daisies at the dairy

My husband and I are dairy farmers in Missouri. And while we grow plenty of crops and feed lots of cows, we also like to see flowers in bloom and our garden flourish. 

It may also be why I've gone a little overboard with buying seeds this year. 


But until our daisies are growing and our clematis is climbing, until the morning glory is winding its way around hedge posts and the bachelors' buttons are blowing in the breeze, we'll stick with the daisies that don't require any fertilizer, water or sunshine: the Pyrex kind! 

{Translation: the best kind.} 

I don't mind planting succulents in Pyrex, but this daisy print gets used often enough that I just couldn't bring myself to do it. It's too yellow! Too fun! Too perfect for spring and summer!

What's your favorite piece of daisy print Pyrex?

I'm new to blogging on the Pyrex Collective IV so thanks for having me! My name is Kali and I'm a Pyrex collector from Minnesota. I'll show you a bit of my collection down below. My favorite patterns are Friendship, Town and Country, and Butterprint.

My Pyrex obsession started with a pink 024 and I haven't looked back since. 

Above is my Friendship collection. Not pictured are the cinderella set and the mixing bowls. There's a space on my shelf because I'm waiting for the divided dish and the 043 to come in the mail. My love of Friendship began when I found the 473 at Goodwill about four years ago. Currently, my most wanted piece of Pyrex is the orange 404. That is at the top of my wish list.  

Above is some of my Town and Country collection along with the Butterprint cinderella bowls I completed recently. 

I have memories of my mom and grandma using Pyrex growing up and that is what got me started collecting. Now I do it because I love it and I love searching for Pyrex. 

I can't wait to learn more about all of you and bring you along on my Pyrex hunts and adventures! Happy Pyrexing!
