VTT


On my post on Tuesday I showed a platter that I joined up with a Noritake teacup my daughter found at a yard sale. We both bought our pieces on the same day, but at different points on the map.

The platter has very lovely roses and beautiful scroll work around the plate. It is marked Paden City Pottery Co. USA. I've never heard of this company before, but because it is a made in USA piece, I thought it would be a nice addition to my other pieces. Not knowing that my daughter bought this china cup (for $1.00)!

I think they look very lovely together.

And on Monday I made a quick stop at the Goodwill where I came away with yet another platter.

I almost passed this one by, but on turning it over found that it was Mikasa Made in Germany.

It is a Christmas plate and is quite nice.

Bells and Poinsettias.

There were quite a few Mikasa pieces at the Goodwill on Monday, but I only picked up this one.

However, I could not pass up Fire King Peach Lustre for $1.00!

to add to my collection of course.

Please be sure to stop by Coloradoladys blog and take a peek at the other vintage goodies this week!

Jocelyn, you've done really well picking up some lovely pieces. Love Noritake ...

Sherry is still in hospital & I'll talk to her again tonight to see how she is doing. She sounds a teeny wee bit better in her voice tonight.

Hugs, Marydon

Everytime I read about someone's visit to Goodwill, I get so excited and cannot stand the idea that something is out there and I haven't gotten to it yet! I sound just like those Hoarders on TV!

Pretty, pretty pieces! I had some peach lustre pieces a few years ago that was starting to look like yet another collection. I think I sold some and gave some away. I enjoyed seeing yours, as well as your nice platters today!

I didn't know you collected lustreware! I always thought collecting that to use in the Fall, but I have nowhere to store any more dishes. I love that Christmas plate too. So many uses for that, from cookies to candles!
Happy VTT!
