Thanksgiving is only a few days away so I thought I'd share these Pyrex holiday recipes from their 1955 ad campaign in Better Homes & Gardens. I often associate Pyrex with the holidays because I can distinctly remember my mother's kitchen being full of Pyrex bowls and cookware during Thanksgiving and throughout Christmas. The 1955 Pyrex Thanksgiving Menu: - Fresh Fruit Cup - Roast Turkey - Celery Stuffing - Baked Broccoli - Bacon & Sweet Potatoes - Pecan Pie - Cranberry Sauce - Coffee
Recipes, ideas and baking suggestions are all included in the Pyrex ad above. Just click on the image to see the full-size version.
Vintage Pyrex glassware is very popular and extremely collectible now due to it's longevity, smart design and bright colors. If you'd like to learn more about vintage Pyrex I highly recommend visiting the Pyrex Love site where you'll find helpful pattern references and an FAQ. Pyrex Love is also responsible for the wonderful Pyrex Love Flickr Group where Pyrex owners share pictures of their colorful Pyrex collections.

Welcome to Mid-Century Living! My name is Kimberly and I'm a longtime admirer of mid-century design. My husband and I recently bought our first home and it's a beautiful old custom built 1954 atomic ranch house in Napa, CA. I plan to share my adventures in home restoration and remodeling as well as various decorating tips, gardening and landscaping ideas, recipes and anything else that falls under the banner of "Mid-Century" or "Living." I'll also be writing about local issues and various things that interest me as a new home owner. I hope you'll enjoy your stop here!
