My Thrift Store Find

 Taking a brief intermission from updates from Dad and Mom's trip, here's a piece of joy for Julie.
 I love the yellow roses.  There were only four bowls and four plates. 
But it was an easy decision to buy them since they were .99 cents and were made by Canonsburg Pottery.  Actually, I would never have bought them except for that last fact.  Since we lived in Canonsburg for 5 years, this is a fun and lovely piece of memorabilia from that much-loved town.  The pottery closed in the 70's, but made dinnerware for almost 80 years there.  I believe this pattern was an earlier one, maybe made in the 20's or 30's.  Not sure.  Excited to own my own little piece of that history.
