How old is my Pyrex measuring cup?

I've purchased a few vintage Pyrex measuring cups at estate sales and yard sales over the years.

Low-Budget Food Challenge

Last night on the way home from work, I stopped by Target and the pet food store to pick up a few things. I had to stop because my dogs completely ran out of food that morning. There was a family outside of Target with a sign indicating they were struggling to feed their family.… Continue reading Low-Budget Food Challenge
