Here are the rest of the items that I picked up at yard sales and thrift shops last weekend.

A pretty, chipped, serving dish. I've been told that this pattern is a Homer Loughlin Harlequin, but I haven't seen any of that pattern in this shape. If you have a clue, let me know, because I have four small plates in the same pattern. Also, a Bombay Company swag.

A green metal mug tree, that I'll probably use to hang tags or ornaments on, and an Anchor Hocking Wexford wine or liquor bottle that's 12" tall, to add to my Wexford collection.

A Red Rose Tea/Wade Pottery "January" snowman figurine (1-6/8"). I have the blue "July" Uncle Sam figure, and Katherine has some of the older animal ones. Did you know . . . that the bottom of the figurines are ridged (or graded) to strike matches on? How thrifty!

A pretty "shabby" fake birdcage that has a door that opens, and the top opens, too. I need to decide what to do with it now!

Last is this lovely vase with a girl feeding a bird. There's no sticker so I don't know who made it - Lefton, maybe? The vase is kinda in the shape of an open book.

Sue, your pretty blue bowl IS by Homer Laughlin, but the pattern is Riviera. The little snowman is a cutie...I've not seen him before. Great finds!!!

I am loving the blue and I agree that it is HL. So many wonderful finds :)

I was so excited when I saw the blue plate! But I see that Sherri beat me to it - to telling you what kind of plate it is.

I have a lot of these plates in blue and yellow. When I was growing up, my grandparents had a vacation cabin that we would visit, and my grandma had these plates there. Pale yellow, pale green, the blue, white, the brighter yellow. I think they are beautiful.
