It must be Sue’s : ) And it is. Turquoise with white and grey dogwood, and the PERFECT new set of dishes to go on this!
While at the Alameda Flea Market last month, first she came across the set we used in day 59. That was the first find of the day but THIS set was the BIG find of the day!
She found a 60 plus piece set of this glorious dishware. Some were grey, some were turquoise, all looked like they’d never been used. We ‘think’ they’re Monterey pottery but they’re tough to track down. The bowls were in their original boxes but with no other marking than their color name.
We couldn’t decide if we liked the turquoise bowl on the grey salad plate on the grey dinner plate OR…
The problem with some of the pieces was the glazes – they tended to be very different colors. Sometimes the grey was quite purple, sometimes quite yellow. There were two sets of these, however:Amazing salt and peppers! We both love the swoops of the 50’s modern style and had a hard time deciding which to use today. That’s ok, we have LOTS more days and opportunities to bring these back out : )
