Hooray for the first day of spring! I have really been looking forward to spring’s arrival this year. We didn’t have a lot of snow this winter, but the gray sky and bare trees make the days seem dull and dreary.
We had some snow last week along with temperatures in the teens. Hopefully the cold weather is behind us, and sunny days are just around the corner, but I’ve learned not to get my hopes up before Easter.

Hi Paula, Happy Spring! The Pyrex bowls are so sweet. What a great idea for a collection, something useful that you can enjoy right at your table. I assume that you use yours! I’ve enjoyed poking around your blog, and I am really loving that pink Royal typewriter in your last post:)
Thank you, Karen! I really enjoy collecting Pyrex. It’s useful and pretty. There are only a couple of pieces in my collection that I will not use, simply because I would have a hard time replacing them. ? Thank you for visiting!
Hello Paula: I like your pyrex photo. Question: do you collect to use it or for display? What I like most about Pyrex is that — for the most part — it doesn’t die. Drop it and it seems to bounce off the floor. When I was cleaning out my mother’s home, I wanted to keep some of the life-long patterns — they were still in excellent condition — but there was no real need or space to hold on to them. I am glad Pyrex brings you delight, the pieces I use everyday, I have been using since the early 1980s.
I use a lot of my Pyrex pieces every day. Some are what I call “work horses.” They are patterns that I’m not necessarily fond of, or they may have some cosmetic issues. I display some of my Pyrex in cabinets or on shelving around my house where I can see it and enjoy it. There are a few pieces that are hard to find or rare that I don’t use because I know that, if I break it, I won’t be able to replace it. I plan to start sharing more of my collection here on the blog soon. ?
