Curb My Enthusiasm

Well you knew you couldn't get away for much longer without a Pyrex post! Bear with me, its only my second of the year!

What's happened? Well, I've had to curb my habit a wee bit, it's very tempting to buy so much of it when it's in great condition, so useful and so cheap! But my poor cupboards were groaning under the weight of it all so I'm now only buying pieces I am ABSOLUTELY in love with!

Here are my latest finds...

My first ever piece complete with its cradle! Now you know I'm more of a blue girl rather than pink, but I have the exact same dish in turquoise so I'm going to swap them over :-)


This piece is darker than most of my others, but there's something about it I love. I've never seen this design before, any Pyrex experts out there know anything about it?


A cute bowl with blue swirls, I already have the same design with red swirls :-)


A couple of fluted pie dishes to add to my tiny collection.


I'm still kicking myself for not buying a lovely purple pie dish I saw in Vinnie's a couple of months ago just because there was a big queue and I was dashing to catch the bus.

The bus was late :-(

Swooooon! I have a link for you regarding your mystery piece- it's called "Midnight Bloom" by the peeps over at Pyrex Love. Their site is VERY handy :)

Thank you so much Jennie!!! I read the article, probably for the best they think this was the only piece made in this design, otherwise I might become obsessed with finding more sizes :-)

Oh! Darn that bus! I still have a Blue Horizon casserole dish in my kicking myself memory. It would have matched my bowls, it was gone when I went back for it. I have never seen that darker dish either, love it.

Great finds! I love seeing all the Australian Pyrex that we do not often see here. JAJ yes, Agee no. Are they marked Agee (I think that I have got the name right?) or Pyrex?

Hi Jenifir, the orange pie dishes are marked Crown, the green and white ones are marked Agee pyrex, the blue and white bowl and black and blue casserole are both Pyrex USA and the casserole with cradle is Agee Pyrex (made in Australia) :-)

I love the first pink piece with the cradle. I've not quite understood the cradle myself, but the design is gorgeous...

I'm in love with all of your pyrex! Such beautiful pieces. The first piece in the cradle is my favorite, I'm so envious!
