It Must Be Called Friendship For a Reason

Several of us at work have started "hunting" for Pyrex.
Not sure how it started but the our work group seems to of caught the bug.
Look what my friend brought to work for me!
A set of 3 Friendship casseroles with the lids.
She paid a whopping $12 for all 3 in great shape.
Can you just imagine the smile on my face!
I could not wait to unwrap them and see them all together.
The lady she got them off of sold them cheap, "the red doesn't sell well"
Are you kidding me??
Now I am trying to remember what the ones at 1515 that I got at the auction look like.

Those are yellow and white with clear lids.
No repeats here!

The ones my friend found have the white lids and the red casserole.

Seems Friendship is such a good name for them, since my friend found them for me
and was so excited. She did not want me to pay her....I was worried how much they were?
She got the entire set for $12!
And that was not all....
to you remember my square bowl set that I found and used on Cinco De Mayo for cousins?
Pyrex put to use!

Well she found another one like it with the lid
I am a pretty happy friend...this was $12 also.

Who knew friendships would grow stronger over Pyrex.
So now we are always buying for each other.
I kind of think it is our way of making each other happy.
After all isn't that what friendship is all about..........

Pyrex is definitely getting popular again. I see it around antique mall, but it is rather pricey.
