A Valentines Story........in Dishes.

A few months ago, I found this beautiful vintage set of Homer Laughlin Marigold shape dishes.  The decoration is a pattern called Minuet, sometimes also called Silhouette.  I always assumed it was just one decal, but it appears to be several, instead.   The intriguing part, is that if you look at the dishes in a certain order.... they tell a story.


Once upon a time, there was a handsome young man who met a lovely young lady.

The young man was instantly smitten. Fortunately, the young lady was as kind as she was beautiful.

 He spent as much time as he could with her, wooing her with small gifts and flowers. The longer he was with her, the more sure he was of his growing feelings for the lovely lady...

 ...and he decided to share his feelings, and ask the lovely lady to share his life...

She readily agreed, and they lived happily ever after......

Happy Valentines Day to you, with love from CaraFaye...


  1. Oh precious, Elaine! I never knew that those dishes told a courtship story. What a perfect thing to share today!

  2. Perfect love story! Love your table!

  3. That was such a cute story. That makes the dishes even more special. Great 'scape, Elaine.
