Do you ever just stop and do a double-take when you are looking at a magazine because you see something familiar?
I do. And I would bet you do too.
Recently, I was casually looking at a Country Living and suddenly came to a halt when I saw this:
Yep. Homer Laughlin Currier and Ives red transferware.
Just like mine. Well, actually I do not have the teapot.
But I do have 3 sets of double-handled cream soup bowls that are not included in those shown above. Sweet!
Here is an old poor quality photo of mine mixed in with a few other things. They are not REALLY Christmas dishes but I always thought they looked especially pretty at Christmas. I guess someone else thought so too! Seeing the magazine photo makes me happy I did not sell mine. At least not yet. Which reminds me….I need to sell more dishes.
Mine are packed away for now, so I won’t use them this Christmas. Sometimes life just gets a little hectic.
