Cathrineholm find and long time no see

 Hello! It's been ages since I've posted last or even been out thrifting. But I did get out this past weekend and pick up a few things I thought I'd share.

First up, this Cathrineholm bakeware pan is only my second piece of the much beloved Lotus pattern, and only the 3 piece of Cathrineholm I've ever purchased. I was walking around an antique store, not finding much, then suddenly appears the booth of my dreams with everything I happen to collect.

You ever experience that? Everything was priced to average ebay asking prices, but I was feeling spendy, and was truly enjoying debating which of the many fantastic things I saw that was going to come home with me. And being than anything Cathrineholm is a few and far between spot for me, I picked this dish as my prize.

Another booth was having a half off sale and I scooped up with Horizon Blue 503 refrigerator dish with glee for 10.50. I adore this pattern.

And finally, these are all Good will finds for less than $3 total, so I'm pleased. This recipe holder was 99 cents and quite possibly my favorite recipe box ever!

And a couple of odd dishes. The turquoise dish is some kind of undertray for something Pioneer Woman I've yet to research what all it came with. Cream and sugar I'm assuming, and probably the red/turquoise mix and match floral patterns than seem to be the main decorations in her line. I've narrowly avoided falling into the endless sea of cute Pioneer Woman home stuff. I did cave and buy what I think is all the jadeite cake stands that have been a part of her line. (Old post here if you care to check it out.

The sweet little pink saucer is a LuRay pastel, date stamped 1/42, which I believe means it was actually manufactured in January of 1942 (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

I bought an whole box of LuRay pastels at a community yardsale years ago (which I also blogged here) and haven't really picked up a new piece since. I have a shelf full of LuRay, Cronin Tulip, and Anchor Hocking pastel Vitrock that I've doved-tailed into being all one collection since it coordinates.

So there's my finds for now. I feel like I've got the bug back and I'm ready for some new thrifting, antiquing and yard sale adventures this year.

Hope you are yours are well and that you're still finding nifty thrifty treats and treasures.

Happy Thrifting!


  1. I just randomly stumbled upon your blog and I’m loving it! I too am a collector and have just started selling too (it was bound to happen since I’ve collected myself into a hoarding state). May I ask what those chicken cookie jars are? I actually just picked one up at a thrift store recently but had no idea what it was called!

    1. Hi! Thanks for reading!

      The chicken canisters are Chicken Little collection from Sears & Roebuck, 1976. There was a whole line of matching items, many of which I've never seen. But if you do a quick google image search there's some catalog images that show the range of items.

      Good luck with your collection and thanks for commenting!
