Dots Take Boston!

HLCCA conference goers had a wonderful surprise waiting for us when we visited the Homer Laughlin China Outlet earlier this month: lapis salad plates and mugs decalled in polka dots! I shipped mine home to avoid airline issues, and it was a challenge to wait out the arrival of that box.

These lapis pieces are a wonderful next chapter in the dot saga started by HLCCA when it offered white and scarlet pieces at the Nashville conference in 2010.

I decided to punch up the color on the table with the small marigold rice bowls I also found at the outlet.

Thanks for this Fiesta surprise, HLC! You knew just what would make our blue stripe pieces even more fun.

  3. I love those fun polka dot plates and I adore dotted china. My daughter has a polka dot tea cups and saucers and are adorable too! Loving the linen and the lovely hydrangeas too. Hugs,

  4. Great new dots 'scape, Daphne! They look great on your Boston cloth. The reds and blues really pop!
