Blues, greens and a little white

I don't think anybody's going to be too shocked to learn that my favourite colour is blue, followed closely by green. I also love subdued greys and whites. Here are some favourite finds from the last while in these lovely colours :-)

The colour and shape of this jug are absolute perfection, $1 at a Church Op Shop.

These lovely green casseroles were a couple of dollars each in Vinnies.

I've wanted a cook's measure for ages and was holding out for one in blue or green, I'm delighted to have picked this one up for $4 in Salvos.

I love the organic blobby shape of this salt crock - 50 cents in Vinnies.

These adorable pale green ceramic little mice are for holding cocktail sticks, cute! - $1.50 each in Salvos.

Beautiful duck-egg blue cups and saucers found in Salvos for $2 a set. There's a surprise...

... a heart on the inside :-)

A lovely little leaf design dish - think I paid $1 for this.

I think these are Sake cups - 50 cents each.

More Sake cups? - $1 each.

Lovely bendy vase - $3 in Vinnies.

A nice ceramic container for my bamboo utensils - 50 cents at a Church Op Shop.

A teeny pot - 50 cents.

A pair of gorgeous organic-shaped Alex Liddy milk jugs $2 each in Vinnies.

And finally a cute little pottery bowl - 50 cents at a market.

I've never seen a cook's measure before. Can you tell me more about it?

Love the surprise little sweet heart.

wow - loads of lovely finds. I love aqua-ish shades; how some of those items got given away is a total mystery. I've got a tala measure too - but haven't used it, just had it on the shelf.

I love everything there, all such gorgous shades, I think that jug is my absolute favourite what a find!

Everytime I'm at the thrift store and see a turquoise dish (or pyrex for that matter) I think of you! :)

Hello Vintage said...

That jug is the perfect shape and colour, lovely. What is it made of (plastic or ceramic/pottery)?

Van said...

A sublime mod collection! I love the shapes, colors, all of it!

Loving your milk jugs! Ok, that was not meant to sound so inappropriate, haha.
