Grant Crest and Vernonware - I'm in Love!


 
When I was in the thrift store, I picked up a Tickled Pink Vernonware pink speckled bowl and I showed it to my husband and said "there is something familiar about this".  I didn't buy it that day, but I went home and did some research and I was back to the thrift store the next day!  That started my quest for 1950s dinnerware.  To make a long story short--I ran across the Grant Crest Tempo pattern and it was love at first sight.  I became obsessed with finding pieces and I have been successful.  Prices on these are not for the faint of heart!  I've mixed the solid color Vernonware bowls from Heavenly Days, Anytime and Tickled Pink with my Grant Crest Tempo which give me a great selection of shapes to use on a daily basis.  I'm still on the lookout for some pieces to add to my set, but I'm quite content with what I have amassed so far!
