I bought this lovely set of Homer Laughlin "Virginia Rose" dishes at the thrift shop this evening.
Can't you imagine a family sitting down to Roast Chicken for Sunday dinner with these dishes? I just love them.... I had already purchased a few place settings a while ago, so was thrilled to be able to add a few more to my collection.
I keep imagining using them for an outdoor formal tea ....
In addition to the dishes,
I found another vintage linen to add to my...
... growing collection!
(I'm envisioning a quilt out of these embroidered linens some day, similar to this one featured on this blog.)
Love the detailed stitching,
and how cool is this - initials from 1957!
Picked up some rick rack, a few vintage buttons,
and this pitcher as well. Makes me thirsty for some lemonade!
