Yah, it's more Pyrex- try to act surprised!

I'm such a Vintage Thingie Thursday slacker. I need to amass collections of awesome things to show you people every week, but since I am in a one bedroom European sized apartment (people living in refrigerator boxes under the freeway overpasses have more room than me) I need to keep it reasonable. I have found quite a lot of Arcopal (French Pyrexy things) and a few JAJ pieces but I decided to only buy the ones I really really love and leave the others for someone else.

After I posted my last VTT lamenting the fact that I needed to find more casserole size dishes, I managed to find about four the next week! Sticking to my "Do I really love this?" creedo, I only brought two home.

New Oval Casserole

This is the oval casserole dish from the Fiesta series, manufactured in the late 60s.

Picture 2328

The pattern name on this one is Kent and it's a rectangular casserole.

Check out more Vintage Thingie Thursday fun @ Coloradolady!

I have tried a roast in the crock pot but only on work days, where it ended up staying in too long, I think! I must try it again. One of my dilemmas with a roast is... what kind of meat do I buy?

Pyrex is really ageless, dated only by the motifs, the quality doesn't seem to change it's always reliable. I have one bowl still from my Mum.
Happy VTT

Thanks for stopping by the vintage pyrex is great, and those ham a cheese pastries look like something that I am going to have to try.

Nice dishes! I have an earlier version - not as cute as these, nor as endearing!

Bea said...

I love those casseroles. I've never seen those patterns before. You chose the right ones, I'd say.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I love Pyrex and how fun to find some vintage stuff.

Have a great weekend!!

I love Pyrex too. It is really a good median to cook with. Cast Iron is my number one choice for cooking and baking, and then it would be Pyrex.

I love your vintage finds, I don't have any vintage, all I find at DI are present and near present patterns or plain. But that is fine too. I have to be careful and just oooohh and aaaahh when I see a piece because I already have way tooooooooo muuuuuuuuuch stuff in my kitchen and house!!

Have a great day and try not to be tooooooo excited about next week. It is next week isn't it?

I hope the weather is great for you and your plans!!

Thanks for sharing with me.
