Blue Bowls - Pyrex Love

I know that we’ve been meaning to cut down on our Pyrex intake lately, but it’s still difficult to pass up nice examples like these 401 mixing bowls. That’s especially true when they’re only a dollar a piece. Two are from the primary set, while the third is a more uncommon “Bluebelle” or Delphite Blue example. We keep a few 401s in the house at all times for use as potato chip bowls - perfect size for a serving of chips for two people while watching TV…

    I have a very used 401 bowl from the primary set. My grandmother ate her cereal or oatmeal everyday in it…..until the day she died. I keep it on top of my china cabinet as a reminder of her.

    Thanks so much for showing me this. I didn’t know that there was a name for the bowl.

    Wonderful blog!!!

    I definitely noticed the beautiful Pyrex in your picture, but I also enjoyed the picture of the yellow rotary phone! It’s in great shape - where did you find it?
