Olympic Bubbles! I have just told my girls they can stop up and watch the ceremony lots of jumping up and down and excitement! Don't think my little one will last much after 10pm but you never know!
I love the pink and torquise Pyrex but never come across any :( never mind, half the fun is in the hunt! Imagine how excited I will be when I eventually find some! Have a great Olympic evening! Ada :)

Missy said...

I love the pink and turquoise pyrex but only have one piece of each. The pink one came from my aunt and I found the blue in a charity shop. I also love grey pyrex and have a little collection going of that.
Your collection is very pretty indeed!

Tangled Sweetpea said...

Oh me oh my I am in LoVe with your Pyrex! It's really hard to come by over here. Would love to own a collection of pink and turquoise Pyrex one day!

GOOD AFTERNOON dearest Koralee!

I have been downstairs in my workshop trying to fill my stores. Someone bought out all of my paper goods!!!! THANK YOU for visiting me on your way out to your parents' home! ENJOY a whole week with them my sweet. I so miss mine. PINK and AQUA pyrex? How fun is that? Every time you open your cupboards I know you smile! I have to organize mine but mine is stored with CREAMY WHITES....

Life is good. The weather I hope, is behaving on your side of the world? We are having cooler weather that is making each day such a memorable time here at home.

Well my dearest, enjoy your holiday and big hugs to you! Anita

Lynne said...

Love your Pyrex collection! I/we will be glued to the telly as well!

It's me said...

Jennifer Beaudet said...

I love your pyrex collection! So much happiness over here! I'm going to be watching the Olympics too! I'm so excited for them! Have fun and have a great weekend Koralee!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Koralee,

How very pretty your pink pyrex is and alongside the turquoise must make you smile every time you see the collection.

Enjoy the Olympics, dear friend and have a happy weekend
Hugs

Laura Marcella said...

Your dishes look delightful! They're so pretty. I have various colors (orange, yellow, red, blue and green) of Fiestaware and zebra-striped dishware, too. It puts a smile on my face when I open my cabinets to see happy colors against animal print wildness!

I have Olympic fever, too!!! I love watching the Games, especially gymnastics. It's my favorite sport and it doesn't get enough coverage year-round in the USA :( So I love it that it always gets lots of attention at the Olympics!

When you're watching swimming, keep an eye out for Kara Lynn Joyce of the U.S. She's my second cousin, and she's swimming in her third Games (the 50m freestyle)! She already has four Olympic silver medals from Athens and Beijing. :)

Have a fabulous weekend, Koralee!

Marilyn said...

Olympic fever will hit here shortly too. Love the picture in my mind of pink and turquoise heaven. I have some turquoise I received new for a wedding gift. I was so surprised when they became collectible. Your pink is beautiful and now I can understand.

wendy said...

I had a whole set of the pyrex with the birds on it.
Man...back in the 70's when I was first married , I can't even begin to tell you how much PYREX I was given for wedding presents.
so funny
NOW...it is worth a LOT !!!

Gloria said...

Those photos are very heavenly! I don't have any pink or turquoise pyrex...:/ I have some old Spice O' Life pyrex. They were wedding gifts. I guess I haven't felt the need to upgrade (or upgrade to a different color anyway). Yours are SOOOOOO sweet! Pure joy viewing them. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the telly this weekend!!! :)

xoxo...Gloria

NanaDiana said...

Koralee, Would you believe I have never seen PINK Pyrex? I have seen all the other colors but not the pink. What a beautiful collection you have- I just love it- xo Diana

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

GOT IT! I just caught a puff of love coming my way, from Canada! You darling friend, you.....ARE YOU HAVING FUN chez your parents????
Your wishes for a magical day have blessed us so my dearest; last night it all began with poetry reading at night, a chapter from Wind in the Willows and a night walk in our gardens with the glow of a lantern hanging from our tree (battery candle for safety...shhhhh!)! Tonight, we are doing the same thing because summer is the perfect time to make the magic!

Have fun my sweet....Anita

Tracey Ayton Photography said...

Oh such pretty pyrex!!!! I have it in ..... wait for it ...... wait for it ........ yellow and red. How boring, why couldn't my grandma go for the pretty stuff? Regardless, I've got some of her's and its special no matter what color. I like the pink best :-)

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
You make me smile with your joy over dishes and Pyrex because those things are on my smile list too! Your first photo collage with the little crocheted heart is just so pretty!
Koralee, are you already visiting your parents? I hope you are having a wonderful time with them! This time goes by too quickly - but we are blessed to have such precious time together. My father will be 88 this September ... Amazing!
Enjoy every moment with them, dear one...
God bless you always,
- Maria
Ps. Thank you for such encouraging words on my last post. The words of kindness and support everyone left will carry me!
God is so Good!

Wow! Look at all these comments! we blogging girls sure do love our pyrex! Happy collecting!

Sam I Am...... said...

Too funny to see the stuff I got as a young bride are now "vintage collectibles". I'm vintage too but not too collectible anymore...I have too many flaws. Those dishes are in better shape! LOL!
I've never seen the pink before. I love that color. One of my fav color combos is red and turquoise. How pretty they are!

Bonnie Hitchcock said...

I have never seen pink so pretty! I don't know that I've ever seen some of these pieces! Thanks so much for sharing. I found you while visiting another friend in blogland. I am your newest follower. I know you have followers in abundance, but I'd love for you to follow me. I have much to learn. Thank you. Bonnie
