Thrifty Thursday Vol. 17: California Pottery

One of my very favorite vintage items to collect is California pottery. I love the gorgeous candy colors and the simple shapes.

A grape-leaf shaped dish in pink and gold...

 A lime green Bauer casserole dish- no lid though, sadly. Maybe I'll come across one someday.

A pair of oatmeal speckled mugs from the brand "California Living'...
(for sale here in my Etsy shop)

I picked up this teal tray the same time I got the yellow one shown in this post.

A uniquely shaped pair of sectional dishes

Phillip found this lidded cup for me- robin's egg blue speckles are my favorite!

A lime green dish by Iroquois Pottery
A pretty orange sectional dish...
(available here in my Etsy shop)

A teal Harlequin creamer...
(for sale here in my Etsy shop)

A lemon yellow pair of Vernon salt and pepper shakers
(for sale here in my Etsy shop)

A dessert plate with a pretty pink glaze...

 I'm in love with this aqua and gold banana-leaf serving set...

A little rust-colored teacup with a scrolled handle...

And a pretty speckled yellow planter!

How's everyone's week going so far? Have you all gotten your Halloween costumes? I decided to be lazy this year and recycle my cowgirl costume from a few years back. We're having a Halloween party at the program where I work and then me and Phillip will probably just pass out candy to the trick-or-treaters at home. 

What are your Halloween plans?


  1. I love California pottery, too! And it's so nice that much of it is still very affordable. I have the teapot that matches your Harlequin creamer in my shop right now. ;) I really love the divided teal tray, too!

    1. Wow, that's a very cool teapot! I love the detail on the lid. Thanks for checking out my blog!

  2. I love all the colors, especially the speckled ones! I think the oatmeal mugs and the robins egg blue lidded cup are my favorites. Thanks for linking us with us!

    1. Thanks Julia! I'm in love with speckled pottery for some reason. Thanks for hosting the link up!
