As you probably know (based on this website’s headline above), I fancy food and vintage things. I fancy them a lot. So, it’s probably not a surprise that I love vintage cookware. Recently, I’ve been a little obsessed with vintage pyrex kitchen glasswares. Not only are they all just adorable, they’re known for their lasting durability.
Aren’t these just amazing?
This is my vintage pyrex cabinet:
Am I lucky or what? Try not to be too jealous please. I’d like to keep our friendship.
Okay, I lied. I do not have a cabinet full of these adorable vintage pyrex pieces hoarded away. I don’t even own one vintage pyrex piece (my mom does though! Does that count??). Sigh. I know. I’m such an imposter. And liar. But, a girl can dream, right?
And, can you blame me??? They’re just soo cute! Just look:
Okay, I’m a little excited here.
This only means I need to start my own collection. ASAP.
I found a great book recently on everything you would want to know about pyrex, and more: Pyrex: The Unauthorized Collector’s Guide
It’s currently in my Amazon wishlist. I think I’ll get it when I actually get a few pyrex pieces. :)
My recent obsession with vintage pyrex started when I stumbled upon www.pyrexlove.com, which is a great website on vintage pyrex. It has a lot of helpful information about vintage pryex – from how to care for your pyrex to the different collections that are out there. They also sell vintage pyrex, which is pretty cool for those lazy people (and by lazy people, I mean me) who don’t go antiquing.
Maybe I’ll stop by a Goodwill or flea market this weekend …
