Nice...

Just a few little items I bought recently for no other reason than I like them :-)

I'm not usually a fan of yellow but the starkness of the colour and art deco shape of this bowl won me over - $1.

These bowls and dishes aren't vintage but they are gorgeous - 50 cents each.

Denby pottery is made in England and is hugely popular in Ireland aswell, pretty much every Irish bride has a Denby dinner service on her wedding list - I got this casserole for $4 in Vinnie's.

This cute pair of milk glass candy/dessert dishes were $1 each, they have a fruit pattern on one side and a floral on the other.

I really love the aqua/brown colours of this mug, I wish there had been more than one - 20 cents.

This corning ware saucepan was 50 cents - made in Australia.

Nice indeed. My mum has a Corning Ware coffee pot with that design and I think I had a toy cookware set with the same pattern.

I would have bought that yellow bowl too. Very nice! I love that mug too. I have plans to use those colors in my computer room when I organize and decorate in there. Someday soon. :)

Ooh, the Denby casserole looks great! This brand of dinnerware is quite popular in Canada as well.

Buying something just because we like it is one of the benefits of thrift: What we like, even on a whim, will not cost the earth! I like everything else you bought too. Denby is lovely and I am lucky to have a few thrifted pieces. My Mum has the a large set of the Corningware. Thanks for nudging me to look at Grunge Queen-I just had not got around to it and now I know what I was missing.

Sigh, I love the blue too, I so would have snapped those babies up too. And Denby, wow, not cheap stuff, congrats! Thanks so much, btw, for sending Thoroughly Modern Vintage my way - she lives in my home town and I love her blog!

The blue bowls and dishes for 5o cents? even if they're not vintage, I would have totally gone for them..! I like the subtle scalloped detail, and the color is beautiful.

Grate finds!
