My Top Ten Favorite Finds of 2013 - #8

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!  This one will be quick because I haven't wrapped a single gift and it's time to get my crap together!  I'm continuing with my my top ten list.  So far holiday stuff has occupied the countdown, with vintage Christmas ornaments at #10 and vintage Halloween decorations at #9.  Next is...
#8 - Franciscan Star Burst Mugs
These wonderfully atomic Star Burst Franciscan mugs came in and out of my life all to quickly.  I found them back in April and sold them within a few hours of getting them listed online.  I was kind of sad to let them go.  Ok, super sad, they're so cool!  If I had to collect a fancy and expensive hand wash only china pattern, this would totally be it.  

I'm joining the parties at  Sir Thrift A LotRemnantMod Vintage LifeThe Thrifty GrooveA Living SpaceIvy And ElephantsThe Cottage MarketWe Call It Junkin' and Apron Thrift Girl. Have a great week everyone!


  1. Vintage coffee mugs are always so small that I would have had a hard time letting those go because they look HUGE!!!

    Merry Christmas, Melissa~


  2. I am still so jealous of your amazing Halloween find scores. I looove Halloween everything, especially vintage ones. These mugs are gorgeous. I love Franciscan starburst plates that promptly sold at the Goodwill pound store of all places! Quick lucky.

  3. I would LOVE to find some of these! I have six of the plates, and I love how these are big enough for today's single-serve coffee makers ( a problem with a lot of vintage mugs, they're usually 6 or 8 oz.) Featuring on the Link Party Features Pinterest board! I hope your Christmas was wonderful. Thanks for sharing this at the History & Home link party. Take care - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com

  4. My mom had the complete set of these dishes when I was a kid - I'm thinking in the late 50s early 60s

  5. They scream mid century! I love them! What a score!

  6. Here's wishing you and yours a New Year that is filled with Love...Compassion...Health...Joy....Faith...Friends...Family...Charity...Humanity...Insight...Happiness...Insight...Peace and Inner Peace!
