Before the pink took over.... I had a thing for green and yellow.

In honor of the whole green Irish celebration at ~Tablescapers~ this weekend... I am revisiting some of my favorite Green and Yellow vintage kitchen wares. 

I still love these. It was the first legit pattern I collected and used as daily dishes. This is the china/pottery? pattern named "Mildred". And was once very plentiful in the local antique stores. Of course this was back in the mid-late 1980's. The last time I came across any of it in a antique store, the prices were ridiculous. I have not bought any of it in ages. 
And once upon a time I constantly came across small pottery bowls. Cheap. So I have 4 of each of these styles. That bowl in the yellow has the best pattern! 

Then at one point in the early 1990's the price of old pottery got grossly over priced. Still is over priced. I never did buy the normal dinner plates for this Mildred pattern. I only have platters and serving bowls.

And like an idiot. I always put them in the dishwasher. And the majority of the gold painted trim is long gone. 

Since I am showing off green things that I love.... here is my pottery creamer. I keep my Equal packets in it and it resides on my counter.
Then this charming green and yellow spice rack is still one of my all time favorite kitchen item.
I really do  love all the green and yellow kitchen stuff. Even if the Pink has taken over. I do keep odds and ends of the green scatter about my kitchen.

Be sure to look at all the pretty things at ~Tablescapers this weekend too!

I can see why you love "Mildred," it's a beautiful pattern! It reminds me of my Duchess that I used for a Valentine 'scape last month. Thanks for sharing such a pretty pattern. Here from Tablescaper. I hope you'll visit back.

My aunt had the same dishes back in the 50's. Love your pitcher as well!

I have quite a bit of the mildred pattern, dishes, cups saucers, serving bowls, they were my mother's wedding china in 1939. I still cherish them.
