vintage Pyrex nesting bowls


Yesterday as I was sitting in Mimi's Cafe ~ you might want to click the link to see what I'm talking about ~ enjoying a most delightful tea party with my granddaughter emolyn, when I looked up and realized I had never photographed my vintage Pyrex nesting bowl sets on top of my red hutch. So I excused myself and snapped a few photos.
I chose not to nest the largest bowl from each set, just too wobbly. But I love the look of them displayed up there in all their vintage glory, especially the stories behind each set.

The first set was found many years ago for a couple dollars at a yard sale. The 2nd set I recently found at a yard sale for 2 dollars. The 3rd set was the set that started my Pyrex collection ~ from Randy's Mamaw Bean upon her passing shortly before we married in 1979. And then the 4th set was a gift from my Mom several years ago, that she found at a yard sale.
And yes, those are vintage Pyrex plates inside my hutch. I have 2 sets of each color ~ red, blue, chartreuse and grey.
You can read about them and the rest of my Pyrex collection ~ HERE.
