JUNKIN FINDS FRIDAY #17

Welcome to Junkin Finds Friday!
We had so much fun last week with 58 of you sharing your junkin finds!  Thank so much!!
This week I must say I haven't had much luck, the three stores I visited I left empty handed...yes it happened...
nothing, nada, zip, zero! 
Yikes! 
So I'm sharing a post from last February 

Hope you enjoy my post about Depression glass

 
I am by no means any kind of an expert on Depression Glass but I do love it and have collected a few pieces.  My first love was the cobalt blue and I found this piece on ebay
 

This is a candy dish in the Mt. Pleasant or "Double Shield" pattern
Made by L.E. Smith Glass Co 1920's -1934 


This plate is also in the same pattern  along with this creamer
 

This piece has a silver band but has faded with time
 

The pattern of the above creamer & sugar is called MODERNTONE made by Hazel-Atlas Glass Co 1934-1942 & late 1940's - early 1950's.  This pattern seems to have some of the most reasonable prices maybe due to it's simple style.
 

These pink & one green pieces are random thrift store finds
I believe they are all depression glass and not reproductions, but I am not sure.  Like I said NOT an expert or even all that knowledgeable.
  
 I love the edge of this compote
 
A couple of glasses with different patterns
 

One piece of green again found in a thrift shop

Collector's Encyclopedia of Depression GlassI have not had the time to research all the patterns of the pink and green glass but when I do I will use this book.  I got mine from Amazon.com and there is a newer addition now.  I have found this to be an amazing resource.  There are so many patterns and colors to learn about.

I hope some of you have had better luck this week.  If not feel free to share any past junkin finds!  

Remember to link up you post not just your blog.  Please include a link in your post back to this party!  That's it.

Happy Junkin,
Linda

Linda, sorry you didn't have any luck this week. I am sure that happens sometimes. Thanks for hosting.

Deb said...

The pink depression glass is pretty. It looks almost like a peach colour in the photos.

Betsy said...

You'll make up for your dry week soon;-)
I have several pieces of green depression glass that I picked up here and there. I don't see too much of the blue, but it's always been my favorite. I love that little rectangular pitcher.
Good luck this weekend in your junkin adventures.

Linda I love the colors of your depression glass. For some reason I never collected much of it but have always loved it. Thanks for the heads up on the book. I think I need that one.
Next week I'm sure you'll find great treasures!...I know how it goes, some weeks there's nothing at all, and others there's way too much for the budget!*winks* Vanna

Audra said...

I have a set of yellow that was my grandmothers and a set of aqua that was hers as well but passed on down to my mother.
I love the colors and designs on these dishes, thank you so much for sharing your collection, it brings back memories of these grand dishes.

My mother collects Green Depression glass while I prefer pink. Cherry Blossom is my favorite pattern. Yours is very pretty and I think I have either a newer or older edition of that guide you have. Thank you for hosting.

Donnie said...

I have to say the blue is my favorite but I love all the glassware. It really sparkles. Very nice.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Linda, You have some beautiful pieces, and to me, you sound VERY knowledgeable! of course, since I collect what I love without ever researching it, it isn't saying much for me to think you know a lot about it. I love all of that cobalt. Thank you for hosting. laurie

Lovely! When I was in college, I would go to the flea market in Nashville and buy Depression Glass for a couple of dollars a piece. I still use them. I love all your different pieces. Thanks for commenting on my post.

Jane said...

Some "junkin" weeks are like that, aren't they? Now probably this next week you'll find ton's of stuff! I enjoyed your post on depression glass. I have a good friend who is clearing out her uncle's estate. She said he had a lot of what she thought might be depression glass. I'm going to tell her about that book.
Thanks for hosting!
Jane

Hi Linda, It's been ages since we've visited. You have such pretty collections. And I'm so glad you're happy and doing well. Blessings, Mollye

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

I adore depression glass and have a few pieces of my own. I even own some cobalt blue! You have lovely pieces; I am drooling and green with envy!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Pretty collection. I really like the blue. I have left many sales empty handed - which is probably a good thing for me. :D
Enjoy your weekend.

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Hello Linda,
Sorry that you didn't have any luck this week:( When cleaning out my in-laws house we found boxes and boxes of depression glass...so much that we had to buy a special china cabinet to hold all of it...looks like my mother-in-lawa saw lots if movies in new oreleans...it was all the pink dishes...maybe her favorite color!

Blessings,
Linda

Marigene said...

You have a wonderful collection of Depression Glass, Linda. I love the blue.

Douce France..... said...

I don't call these Junk at all!
So pretty colors and details...
Very Nice!

CAS said...

I really like your pieces whether they are Depression or not. I have some pieces from my Great-Grandmother. At least I think they are Depression. They are the pink color. I should take pics & post them so maybe someone here in bloggy-land could let me know if they are or not. I don't really care because they are treasures to me.

Alana in Canada said...

Your dishes are lovely. What a treeat to see them. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate the comment. Have a great weekend.

Sarah said...

Linda, I've rarely seen blue Depression Glass. Your pieces are lovely. I only have one piece. It's a pink cake plate that had belonged to my grandmother, passed on to me via my mom.
Thanks for hosting! ~ sarah

Rebecca said...

I haven't been finding much lately either-I think it's that time of the year!

SavannahGranny said...

I absolutely love the depression glass. Since I love blue so much, I especially love moderntone. I have always love that one. Thanks for sharing this redux.
I am joining your party late. For some reason I had it in my mind for Saturday. I was in such a hurry to get something out, I have been adding the parties each day and I thought this was Saturday. You know what they say about old dogs. I will learn sooner or later.
Hugs, Ginger

Michele Smith said...

Happy weekend!

Linda, Linda, thank YOU so much for stopping by at my blog. I am replying to all your kind comments there. Your blog post is so delightful!!! I simply love the green goblet. Tell us what you plan to do with that... how will you decorate it? Will you put in some sea shells in there or will you sprinkle baby's breath to its brim?

Linda said...

I come out empty handed some weeks, too! Love you beautiful depression glass pieces!

Angie, Catladyland/Katt Food said...

How cool! I don't know much about depression glass, but what you have is really beautiful!

sissie said...

Hi Linda!
All I did this weekend was waste gas!!! LOL!
I didn't find anything either.
I do love your depression glass collections. Very pretty.

hugs
Sissie

Charlotte said...

Yard sale season can't be too far away! Love the green glass!

Vintage Christine said...

My gosh! So many people comment on your posts that it takes forever to get to the comments box! You are one popular gal, m'deah. Pink and green depression glass is so beautiful and yes, we used to be able to find it in the thrift stores, but now they look it up on the computer before they put it on the floor, darn it. Sometimes eBay is the best and cheapest resource. Whoda thought?

mrs. c said...

I have already commented once on this post but I have to say how much I appreciate your faithful reading of my blog. You are so dear to both Jeff and me, we went to the GoodWill last Monday when I was off from school and several times we picked up something and said," Linda would love this!". That is how much an impact you have had on us! My photos are from last spring, but it is just around the corner......

Mary said...

Love your pretty blue glass, Linda :)

Toronto Yardsaler said...

I love your Depression-era glass. It's funny how something so beautiful came out of such a dark time period.
Your pal,
Erin
P.S. I love how you change the look of your blog from time to time. Go girl!

Susan said...

Hi Linda. Your blue Depression glass is just gorgeous. I love Depression glass but I only have the pink. I inherited some of mine from my Aunt just before she passed away, and she had them from her Mother (my Grandma who passed when I was only 3). I love it and cherish it. But I must admit, the blue is just so beautiful. I really like it quite a bit and I've never seen it before anywhere. Lucky you to have found them.

Hope you are having a lovely week,
Susan

Romeo said...

Charlie! I really have been away too long - your Mom changed the header!?!! We love it!!! It's purrfect!

I enjoyed the post on the depression glass, but was kind of numb. Why? Did she really come away with NOTHING from a visit to her local haunts?!? Now this is a sad day! Purrhaps, she'll score huge when she visits next!

Here's hoping you have a wonderful week! How about this weather?!?!

Purrs!

Romeo

Jenny said...

Moderntone? I have that, just didn't know that's what it's called! I always learn something here! Love it!

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

So much deliciousness.... I LOVE the blue.... After having entire house done in blue in the eighties I swore I'd never have another blue thing again.......ahhhhh..... but I'm hooked on blue again. I'm crazy about it....over the moon, in fact.

Thanks for your sweet words about my new wheels.... I feel soooo encouraged...

Huggies,
Spencer

Sherry from Alabama said...

Your glassware is all so beautiful, but of course my favorite is the pink.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me yesterday and leaving the sweet comment. I hope your weather didn't get too bad. We just had a lot of wind and some rain, no tornadoes thankfully.
