Where has July gone???

Another Tea Cup Tuesday has arrived.  I have been enjoying all the flowers in my yard so decided to feature another flower from my garden this week.  My Black Eyed Susans  (Rudbeckia for the purists out there) are very abundant this year.

When I was in the shop this week I noticed some dishes that were the color of the flowers and decided to feature them this week.  Normally I show porcelain or bone china cups and saucers but this time I decided to show some old fashioned dinnerware.  You have heard of fiesta but are you aware that Homer Laughlin also produced another set of dishes in the same colors but it is called Riviera.  A different look  that I happen to like.  And because it is a fairly common color I found another set of dishes by Homer Laughlin in the same color way but a different style entirely.  It is called Rhythm.

The creamer and bowl and platter are Rhythm.  The cup and saucer and small plate are Riviera.



The plate styles are very different since they aren't round.  The pattern comes in a number of colors as fiesta did so you can mix or match.  We like this style so much that we have our own set although ours is only green. Maybe I will show you all some time.

Thanks for visiting my site today.......

After you visit my post today be sure to check out  these other tea posts.

I like your dishes, Beth. I have lots of rudbeckias too. As summer winds down they seem to be the predominant flower in my gardens.

Hi Beth,
The dishes are vibrant just like the flowers. Very nice! Yellow is such a happy colour. Thank you for sharing and coming by to have tea with me.

Blessings,

Very interesting about the Laughlin. The yellow is so bright and definitely would be a lift on a summer day.
