Frost Garland and Pink Gooseberry - Pyrex Love

We were lucky to come across both of these at one thrift store the other day for a great price. The larger dish is a promotional 1.5 quart #023 round bottom casserole that is listed in our ref as “Frost Garland” (the name was one we had made up for now to identify it). It originally came with a glass domed lid and a wire candle warmer cradle. The frosted branch is just what we needed to cool down in this hot weather - it was in the 100s again today in L.A.

The small Pink Gooseberry Refrigerator Dish was a great find for a couple dollars - the couple of times I’ve seen one at the thrifts they’ve either been dishwashed or badly damaged. Plus, we got a lid to go with it. These #501 size Pyrex dishes are endlessly useful around the kitchen.

    I love the pyrex of course, especially the Frost Garland, but I really love your polka-dot glasses in the background!

    Wow that “Frost Garland” is terrific, and totally new to me. Love it! I have a thing for pink Gooseberry. Great finds :D

    I also have a thing for pink Gooseberry…I am constantly looking for it. Yesterday, I found a lovely casserole in an “unknown” pattern…now I am dying to know what it is called!

    adrienne: the dotty glasses in the background are from Crate & Barrel sometime last summer. They were on sale for 99c each and I’m not one to resist dots & a good deal :)

    Heather: are you in our Flickr group? If you can share a photo with the group we will try to help identify it!

    Thanks so much Jennifer, Wendy, & Leah!

    Such memories! I’m sure my grandmother had the pink gooseberry in her little red cottage where I spent many summer afternoons! We would make egg salad sandwiches (hence the pyrex memory jog) and then go on a trip to the post office. Such nice memories…
