Hello, Dear Ones!
Do you remember when I found these little pink darlings a while back?
If you'd like to check out that post just click HERE.

Well...guess what?

I found their mother!
Oh, joyness! Oh, happiness!
The Goosberry Pink Pyrex family has been reunited. 
Well, there's no Daddy, but that's okay.

All the Gooseberries were so happy 
and they wanted to go to town working in the kitchen immediately.
Strawberries were happy to oblige!
Isn't this a sweet little ole pattern?
Nothing is making me happier at the moment than my old Pyrex Gooseberry Pink bowls.

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


 I was a fool to ever leave your side 
 Me minus you is such a lonely ride  
The breakup we had has made me lonesome and sad I realize
 I love you 'cause I want you bad, hey, hey 
 I spent the ev'ning with the radio 
Regret the moment that I let you go 
Our quarrel was such a way of learnin' so much 
I know now that I love you 'cause I need your touch, hey, hey 

 Reunited and it feels so good 
Reunited 'cause we understood  
There's one perfect fit  
And, sugar, this one is it  
We both are so excited 'cause we're reunited, hey, hey

 I sat here starin' at the same old wall  
Came back to life just when I got your call
I wished I could climb right through the telephone line 
And give you what you want so you will still be mine, hey, hey
I can't go cheatin', honey, I can't play I found it very hard to stay away 
As we reminisce on precious moments like this 
I'm glad we're back together 'cause I missed your kiss, hey, hey

Yeah, yeah, yeah Ba-a-a-by
Lover, lover, this is solid love And you're exactly what I'm dreamin' of 
All through the day And all through the night  
 I'll give you all the love I have with all my might, hey, hey
~ sung by Peaches and Herb


  1. Before I saw your post, I was singing Reunited.....oh, how I miss the 70s!!

  2. Those are so pretty, I love the design on them and had no idea they were called Gooseberries:)
    I also love the Peaches and Herb song...always a smile when I stop by!

  3. Love those Pyrex refrigerator bowls......I had a set in aqua long ago, someone else has them........been looking for another set ever since my divorce!!! They are so much better than using plastic wraps or foils, completely green and safe!!! I miss the 60's......

  4. Whoo Hoo!

    Glad news for certain! : - )

  5. Oh Shelia, if there was anything to make me not like you this would be it! YOU ARE KIDDING!!! I LOVE any pink Pyrex and here you have lucked into the cream of the crop! I salivate over those on ebay but they are always too expensive and even more so here at an antique shop here. Well, I will enjoy yours I suppose and try to fight the jealousy, lol. Gorgeous, gorgeous!!

  6. Shelia, your pink Pyrex bowls are very pretty.

  7. What could be better than PINK?? These are darling!

  8. It is so vintage and sweet. I have never seen a piece of that color anywhere except in pictures. I love it- xo Diana

  9. It's making me happy too Sheila!
    Especially beautiful with those strawberries...oh my.
    Hugs friend,

  10. These are so pretty Shelia! I've never seen that pattern or colour before but I really like it. I'm glad you found more pieces for your collection. Enjoy the weekend. Hugs.

  11. Shelia I love the Pink Gooseberry pattern so much! I am so happy you are reuniting them!! I do love my Pyrex and I have Pink Gooseberry bowls!! Thanks for joining Diann and I at TTF!

  12. Those are fabulous Shelia! Love the pink and the strawberries look wonderful in them!

  13. That is a lovely pattern and you were so lucky to find the larger one. The photos with the strawberries are so pretty and are making me crave our local strawberry season -soon!

  14. What gorgeous Pyrex! Beautiful set!

  15. Absolutely gorgeous, love that pink Pyrex!!!!!

  16. How lucky that you found another piece to your collection Shelia! Looks terrific with the strawberries too!

  17. I love your bowls, they are so pretty. I remember when pink was all the rage for the kitchen. I even had pink appliances. Hugs, Marty

  18. Ooo! I love your pink gooseberry bowls! Every time I walk into a thrift store, I hope I find some! Some day, some day! ♥

  19. You've got a great eye! I love your photos and strawberries! They accent the pink gooseberry so well. (I can't help myself, I'm a graphic artist and I enjoy the appearance of a blog as well as it's content). Thank for your sweet note about my bowl set on Pinterest.

    I also collect posts and I've reposted this one at The Blog POST OFFICE. It's my little forward & reverse link party. Drop by to view, if you backlink'll be considered for next weeks "First Class Post" winners and I place them on Pinterest too.
    Cheers, Victoria Lavender

  20. I love these bowls. So cute! I have them in a light brown background with deep blue flowers. Use them all the time!

  21. I would have such fun cooking with these! And the berries are a perfect match for it!

  22. Your bowls are gorgeous! The new one is fabulous and does not hardly even look used! Hugs, Cindy

  23. They are beautiful! I never seem to find the pink ones! I'm glad you found the mommy -- daddy is probably a blue color anyway! Serves him right to have all girls :)

  24. Your dishes are beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen pink ones before. I still have my old "harvest" (yellow gold) ones though.

  25. Shelia,
    What a great collection, dear friend!!!
    Strawberries look amazing in your pink pyrex!!!
    Love the table cover beneath them, too!!!
    Have a wonderful weekend!!!

    1. Hi Pat! I hope you come back over. I've tried and tried to comment about your patriotic post but when I go to your blog the comment area takes me to your Google place and it says "Opening" but never opens to let me comment. I just wanted you to know I've tried.
      be a sweetie,
      Shelia ;)

  26. Hi Shelia,
    That IS a cute pattern! I've never seen that one before. I have some orangy yellow colored ones with some kind of pattern on them, flowers maybe? But those gooseberries are wonderful. The red strawberries look beautiful with it.
    Have a great weekend,

  27. Your photos are just beautiful! I love the strawberries in the bowls. Wonderful way to show them off. Happy Pink Saturday!

  28. Love Pyrex. I have the white with the pink design.

    My fave are some aqua refrigerator dishes with their little lids.

  29. Hi Shelia, that's a beautiful pyrex. The design is so sweet and cute.
    My favorite song 'Reunited', I never get tired listen to this song. :)

    Have a nice weekend.

  30. What a great feeling of accomplishment it is to complete a set! I have been loving your Pyrex pins of Pinterest too!

  31. What a pretty pink happy family!!


  32. It's funny how we had these in Mom's kitchen, and now they're a collectable! I saw a set in an "antique" store, and couldn't believe they wanted over a hundred for the set of 3! If I'd only known, they wouldn't have gone into a garage sale! A great set Shelia!

  33. I had to come back and look again. I just love the STRAWBERRIES with the pink pyrex! Way to cute. I think I need to go buy some strawberries!

  34. Hi Shelia, Oh you lucky girl. I adore the pattern too. Reunited is the perfect song title for your lovely bowls. Your strawberries are perfectly wonderful. Do you get them at a farmers market? We have been eating lots of strawberries here in the mountains as they are in season. I have never tasted better strawberries then the crop this year. We have had lots of rain so maybe that is the reason. What did you make with all those strawberries? I have even frozen some for the week we have the grands and our daughters. We are making strawberry preserves. YUM!

    Wishing you a happy pink Sat. and Father's Day weekend.
    love, Jeanne

  35. Sweet pattern and colors and the strawberries are a great touch.

  36. Hello Shelia,

    I love the color of these bowls!
    I have seen the blue ones but never
    the pink! I am glad you found the
    lost member of the family.

    Bear Hugs,

  37. You know I am drooling over those bowls. Love. Love. Love.

  38. You made me smile. I am happy that you found your bowls. Maybe daddy will show up one day. :)

  39. Shelia, these are so beautiful. I am so glad that you found the last baby, they needed to be a complete family. I agree that pattern is so pretty and those strawberries look so yummy. We are having a hard time finding good strawberries just now.
    Have a blessed week, Ginger

  40. This is such a pretty set of Pyrex! And to find the mother bowl....Woohoo! Thank you for sharing at TTF this past week!

  41. You were featured on the Blog Post Office and so was I. Love your Gooseberry casseroles, that's one of the prettier patterns!


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
