my true pyrex colours coming through loud and clear.....





why does pyrex make out hearts go 
pitter patter?

you all asked to see more of my collection
so this time I thought I would show you
a wee lookie loo 
at my turquoises and pinks together 
as they sit on my pantry shelf

Happy New Week to you all
{come back on Wednesday ...my sweet little giveaway will be starting}

Hi Koralee,
Such a awe inspiring collection. Love the look and feel of pyrex, plus the sentiment that attaches itself to my memories. Thanks for sharing these.

My favorites in my collection are the aqua & pink pyrex, too, but I love a lot of the other colors so I don't pass them by if the price is right. Since I usually only get to thrift stores I rarely see pink...the last one I saw was a bowl for $15 and I sadly had to pass on that price, but I remember the pinks I bought at an antique store once that were pricey and unfortunately I broke one washing it. The love of pyrex for me started with seeing a big yellow bowl years ago that I had to have since it was just like the one of my childhood when we had family reunions and my mom made the potato salad in it. Back then we didn't have plastic containers so that big bowl went with us covered with tin foil. Who knew there would be such huge pyrex fans? :)

Oh Koralee, this is a darling collection. Several of my blog friends are showing their Pyrex collections, something I had not thought of (collecting it).

Isobel said...

Your collection is just fab!!!

Sherri B. said...

I am in awe of your collection. I guess it is a bit of Pyrex envy, if truth be told and they are in such good shape too...Sigh.. xo

Ruby Jean said...

Your Pyrex looks a lot like my Pyrex collection. I have the hardest time passing up any Pink and Turquoise pieces. I do however think you have a couple more pieces than I, so that will be incentive enough to make sure I don't pass the next one I see up... :) Have a LOVELY day!!

I think it is official, I will always think of you whenever I see Pyrex.

I linked you on my blog today...it's at the end of my post by the strawberry banana bread photo. I finally made some and it was delicious! Mine did not turn out half as pretty as yours though. :)

wendy said...

wow. You have quite a collection there. I can't believe the COST of what they ask for this pyrex at antique stores.
I was given a ton of it when I was first married in 1972.
Got rid of it all.....and of course, like all things, it is making a comeback.

Gina ♥ said...

Oh my goodness me, I'm in love! It's all beautiful and I'm very very jealous!

So, so pretty!! :)

Marilyn said...

I guess I am too old to go pitter patter for pryex, though I like using what I have. Wish I had a pantry to show case all the pretties. Love seeing your collection.

Julie Roberts said...

Pretty sure you mean Pyrex.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

KORALEE!!! OOOOO YOU REALLY KNOW HOW TO PICK 'EM!!! This is a winning combination of colours my sweet friend and now you have me thinking about all my bowls....hmmmmm....you are capable of making us go into our cupboards and WORK without knowing we are working to organize, but rather to create ART! SOOOO PRETTY!

Thank you precious one for coming to leave me a message that you will be gone. TEN LOVELY DAYS on holiday with your family? LOVE IT! You will have a splendid time. I am now back to "work" in my studio and I am loving it. Every day is a holiday around here in Minnesota where I am constantly stumbling across new lakes with magical homes and new shops, finding something beautiful.

BIGGEST HUGS TO YOU MY SWEET BEAUTY! Anita

Blessed Serendipity said...

Lisbet / *LLL og Co.* said...

Looks awesome!
Don't remember seeing any coloured Pyrex here in Denmark. Only white Pyrex bowls w/patterns of fruits/veggies etc..
Love the coloured ones. The turquoise and pink/coral is really pretty! Would fit my kitchen perfectly.

Hello Deary!

Hope you're well. It's been far too long since I've been here!

As always, it's lovely to stop by and I'm completely smitten by your darling pyrex collection! The pinks and blues together and truly a sight to behold!

Madelief said...

Hi Koralee,

I didn't know you were a collector of Pyrex! I will keep my eyes open from now on. What a pretty collection you have. Never seen those pastel coloured ones in Holland.

How is the planning for your trip to Holland going?

Happy day!

Madelief xox

GardenofDaisies said...

Those colors do look great together. I have a couple of blue pyrex mixing bowls like yours, but all of my casseroles are corningware. A couple of years ago I found some wonderful blue pyrex snowflake casseroles. But I was out in Washington visiting family and my little sister loved them, and I ended up giving them to her. It would have been difficult to carry them home on the airplane anyway.

Annie @ knitsofacto said...

Oh wow! That is some collection. I now have a severe case of Pyrex envy!

Roselie said...

That's quite a collection! I love the blue ones the most...:)

Monica said...

Your collection is so cute. I just came across some turquoise pyrex recently and thought of you. I hope your week is going well :)

LinenandRoses said...

What a gorgeous collection.Love all the pink pieces best. Thanks for your comment on my blog. It's always lovely to find a new lovely blog like yours. Fiona x

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

Well of course your pantry is all pretty in pinks and blues...why doesn't this surprise me? I think pyrex reminds me a bit too much of being a very poor young married college student who could only make casseroles that included cream of mushroom soup!

Fifi Flowers said...

LOVE that pyrex!

Melissah said...

What an amazing collection you have!
