Vintage Pyrex Mixing Bowls

Lookie what I finally got! My Pyrex mixing bowls are here! Aren't they gorge?

I can't decide if I'll actually use them or not, but for now, I am merely satisfied looking at them...

...I'll probably use them though... Janis Joplin says, "If you got it today, you don't wear it tomorrow, man."

That's one of my favorite song lines, quotes, whatever...I interpret it as - Life is too short to save the best things for later, when tomorrow may never come. I guess that's kinda depressing, but perhaps a better way of phrasing it is that you should live each day to the fullest! Yea...that sounds better. Anywho, that may or may not have been what Janis meant with her song (or live rant during a song), but I like my interpreted message, so I'll stick with it.

Wear your favorite outfit today...use your best china for every day meals...break open that bottle of wine you've been saving...whatever. Life is too short to not celebrate the everyday. :)

Great post! I love that line and all that it says. So true.

The bowls are gorgeous. I might need to get me some tho they'd have to be pink! :)

Cheers! LA

The mixing bowls are lovely -- for what it's worth, I would use them --It took me until 11 years after I got married to finally get out my Lenox bone china I registered for -- kept waiting for that special occasion. I now proudly use them, they make simplest dinners nicer. I think your cake plates are really nice too. What a find! Antique shopping is so fun. Love your web site.

I saw a lot of these on Ebay today - some in bright shades and some in muted. Very nice find!

Hey TC, glad you found some good use for those bowls! I'm sure they're lovely! Thanks for the compliment on the cake plate and my site! :)

Thanks Colleen! I like your yellow one you found! I probably paid too much for mine too...oh well!

I use my vintage pink pyrex gooseberry set all the time. I have quite a bit of it and I love it! I just picked up some custard cups this past weekend and I cannot wait to use them!

Hey Jilly,

I thought about getting some Gooseberry bowls, myself! Lucky you! Especially since you found some custard cups! Did you take a picture of them for your blog?
