I have been collecting Pyrex for about a year now and I have to say, it is a fun hobby but it really can turn into an obsession. The hubby and I joke that I suffer from a condition called 'Pyrexia'. I started my collection with the following plate:
I posted it to flickr and then submitted it to a group for vintage kitchen ware. I then started browsing the group and fell in love with Pyrex. I then found a couple of other groups devoted specifically to Pyrex and I was hooked.
I think this was the next piece that I got. I couldn't get a good photo of it, but I loved it and I was officially a collector.
This is probably my favorite Pyrex pattern, and I wish I had more of it. I love going to thrift stores and antique stores and searching for the pieces.
These are a couple of others that I got in the first few days of collecting. I love cooking with my Pyrex and only have a couple of pieces that I won't use. It makes cooking more fun when I can use all my colorful dishes. It is also cool knowing that some of the dishes I have in my collection have been around since the 50s and still look beautiful.
