Rainbow Colors

July 10, 2010

A few days ago I found another Pyrex dish at the thrift store.  And as I was trying to discover the name of the pattern I came across stacks and stacks of lovelies on flickr.  And I still don’t know the name of my dish pattern, but I sure found a lot of eye candy.  And in all the colors of the rainbow.

[ Red from Odditease ]

[red and orange from tulip girl ]

[ Orange from elizaboothy ]

[ golden yellow by frankcheez ]

[ lemon yellow by _sirkus_ ]

[ greens by odditease ]

[ green dots by seahoney ]

[ happy st. patricks day by twin72 ]

[ aquamarine by halloweve1977 ]

[ blue by srmathias / sheila ]

You can see some of my favorite pinks from Pink Week in this post.

I think I could give away all our DVD’s and have enough room to put these in their place.  It would give me much more enjoyment, it would be prettier and if I had a party I could serve the whole planet in style.  (Scott is shaking his head at this point.)  Sigh, so so pretty.

    Oh these are so nice! I love the birds in the first pic, but my favourites have to be the Aquamarine dishes! Thanks for posting these!

    I enjoy your blog – it is happy and the pretty things you make or find make me smile. In regards to the vintage pyrex pattern: I imagine you have already seen this site in your search, but just in case you haven’t: http://www.pyrexlove.com/vintage-pyrex-pattern-guide/.

    I grew up with the Aquamarine set. I made popcorn everyday after school for my younger sister and myself. We stuffed ourselves while watching “Dark Shadows” and we always used the largest bowl for our after school treat. My mother probably still has those bowls. Thanks for a nice memory!

    My husband doesn’t understand why we have about five sets of dishes. He also does not understand which meals look the best on which plates and always chooses incorrectly. Men are so silly.

    My mom has several of these bowls. I think she got them when she got married. 🙂

    Oh my gosh, we have the pyrex dishes from the top two pics back home in the house I grew up in… I moved overseas a few months ago and seeing that brought back some happy memories 🙂

    I think I will be filling my cabinets up with things like these soon. I love the retro-ness and the colors!

    I don’t know how I missed this! I love the Amish Butterprint (but you already knew that!). I am writing you an email right now with details.

    wow! these are beautiful – all of them!

    p.s. i would have added another comment to the bunch you had on the watermelon post, but instead i’ll just do it here. THANKS for that… I will definitely be trying it next time i get a melon. definitely a lot easier than what i’ve been doing!

    I recognize a lot of those bowls from my mom and grandma’s collections! Love your blog. 🙂
