Top o' the morning to you!

Happy St-Patrick's Day everyone! Today I will share some Pyrex pieces that I really love...


This was originally a chip and dip set. It was a promotionnal item issued in 1964 and the pattern is Ivy. My Dad gave me the big bowl (444) last year. Since that day I've been on the lookout for it's companion...I found it 3 weeks ago in Etsy....
 I was enchanted by the loveliness of the pattern. It is so light and airy. Personally the pattern would've been called Shamrock instead of Ivy....but that's just me.
Of course I'm missing the rack to hold the dip bowl over the chip bowl. Those are IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND! A ton must've ended up in the trash....
 If ever you have a rack or holder that you don't want....please write! Have a delicious day!

I love that pretty pattern.
I gotta ask my mom where her old set is. It was a different pattern, but it would be fun to have!

I've never seen pyrex with those kinds of little racks before - wow. I think if I saw them in the salvation army Id pass that right by and assume it was something else! wow

You are absolutely right about the delicacy of the pattern. Love how you caught the light in your bowls.

They're perfect for St. Patrick's Day!
