Madam Mix-a-Lot

It has been a while since any new (to me) Pyrex has entered my life.

There are many reasons why this is the case. Mainly because my local charity shops are rubbish, the prices are sky high on Ebay right now (to the point where I have been tempted to sell a few of my pieces for a tidy profit) and I have been on another decluttering mission.

Because of my ongoing decluttering, I always think long and hard before buying anything new. Do I need it? Will I use it? Have I got one already?

So many questions that I chose to ignore when I bought this little number below!mix it upIts another Cinderella style JAJ mixing bowl. Yes, I know I need one of these like I need a hole in the head. But when it comes to Pyrex, my weakness is the mixing bowls! They are just so nice to bake with and the pourers on the side are such a great design feature.

It cost me £4.99. Not exactly the charity shop bargain of the year, but as I have said before there is no such thing as a bargain in my local chazzas! I justified the spend by walking home instead of spending £2.70 on my bus fare. Oh yeah, and the money going to a good cause bit!

I have no idea what the name of this pattern is though, or how old it is. My guess is its from the late 60’s, early 70’s. Does anyone out there know?

*Edit 01/03/15* I have found more info on the pattern via Flickr here!
