Finding the Unexpected! -- When Things Come Together!

I was tickled recently when I was at the thrift, on my endless hunt for Pyrex and saw something that made my eyes open wide.  Hubby wasn't with me, so I couldn't do the "look at this!"  I picked it up and went looking for hubby and showed him.  Well, he was  a bit puzzled and unimpressed even when I told him this matches one of our  previous finds.  Once we got home and I put things together, he then thought it was cool.

I have a weakness for vintage California pottery, I have to fight sometimes to leave it at the store.  About a year and a half ago I found this covered dish trimmed in gold I couldn't pass up.  On my recent trip I found four matching trays!  I had no idea there were any to go with it--what a nice surprise.  After finding them I decided to keep my eyes open for a lazy susan and that appeared at the next store. The picture is deceiving, the pieces are identical in color and the covered dish is much larger than it looks here.  These dish are rather large, so it will be for around the holidays--fill with meatballs, cocktail shrimp etc. and the covered dish can hold a whole lot of potato salad!


  1. What a wonderful find! I also love the vintage California pottery-I have something very similar but the colors are cream and pink-very pretty. I put the french onion dip in the middle, and different chips in the wedges-reminds me of the Bunco parties my parents had in the 1960's :)

    1. What a great memory Maureen! The California potters sure made some neat stuff back then!
