Retro Tuesday: Merry Pyrex Xmas!!!

I have been sitting on this one for a couple of weeks now, and I wanted to save it for Xmas....But I can't help myself! Every Tuesday I think about it and today I couldn't stop myself!!!

When I got my vintage mags, my first thought was Pyrex ads! I felt cheated, none of the mags had some....Until the last one a good old canadian Chatelaine December 1958!

I just couldn't believe that the only mag with a Pyrex ad came from my own backyard!

Here it is! All a girl wants for Xmas....


Actually I feel the prices are pretty steep for 1958. Let's compare: I got get a bottle of french perfume for 5.00$ and the blue bowl at the bottom is 7.50$. A year subscription to Chatelaine was 1.50$....And the cheapest dish on thie page is the Barbed wire one right bottom...Makes you go...uh?
 I just wished my scanner could scan the whole thing.....No I don't have all of them! I have the blue bowl minus lid and rack and the barbed wire one all dressed. I wouldn't mind the pink one if you know what I mean.....

Hungry for more? Head out to Crazy Suburban Mom's blog right HERE  for some more Retro Tuesday FUN!!!

OH.MY.MY.MY.MY.MY..... I've yet to see one of those ads and I think you posted two of them... damn, girl. Fabulous! Simply fabulous... Id much rather have that than french perfume anyway. Who cares what you smell like.

Well, okay I care but ya know...
