VTT - ROSES & SEGUES

Welcome back to another VTT! Make sure you visit Suzanne's blog to continue the tour of her fabulous laundry room makeover, and everyone else's goodies!


Me, I'm continuing my recent thrift store finds - some were on my Rednesday post yesterday. I'll start with this rosy platter that I got for a song - it says Nautilus on the back, which is Homer Laughlin.


Speaking of Homer Laughlin, I was ever so delighted this past Saturday to find this underplate at the same shop I bought the gravy boat a few months ago. They must have been delivered in different boxes or something, but now they're back together!
And, speaking of gravy underplates, (segue!) I got this one Saturday also - no name, but who cares!
. . . and, with another segue, here's a pretty gravy boat (or odd-shaped, oversized creamer) that made me bring it home!
Hey, I just realized that they all have roses on them! That's going in my title! We all love it when "everything's coming up roses", huh!

Pink roses! What's not to love! How lucky to find the matching under plate? If I were going to steal something from you it would be the gravy boat. Pretty and unusual but simple.

Brenda said...

All very pretty. I have a few tea cups and saucers with pink roses on them.

Lovely rose items! I have a cake plate very similar to your oval plate.

Those are so beautiful...and being a word geek...how can I not love a post where you used the word segue a bazillion times! lol

You were lucky in your great finds. I never seem to find anything as nice as you did. I guess I am going at the wrong time. Enjoyed your post.

How lucky are you to have found the underplate for that lovely gravy bowl-really a beautiful set has been restored to itself!
