How it all began...

I'm new at this, so bare with me.

I don't know what's going to come of this blog. Hopefully lots of pyrex. and other cool stuff too.
I fell in love with Pyrex at the beginning of this summer.
It all started with this...

A 3 bowl set of the Butterfly Gold 1 pattern in pristine condition. I found it at a yard sale, and it was only $5!!!
Then, just the next day I was in the Salvation Army in Lindsay, which just happens to be one of my favourite thrifting locations and found this fantastic Butterfly Gold 2 pattern casserole dish with a lid! for only $8!! I don't know if this is the original lid, but it does have a Pyrex marking on it, and it fits so... good enough for me!

After only a month and a half, this is what my collection looked like...

The Butterfly Gold butter dish was from my mother, she didn't want it. (WHAT?!)
The Gooseberry Pink was $15(flinch) at an antique market, it was a bit pricey for me, but, it's a fantastic pattern and in great shape! the Blue Fridgie was $3 with a lid! at my favourite Salvation Army.
the Old Town mug was 50 cents, oh, and there's 5 more of them!!
phew... and there's so many more to see.
until next time. (probably tomorrow)
