Franciscan Del Mar

I did quite a bit of my Christmas shopping over the weekend, and while I was out, I made a few minutes to visit a couple of my favorite flea markets / antique malls.  As I posted over at The Pyrex Collective, I picked up a few pieces of Pyrex.  However, my favorite find of the weekend was this Franciscan Del Mar pattern chop plate / platter.  I absolutely love this pattern.  It may now be my favorite mid-century pattern.  It is in excellent condition, and a steal at $6!  My Sunday School class is responsible for taking fellowship refreshments to church this month, so this platter held half of the cookies that I took - 4 dozen chocolate chip.  I put the 4 dozen snicker-doodles in my square yellow Pyrex bowl.  Anyway, every one of the chocolate chip cookies were eaten.

Here are the three pieces of Pyrex that I picked up.

Two lime green two quart baking dishes.  These are going to look great with some nice warm brownies in them!

A Terra Cotta Rose 474-B casserole.  Great fall colors, perfect for next Thanksgiving!
