Beautiful Pink Flowers - Homer Laughlin Empire Green



Happy Pink Saturday


Look what I found at the thrift store this week.  Aren't they lovely.  They are Homer Laughin's Empire Green pattern.  When I saw the three pieces sitting there, I knew I wanted them.  I then checked the prices and I "double knew" I had to have them.  The large oval platter was 99 cents.  The vegetable bowl was $2.99 and the square plate was 69 cents.  Less than $ 5.00 for all five pieces.  They are in excellent condition.  I used the platter for fruit just last evening.  I think they will make great serving dishes.  I found the oval platter and serving bowl on Replacements, Ltd.  The Round Veggie Bowl was listed for $36.99 and the oval serving platter for $33.99.  I realize no one probably pays their prices but it did make me smile!

I thought the lovely pink flowers in the center of the dishes was just the thing for my Pink Saturday post this week.  Hope you enjoy looking at these beauties.  The quilt in the background was a gift from my friend, Susan.  The lovely fabrics just "sings" Springtime.  Hope you are experiencing Spring weather this lovely weekend.

For more Pink Saturday posts check out the list on Beverly's How Sweet the Sound.  Then "hop" on over to the Rose Chinz Cottage where you will find the most lovely things in pink.  There are flowers, tea cups, and lots more pinks.

Your dishes are lovely and, I agree, the price even made them better. I'm sure you will find lots of uses for them this spring. They would be pretty on the wall too.
Just wanted to comment on how pretty your apron is. I love the way you used the embroidered piece and added the pocket.
Thanks once again for visiting me.

You can't beat a bargain - especially when it's as pretty as this. Sorry to be so late visiting - I've ricked my neck & should badly, so having to stay off the computer as much as poss (didn't even turn it on Sunday & Monday) as typing is killing me. Happy PS anyway - will try to do better next weekend.
