Catching up on all my finds!!! -- Pyrex, pottery and More!

As usual, I'm rushing to put this post together.  I have been so busy with vintage collecting activities, Pyrex trading and selling and all those other things life demands.  Now the weather is nice and I need to tend to my garden as well.  I hastily took pictures this morning, so they suffer, but we'll just ignore that today.  Enough dialog, here are my finds!

One of my fun Pyrex finds last week, a red 401!

And the elusive Friendship 404!  Yay!!!

Had a great trade with a trader on the west coast.  Finished up my Daisy and so close to being done with Verde!

Found some great vintage pottery including the California pottery lazy Susan set.  I've never seen one with a deviled egg plate as the center piece and it has this awesome rooster on it.  It looks baby blue in this image on my computer, but it is turquoise.

I absolutely DON'T need anymore atomic pottery dishes, but no way I was going to leave these Salem China North Star pieces at the thrift.



Found the mate to my salt/pepper set and this turquoise pottery egg cup looking piece that is too big to be an egg cup.

Mod kitsch--the footed mug is Holt Howard dated 1967.


Lots more kitsch...



Love this darling little deer with pink rhinestone eyes.


This little gal needs a new do.  Gonna see if I can find a troll to get some new hair for her.

So excited about this set of metal worked pictures made in Hong Kong.  They need cleaning and hanging.

And we got hubby this super cool chest of drawers for his dressing room  He saw it and fell in love with it.  I could tell he was dead set on getting it and I couldn't blame him.  Fits perfectly in his room.

All of this and I'm tending my garden and still making sure Mr. Bossy Boots corgi gets the attention he demands!!!


I'm linking up with Sir-Thrift-A-Lot at Thriftasaurus!  Gotta get over there and see what's happen' on the finds for everybody else!

  1. Your husband's chest is really gorgeous but I can't believe you found a mate to your salt/pepper set! I've seen random ones alone so many times but I always pass them up never expecting to find the other. I hope to find starburst plates one day :)

    1. I know Anny! How lucky to run into the mate for the shaker--I never even thought about ever finding another one, so it was a great surprise!

    1. Holly, there's another version of that pattern, it's magenta on speckled ground and called Hopscotch. I have the bottom of a sugar bowl, how I would love to find another piece!!!!

  4. What a treat of a post!! I love every single thing, but the CA pottery-swoon worthy! I have never seen anything like it.

    You don't think that is an egg cup? Maybe jumbo eggs ;)

    No way could you leave those gorgeous atomic dishes at a thrift, no lover of atomic pottery would do that! They are so beautiful, I have never come across that pattern.

    Beautiful chest-do you have any idea of the age? It has to be midcentury, and it looks perfect in the room. The metal worked pictures....what a find!

    1. Oh yes Maureen, that pottery piece is divine. Wish it had the makers name on it though--only has Calif USA and a number. It would take a mighty big egg to fill that cup! Not a chicken egg for sure. Can't find any info on the chest of drawers, my gut tells me it's 40s.

    1. I know Holly, that elephant was so darling, I couldn't leave him. The chest of drawers definitely holds a lot, it's 50" tall! Wish Jerry could come over and wear Mr. Bossy Boots out!!

  6. Loòooooooove this stuff! You don't need any more atomic pottery dishes & I need at least one piece, funny how that works! So much goodness - egg cup, your salt shaker mate (love stretch necks!), your pink guys, that little Holt Howard cup. Great scores Evie! Glad to see your Pyrex collection growing quickly, too.
