Pyrex and tornados

A number of scary tornadoes went through Oklahoma last night, thankfully we just had wind and rain at our home.
Bobby and Bridgette live where one of the big ones got its start and they have plenty of broken trees to clean up and they lost power for awhile- but no big damage and they are safe.



on to more fun things - like Pyrex.

I did not intend to start a Pyrex collection. I got my big brown and white bowl from my grandparents. Then I added a few pieces from yard sales and Jimmy found a few more pieces at thrift stores. I like using Pyrex so much, that I started hunting it out when we shop.
Yesterday, I decided my Pyrex, and a few pieces of FireKing that look like Pyrex, needed their own cabinet. So I rearranged and ended up with this, minus the few pieces that were in the dishwasher or fridge.

the big aqua bowl on the bottom shelf is my newest Pyrex, it is a Mothers Day gift from Jimmy.

and just so you don't think I have lost my marbles and am wasting too much space on silly dishes that I really do use everyday, Pyrex collecting is popular- here is a Flickr picture of just one of many big-time Pyrex collections.

These pieces all belong to Gracie

I sure hope her shelves are very secure and strong.

  1. You have some nice pyrex and Fire Kings pieces. I wish I had kept what I have had over the years. I think I will begin looking for them again.

  3. So glad you and your family are safe after the storms and tornadoes last night. Somehow they missed us too. We only got some heavy duty rain and some wind for a short period of time. I feel truly blessed this morning.

    Pyrex is just the best. I have a few pieces myself.

  4. I discovered that there is a big demand for pyrex and fire king while trying to find out what sells on Ebay. I never knew it was worth anything until recently. I love all yours and they look nice in the cabinet. :o)

  5. What a pretty collection you have. I am very fond of Pyrex too, they are so durable and last forever. Plus, I love all the kinds of sizes that are out there. You can use them for just about anything food-wise.

  6. Holy bejezus! Oh My! I don't think I have ever seen a collection like Gracie's all though yours is fabulous.

    My Grandmother, Mother and Aunt all used Pyrex with a passion and I some how missed that recessive gene. Then one day I found a set of turquoise and white Amish Couple bowls...all four without blemish for four dollars. I have been using them ever since and can't imagine not having them in my cupboard.

    I miss reading your blog. I can't wait until this wedding is over so I can get back to vistin'.

  7. Oh...PS: I want you to know you were in our thoughts and prayers when Fly Guy called to tell me about the twisters in Oklahoma.

    Glad to know you and your loved ones are safe.

    Hugs from Arizona
