Pyrex Delphite Blue Plates

Hello Readers! I am a little late with my regular Monday post as I had a very busy weekend, enjoying the sun, doing some vegetable gardening, going to a plant sale, watching playoff hockey, and of course a little thrifting.

I am feeling quite lucky with Pyrex finds lately at the thrift stores. These beautiful Pyrex Delphite side plates were sitting amongst a stack on the shelf, but the telltale pie crust trim around the edges caught my attention.

I paid more than I wanted to at $3 per plate, as I was expecting to be able to use a 25% coupon. When I got to the till, I discovered that the discount would only apply to my next purchase. Grumble. I caved and purchased them anyway, because I love my Delphite Casserole and it gets so much practical usage in my kitchen and garden!

I even used them this weekend to hold my onion sets. We prepared a big plot in the garden that gets morning sun and afternoon shade. It'll be the perfect new home for my hydrangeas, and root and leafy veggies like carrots, onions, and lettuce!

Linking up to ATG's Thrift Share Monday!


  1. Sounds like a fantastic weekend!

    Very nice scores too!

  2. Beautiful plates. Well worth the splurge :)

  3. Great find! I don't have any delphite but I want some! Is anything cooler than that lovely shade of icy blue?

  4. Oh those plates are dreamy! Beautiful color. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Vonlipi first tuned me into Delphite. She had a great photo of a bowl of grapes, with the sun shining "through" them, and you could see the shadow of the grapes. Love the translucence!
