Hello Pink-Lovin’ Blog Friends! Pink Saturday is my favorite event. I have come to know that the pink-lovers are just the sweetest and kindest people out there. I hope that you visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. You will find all kinds of pink goodness.
Homer Laughlin is the maker of Fiesta dinner ware; the restaurant quality dishes that are my favorite. My hubby knew how badly I wanted them and got me a wonderful set for our family of 7, about 17 Christmases ago. They are pink, yellow, turquoise, purple, mint green, cobalt blue and another blue and persimmon. In 17 years of hard-core use; I have broken 2 pieces on our tiled kitchen floor. Oh, they have been dropped a lot. It, thankfully, takes a lot to break them!
I happened upon a Salvation Army thrift store in a town I don’t normally get to. Of course I had to check it out and I was so glad that I did. I found these heavy plates with the sweetest pink and green flower design with vines and swirls. I flipped them over; I always flip things over to see what it says underneath, and this is what it said:
I assume this is the same Homer Laughlin that makes the Fiesta. It never dawned on me that they would make other designs. I would like to know more about this. Does anyone out there have any Homer Laughlin that is not Fiesta?
I guess I should mention that the 6 plates @ .30 each are happily at home with me. :)
I have been busy making my gift items for the Holidays and have made extra to share with the readers.
I have 3 French Lavender Sachets in beaded organza bags.
And a giant 1 pound bag of Rose Hips, Perfect Little Pumpkins, Cinnamon sticks, Bael Slices and Belani Apples. Choose your scent for this potpourri: Buttery Cinnamon Buns, Apple Barrel, Pumpkin Spice, Amish Kitchen,or Vanilla-Cinnamon.
