Today is Tuesday and I'm joining three fun parties!!
Troy over at I REFUSE TO RECEDE for his Tuesday Trivia. I'm also joining in a new blog party at COASTAL CHARM I hope you will check it out. LINDA (isn't that a great name) will be our hostess for this party. I'm also joining Diane at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words For 2nd Time Around Tuesday
Saturday I went to Athens, GA to spend the day with my daughter Sara and her husband Blake. We had a wonderful birthday lunch for Sara (great Pizza at Metropolitan Athens). So being stuffed full of great food we decided to walk around a little bit. We went to a great new shop called Ohh, Boy! What a cute store! They are located at 585 Barber Street, Studio E., Athens, GA. They have vintage clothes, dishes and lots of great handmade items on consignment. Sara got a cute pizza pin and I bought this awesome Homer Laughlin creamer.Homer Laughlin was a china company and had many patterns before the Fiesta Pattern was created in 1935. The Homer Laughlin Pottery was founded in 1871 in East Liverpool, Ohio by two brothers. They made china at first and it wasn't until the late 1920's early 1930's that they started making pottery. The created many patterns and glazes which led to the now popular Fiesta Ware. One of the markings on Fiesta is HLC (Homer Laughlin China).
We then went to the Habitat for Humanity Thrift shop. There wasn't a lot to pick from. Seemed like the shelves were pretty empty but I did find this white pottery planter, embroidery piece (it is pretty ragged so will be made into something else) and two grass place mats. Not bad for under $5.
I also made a stop at the Salvation Army and found a couple of things. Some napkin rings that were very thrifty...only two of each kind but that works for me. Can you see the price?
The plates are a pale pink with a gray trim. A Very nice Pfaltzgraph pattern. I got two dinner plates and two salad plates for $3 total. These will go great with some vintage pink and gray plates I have.
So these are my Nifty Thrifty finds and some triva about Homer Laughlin company. Be sure to check out the other posts at Troy's, Diane's and Linda's to enjoy more Tuesday fun.
