Pink Pyrex Karma!


Normally finding vintage things I love is difficult.

It almost always involves a lot of driving (which had been an issue recently). Even when I was going all over the place every week-end there was a lot of hit and miss.

People advertising estate sales that were really garage sales. And garage sales that were really more like garbage sales.

So when my absolute favorite find ever showed up on my door-step, it was shocking!

Well, okay not my door-step... A few feet farther...

That's right. My favorite 'find' ever wasn't a find... It came wrapped up and delivered to me...

With a card!

I couldn't believe my good fortune. Ginger and I danced all over the living room. I was dancing over my find, Ginger danced because she thought she was getting a Snausage.

I'd never been able to find one of these. Not ever, ever, ever.

And she sent it to me because she wanted me to have it, because I couldn't find any pink pyrex!

And she knew that because I told her every single time she posted finding some.

Actually, I think what I said was "Now, I know why there is no pink Pyrex in the United States! You are sucking it all up to Canada with your incredible pink Pyrex karma. (Although she's now added Delphite Blue Pyrex Karma too... )

Go visit Vonlipi although you will be crazy jealous like me...
Or go to her etsy shop because she parts with some of this stuff
before she changes her mind and keeps it all!

What a lovely thing for someone to do. There are still a few good people left. That is a neat dish. I have seen all colors, but not the pink.

I love old Pyrex. I'm glad you got your favorite color.

I've used pyrex before, but don't have any favorite colors, but I do believe in positive thinking and it looks like it worked for you, very nice gift.

I don't think I've ever seen the Pink Pyrex. Or maybe I just didn't see it because I wasn't looking for it. I hope to see it all over now. It's beautiful. Thank you for visiting junkblossoms! I hope you come back often. Remember to say hi when you do. Happy Holidays or rather Merry Christmas!

Coloradolady 12/3/09, 9:36 PM  

Very pretty, I never see pink around here, I love the shape of this...lucky girl! Happy VTT and have a great weekend.

Lin 12/3/09, 10:14 PM  

Oh, Tracy, that is lovely. Glad you found it. Did you at least give Ginger a Snausage out of that bad boy?

Debbie 12/3/09, 11:31 PM  

What a sweet piece of pyrex. I have NEVER seen pink. Hope you gave Ginger a snausage to help you celebrate.
