So I have a new obsession. I'm not sure when it began. It happened gradually while selling and "checking out the competition" on Etsy. I noticed lots of whites, French Farmhouse and IRONSTONE. So, I'd look and look and drool.
Gradually, I began looking for it on my thrift hunts. I started collecting/selling platters. But then I found and started loving restaurantware. Now that I'm on the hunt for it all the time, I wonder how many great pieces I've passed up! This is a GORGEOUS cup and saucer set by Homer Laughlin. I love the pieces but I also love the history behind it.
I just ADORE these little creamers. They are so cute in a grouping or by themselves holding a spray of flowers or a bud. These pieces are always very heavy and usually in pretty good condition. They were made to endure the everyday use and abuse (LOL) of roadside diners all across the USA.
Once in awhile, I'll find a cutie like this small "sauce" dish. I think it's so sweet for holding rings, earrings or loose change.
Have a great week ahead!
