Yellow Pottery


Yellow pottery makes me happy. Sometimes I have to work hard for this pottery by buying incredibly dirty objects. That yellow bowl is a McCoy planter which was one dollar. Hang on y'all there is an overload of yellow in this vignette but I am loving it.


This urn, in the cloche, was filthy and covered in grease but pristine when I washed it. I paid six dollars for it. Had it been clean it would have been twenty dollars. The little planters are vintage as well. The bottom one is a McCoy.


The vintage 1970's ginger jar lamp had not been dusted since 1980 at least {really people}. The shade was horrid but I paid two dollars and fifty cents for it. I checked that it had no cracks or chips on it and placed my own shade and finial. I have seen these sell for an enormous amount of money on One Kings Lane. I like this lamp so much it has replaced my beloved pineapple lamp.

If you have not checked out my Poise product review and sweepstakes please do here. The sweepstakes ends the end of the month.

  1. That's such a cheery collection of yellow you have there. Those two little flower pots are adorable. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. It was cold here, but I forced myself to get some yard work done anyhow.

  4. Love the McCoy!!
    When I told my daughters I had a "vintage" ginger jar lamp; they laughed at me and said it can't be "vintage" because it's sat next to our bed since the 70s. So Danny said he'd put it out in the garage for a couple of years and bring it back inside --- then it'll be "vintage!"

  5. All the yellow is so bright and cheery, Olive. I especially like the urn in the cloche and the little pots. Makes me want to go dig out some yellow items, but I don't think I have many.

  8. I have a very similar ginger jar lamp in red. I think it's in my 'go to Goodwill' box in the garage. Used to love it but I'm over it. The yellow is sooo pretty!

  13. Yellow is the happiest color - but I can't wear it or even sit in a yellow room without looking sick. I think I'll look for yellow accessories like yours!

  25. I already told my friends about the cooling wipes. They were delighted to find something like that existed. Thanks. You certainly are the queen of arranging things for eye appeal and yellow is your colour!

  26. Hey Olive; Your Mc Coy pieces are so Beautiful!! I rarely ever see yellow pieces while out hunting for finds. I now know why, as the way in which you have yours grouped makes them look Stunning!!
    Thank-You for sharing!

  28. Yellow=Happy. One can't help but smile when yellow is around. Amazing what some change in the bottom of your purse and a little elbow grease will get you when you know what to look for.

  29. I love all of those vintage pieces! They look good all displayed together. They make more of an impact that way. Those were some good deals. If you went to an antique store, you would've paid top dollar for them!

  30. I love your yellow pieces. one of the most fun things to me about thrifting is getting things home and washing and polishing to see what was hidden and what others were obviously not able to see..a jewel in the rough...sometimes I am very thankful for all of the dirt and grime because it caused others to pass it by. :-).
    Love, Mona
