Retro Saturday

It seems that Saturday rolls around much more quickly than other days and I fear I'll 'run out' of things to share with you. No worries today. I have a few things left from last week's thrift adventure at the Parker Street Furniture Store.

I've featured Blue Mountain Pottery before. I think I like it because it is made in Canada and there are not that many (I encourage you to prove me wrong now) pottery studios in Canada that have come to be so collectible as BMP. This vase was something I hadn't seen before, so I scooped it up for an unbelievable low price.

As you may have gathered from these 'retro' posts I love salt and peppers. Have no clue why either. They are usually so cute and tiny that I can't resist. These have no markings but I suspect they were made in Japan for the North American market.

What the heck?! No, it isn't our 25th. anniversary, we have long passed that one! This little dish with violets was so pristine and cute, well you know the rest.......

I have never seen this company before, Royal Victorian. Looked it up but couldn't find anything. Lots of Royal Victoria though.

The very retro coffee mug. I have so many of these in all colours from Jadite to pale yellow. They are the 'classic' mug that I, at least, identify with the old 'diners' and restaurants of the 50's and 60's. Very cheap to produce at the time and everyone had them.

This particular mug was made by the 'Anchor Hocking'   Glass can see the anchor in the centre.

Speaking of coffee, I haven't had my 'fix' yet (green tea of course) ! And we are off to Dad's in a few minutes to bring him lunch/dinner. I made a beef stew yesterday and it will be just what the doctor ordered on this snowy winter day in Nova Scotia.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.
