****** Thank you Elizabeth for pointing out the fact that November 20th is my anniversary for one year hosting Vintage Thingies Thursday.....it slipped my mind....I took over VTT from Lisa, The Apron Queen when her life took her in a different direction, and had to give up blogging....this day was just too good to let go that easy, so I took it over.....thank you girls for your support over the last year and for showing up each and every week.....and Thanks Elizabeth....for keeping me up to date......I really appreciate it!!!

This week, I have some really neat bowls that I came across at out local Goodwill a few weeks ago. I loved the design and the pattern and of course, I knew they were old, so I loved that about them.

Too bad I did not have a whole set....the looks sort Thanksgiving-y to me......but I do love the color. I got 5 bowls for $2.00....bargain.


Here is the marking on the back of the bowl. If you look closely, you can see the crazing in the ironstone....love that too!

This one is displayed on top of my cabinet in the laundry room, and I have the others tucked away in a safe place!!

I hope everyone has a great holiday week ahead....I will have a Vintage Thingies post up for Thanksgiving....I am sure most of you will by busy, but some of us...well....we are creatures of habit and will show up! I am listing my holiday plan on Friday, with a few healthy recipes....if you care to take a peek! Have a great Vintage Thursday everyone!!!

  1. I'm so excited to be first on the Linky; I've never had that anywhere before!
    You know me, Suzanne! I'll definitely be here next week. Can't decide if I'll post something Thanksgiving, or just start right off w/ Christmas.

  13. Hi Suzanne:
    I linked to the party but I don't see my link showing...no telling what I did wrong :-)

    Jane

  24. Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary! It's been a wonderful year.

    Your plate is gorgeous and even though a whole set would be nice, I guess we should all be thankful for what we HAVE found this year!

    Happy Thanksgiving Suzanne!

  26. The bowls are truly lovely. I think you are right, it is a kind of cheery harvest pattern in a way. Nice to have reds instead of just oranges and browns for Thanksgiving!

  28. That is a great dish! What a fun pattern!

  29. Those are pretty bowls; you have a way of finding the cutest items.

    As for trees, I don't like my house or yard in shade. I don't like dark. I like light and bright! I guess I'm a perfect person to live in Florida. I want Palm trees.

  31. Lovely plates, perfect for thanksgiving dinner - congrats on hosting VTT for a year!

  32. Lovely post, and happy anniversary! How cool is that! I, too, had no idea you took this over for someone else - it can be a lot of work, I have found out, after starting my own 'little' meme. It's been fun, though, and I do join in yours when I can find something interesting around to show off! Have a great rest o the week!

  33. Guess I am going to have to give you my Goodwill gift card. You seem to do better at finding things. You did good on the bowl. It is a real pretty keeper.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a fantastic find you got in those bowls. They are absolutely beautiful. Hopefully you can find many more pieces to go with them. I see there are Mason replacement sites online but ebay would be a lot less spendy! ;-)
    Congrats on your year of being our hostess and thank goodness you took over - this is such a great posting subject - 'til I run out anyway. LOL
    Well, I'm waaaaaaay down there at number 31 but o'well just glad to be back and posting again!!!

  35. $2 for 5 bowls? Goodwill really is good in your area!

    The painting along the edge makes the plates appear to have a scalloped edge - so pretty.

    Happy Anniversary!

  36. how very pretty...
    you are a treasure hunting queen!

  37. Oh wow -- you got an amazing, amazing bargain there -- Mason's ironstone is very collectible! It's a gorgeous pattern, too -- very classic, and very old. Lovely!

    That pattern is so beautiful; love the deep rich colors. Charming!
    Cass
    PS I love the subtle crazing too. So beautiful, and a reminder of the pieces' age.

  38. What treasures you found. This is my first VTT and I have had a lot of fun. Thank you so much for hosting.


    Cheers,

  39. Suzanne,

    This is the second week I have not been able to sign up on McLinky, and the second time I cannot click on anyone else's link, either.

    Has anyone else mentioned this?

  42. Happy VTT Anniversary! I'm not posting this week...still on vacation but glad I checked in! I can't thank you enough for picking up the mantle from Lisa and continuing VTT! You've seen it grow ever bigger too!

    ReplyDelete
  43. The dishes are beautiful! We've never had a set of dishes, together, just bits and pieces that have come down through the years. One of these days I'll find a set I truly love and then have a decision to make.

    I'm enjoying VTT, thanks for hosting.

Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!

Suzanne
