Pink Pyrex for Pink Saturday

I stopped in at a moving sale Friday morning and found the prettiest pink Pyrex  2 qt. casserole with a metal stand. I don’t know if it ever had a lid…probably not…I don’t recall ever seeing a square or rectangular lid on Pyrex dishes.

I love the design…not flowers or really any theme.

When I brought it home, hubby seemed surprisingly interested in what I had found… he thinks it would be perfect for his favorite hot artichoke dip…

I was pleased that it matches another pink find, a small Pyrex bowl…

I love my bright  Homer Laughlin Mexicana dishes and the Fiesta colored Rivera pieces I have, but lately I’ve been pulled toward the pink tones… not just in the kitchen and in the garden but also in my closet…lots more pink than I have ever worn before…I really enjoy this weekly dose so I’m off to make the rounds. Stop by Beverly’s house and pick up your invitation.

There’s sure to be a beautiful group waiting to welcome you. Have a very pink week.

Happy Pink Saturday, LaVerne.

What a great find! And, I love the bowl with the stripes.

I just saw your smiling face on Suzie's Pink Saturday post.

Good Morning! What a find with that darling PINK casserole!! I love that soft color, too. I have the PINK Pyrex nesting bowls that my mom used in her kitchen. They are full of scratches from years of use...I still use them, too, and I smile each time I do. They bring me closer to my mom.

Happy Pink Saturday! Dana

I love the pinks you've chosen to share with us today. I hope you are "in the pink" and having a wonderful day.

Oh! I love that little striped Pyrex bowl! I've never seen one like it. I collect the McCoy bowls with the pink stripe but now I'll be on the look out for some of that pink pyrex. Have a wonderful pink weekend!

I'm jealous! I love your pink pyrex and I've never seen the little stripe bowl before. We're getting more pastel in our 60's I guess. Got your upstairs room all fixed up again for you...come anytime. Love you my friend, Nancy

Happy Pink Saturday Laverne, and thank you for sharing this wonderful find. Oh I love the pyrex dish but especially that little bowl. It is just beautiful. I could have a kitchen full of pyrex. It never wears out. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit. Country hugs, Sherry

Hi LaVerne, don't you just love the patterns and dishes from way back when. They make me feel like a little girl again and so warm and secure. Brings back some great memories of times past, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Makes me think of macaroni & cheese, hot cinnamon rolls & meat pie. One of my favorite aunts had that pretty pink Pyrex, & was a fabulous cook. Nice memories...

Flea Market Finds...sounds like my whole house and yard...

Milk Glass Collection

Milk Glass Collection
Who knew that a 25 cent flea market find would unleash such a collecting frenzy? I never pay more than a dollar unless it's a really nice piece. They are great grouped with a single daisy in each.

These used to be inexpensive florist vases in the 50's and 60's. Everyone's Grandmother had bunches.

Mexicana Dishes

Mexicana Dishes
My sister found these for me at Bussy's Flea Market in San Antonio, Texas. I had seen pictures in her Fiesta reference book. Mexicana was also made by Homer Laughlin in the 30's. I had been looking for several years without ever finding even a single piece when she found the set...with a promise to hold it for us, she came running to find me and I bought the entire set...60+ pieces for $50.


I've added to the set over the years, but the price and experience will never match that first amazing find.

Vintage Kitchen Hutch

Vintage Kitchen Hutch
When my hubby found this hutch it was Pepto pink and I was not 100% sure about it. But with a new red back and fresh white paint and refurbished hardware, it became one of my favorite pieces.

Nancy made me save the vine

Nancy made me save the vine
The vine and flowers painted on the inside were in such bad shape that I was ready to remove it all. Nancy -My Crafty Little Page convinced me to keep it and after some touch-up work, I'm glad I listened to her. My husband restores vintage Cushman motorscooters and he tries to make everything "mint" condition again. The Shabby Chic movement came along just in time to keep me from making some terrible mistakes.
