Just for the Hull of it.....

I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday's Birthday. I have participated in this event since my beginnings in the world of blogging. I never knew how much "pink" I had and how much more would find its way into my life. I love vintage pottery. And I love Hull Pottery and now I have started collecting to fill the shelves that house the Murphy Bed in my studio.....A minimalist I am not.

This pattern is called Blossom Flite and was manufactured in the 50's. There are not a gazillion pieces so it is conceivable that I could collect most of them and the prices are fair.

And the inside of the pottery is a glorious pink!

First I found the teapot...then the creamer.

Ebay had the covered sugar.

I found a cornucopia on Ebay.

I hope to find some more this summer.

Please be sure to stop by and say Happy Birthday Pink Saturday.

Beverly, thank you for the awesome job you do!

How lovely! Isn't finding something new to collect always fun? Especially dishes. :) These are really pretty.

Vee said...

Hull is new to me. Very interesting styling and the pink insides really are special. I'm sure that you must check often to find the pieces that you're looking for. If I ever see some in my travels, I'll think of you.

Hi Carol!

I've never seen that Hull pottery design but I ♥ it! I bet it looks wonderful against the dark woods of your shelves in your sewing room.

I'm sorry I haven't been around lately to comment. I'm one of the ones that couldn't log into my blogger account. I think it was mostly us FireFox users.

Anyway, safe travels as you head north. Wave as you go by, although I know Ohio isn't on your route, still....

How unusual your new collection is, I have never seen or heard of it before but I like it!

It's beautiful. The pottery has a lot of character. I hope you continue to have the opportunity to collect more pieces.

Yahoo my blogger is back and I am here to visit you. I have never seen this pattern before. Hull has so many it is hard to choose which you like the most. Good luck on your hunt.

Just lovely...don't you just love the thrill of the hunt!?

Beverly said...

Oh my, Carol. These are gorgeous. I love Hull, and I don't think I have ever seen this pattern. Happy hunting!

Happy Pink Saturday. Thank you for always making Pink Saturday special.
