Did anybody else have problems with Blogger the last couple of days? My post about my boys totally disappeared for a day and then reappeared with the comments gone. For one horrible moment I thought all my comments on all posts would be gone, but it's OK they're still there. It's made me think about doing a backup of my blog though, does anybody know how to do that? I'd appreciate any help :-)

What if...

My love of vintage Pyrex is no secret. The fab colours, retro patterns and shapes are so visually appealing and still functional. So why, oh why, is new pyrex so BORING??? What executive meeting resulted in the decision "Let's just make plain glass". Boring bowls, baking dishes and casseroles, all look the same.

Lots of companies looking for a sales boost have turned to a new generation of designers to give their products a new lease of life, so why can't Pyrex do the same?

Imagine elements from these fab patterns applied to your new bakeware and mixing bowls...

I think if Pyrex commissioned the likes of Cath Kidston, Orla Kiely, Amy Butler and Liberty of London to give their products a new lease of life, their sales would go through the roof.

Just a thought, sigh...
