Starburst Thrift Share

I hope everyone is having a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend. I'm going to spend the holiday bbq'ing at my dad's house =D Afterward, I'm going to play some Texas Hold 'Em at Casino Arizona. I've had a great weekend so far. I hit an estate sale Friday that had some really cool mid century stuff but they were so overpriced. Luckily the sale was about a half mile away from my favorite thrift shop (The ARC in Tempe) so I stopped in after the sale and found this lovely Franciscan Starburst pitcher.

And this serving bowl in the same pattern.


This is a lovely pattern and oh so atomic, but it's not one I collect. I'm firmly devoted to the Corelle Spring Blossom dish set (also known as Crazy Daisy), which I had growing up. They're my every day dishes. My "fancy" dishes are Canonsburg Temporama, which I'm super in love with. So, these pretties are destined for my Etsy shop =)

Earlier in the week I hit a couple of Goodwills. Most the stops were a bust but I did manage to find another Treasure Craft piece to add to my growing collection! I swear I turn into a five year old when I see Treasure Craft, it makes me so happy!


Here's a close up because the details are too gorgeous to ignore.


Thanks for reading everyone! I'm linking up to Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday and Her Library Adventures Flea Market Finds. Stay safe and happy this weekend and come back tomorrow for another Vintage Hot or Not!

  6. Have a great BBQ weekend! I have seen a lotta bloggers write about the starburst pattern but haven't seen them in the wild myself yet.

  7. Have a wonderful memorial day!

    The starburst pieces are great, they have a good weight to them. I recently came across some Canonsburg Temporama pieces, it was the first time I'd seen them but the pattern definitely caught my eye!
