Sorry, not a great pic, but I think you get the idea. I also have a table and counters covered in my kitchen. And even my hearth as you can see here, this is a partial set of Franciscan Starburst Pottery. My husband remembers eating on these dishes everyday as a child. When his grandmother died, it went in the attic and they started using her dishes, which his dad still uses today.
A close up of the platter. I would definitely call this mid century modern. And it is bringing a pretty decent price on e-bay. There is alot of it missing and I am sure there must be more back in the attic, so I will probably pack it back up until I can get the whole set together.
This is a four piece set (sorry, the plates are in the other room) of cobalt blue glassware. I identified it as a product of the Hazel-Atlas glass company from the 1940's and 50's.
Now onto thrifting over the weekend, we thought we would hit a couple of garage sales and ran across this bedroom set from the 1930's. I was pretty excited to hear it was only $100 for the whole set. The vanity has a piece of trim missing above the drawer on the left, so I will have to see if I can find something close, or replace the trim on the whole thing.
I loooove the round mirror that goes over the vanity. It shows its age, but i think that gives it character. The trim over the top is beautiful.
The bed is a full size and was complete with the footboard, headboard and side rails.
I can't wait to get to work painting her. I think she will look beautiful in an off white. And last but not least is the tall chest. I am not crazy about the handles, so I will have to find a set that will be suitable. Hobby Lobby here I come! Watch for this at the antique mall.
My last treasure for the weekend was another garage sale that we hit on our lunch hour on Friday. I bought a chair and a few other small things and when I was paying I spotted this box full of lanterns buy the door. $5.00 for the whole box!!! Do those look Pottery Barn like or what?
They are a little dirty, but I can clean them up pretty easy! Bonus!!! Oh and there is also a spoon rack in the box. I have a project in mind for it that I saw on blogland.
Thanks for looking!
