I Made Bread!

Just dropping by to share this bread recipe. ‘Cos who doesn’t love a good old #pyrexinaction perv every once in a while! Ok, just me then! Its a no-knead bread made in Pyrex. And its another reason for all us Pyrex hoarders to justify our numerous mixing bowls!!! Plus the bread is really tasty, so…

New Old Stuff

Since we moved I have hardly bought any vintage. I have been very good and even left Pyrex behind! I am trying to operate a “one in one out” policy with any new bits. Because I like all my current stuff, I am not rushing to replace it any time soon. However there is alway…

Pyrex Stuff That Is Not Pyrex

I want to share a few Pyrex bits and bobs that I have accumulated over the years. First up is this old American magazine advert that I bought cheap off Ebay, which I have framed (badly), and displayed in the kitchen. I love it because Pyrex really is a joy for “fixing, mixing, cooking, serving…

Up To The Table!

I have a new mid century obsession! And much like my interest in Aussie MCM, its one that requires a little bit of effort on my part to research it…. ….And by effort, I mean that I need to do a bit more Googling than usual as there is no Wikipedia page on the subject…

Mid Century Down Under

If you have read this blog before you will know that I am a huge mid century modern fan. And indeed, it seems that everybody and their dog is also a MCM fan these days! I mean, what’s not to like with the clean lines, the elegant style and the post war optimism of the…

Two Family Heirloom Vintage Cookbooks

Recently, my Mum had a clear out and gave me two of her cook books. One was her copy of the famous cookbook that every young housewife owned back in the late 1970’s/early 1980’s – The Dairy Book of Home Cookery and the second book was one that used to belong to my Nan’s sister…

Take a Chance On Me

Some new vintage glass has entered my life recently, and for once its not Pyrex! The stars aligned when I spotted this Chance handkerchief vase in the window of a local charity shop. It was just a shame that the shop was shut at the time! So I sent my Mother in to buy it…

I Might Have a Problem…

I need to join a support group for Pyrex lovers, something like Pyrex Hoarders Anonymous if such a thing exists. I need to stand up in front of the group and announce to them that “my name is Helen and I have a Cinderella problem” and then the group would immediately know that its not…

At Last, A Complete Set Of Pyrex!

I find the simplest type of blog posts like “here’s some new to me Pyrex, now look at the pretty pictures” are the hardest for me to write. I find it much easier to ramble on about random crap incoherently (as demonstrated in my previous post), than edit myself, keeping things short and sweet and to the point!…
