Putting it all together...

I decided it was time to centralize my collection of old dishes. The old cabinet in the pantry was the perfect place. I even allowed the Tupperware to join in.


I think I need some of that old shelf paper with the scalloped edges. Oh, that would be perfect. Now, you have to know that this is not ALL of my collection. Hey, there was only so much room. But doesn't this bunch look pretty!

HI Bella! it's been a while but I'm out and about reconnecting with everyone. I'm really crushing on your vintage pyrex. It makes me think of my mom and all those family meals she made. I hope your day is a great one!

I am so freakin' jealous. :) Sadly, I have owned a number of these things over the years but somehow lost them along the way as I moved. Makes me wonder if any are in storage! Wouldn't that be fun?! I'm going to have to go look now.

Your collection is awesome, but I am not the least bit surprised!!! I have a collection of that very same era of tupperware!! I have all the tops too!

If you can not find the lace shelf liner...tack in some real lace on the shelf edges...it would look adorable.

Love you and miss you.

Loving the pyrex...anything looks amazing when you get it all together. I really think collections should be grouped rather than scattered - much more impact - and your cabinet illustrates that beautifully! Scalloped edge shelf paper would be adorable!

I, too, collect Pyrex. I think I love it all. I can't seem to pass it up! I wish I had open shelving to display all my favorite pieces. And I agree. Vintage shelf liner would be awesome.
I love-love-love the snowflake pattern!

I love all of your Pyrex! I collect vintage Pyrex, but only if it's a good deal. Otherwise, I don't get that "booyah!" feeling. ;) Just got a large Town & Country bowl this week for $1 at a yard sale!

Rambling Girl said...

Oh yeah it looks so cute and I am sure you had more dishes! I have been looking for old pyrex dishes also in the thrift stores...I just was bitten by your love for the treasures so I have been a hunting.

Linda said...

Your photos make everything look great! If I took a picture of my pantry it would NOT look like yours! LOL! Pretty, pretty collection.

Theresa said...

I love the way it all looks together. Makes me want to look for mine. I have some of each I think:) Have a blessed day!

Brenda said...

It does indeed look pretty. And cozy! I've been thinking all week that I'm going to have to go out and find something to put some of my growing dish collection in. That won't break the bank! Love yours!
