Beyond Mexicana

Blogroll Me!
Homer Laughlin made some dinnerware in the 50's called Conchita which is a form of my name Concha. One of my grandmothers called me Conchita when she was being playful with me. I have only seen the pattern in books, and antique malls. This photo came from a website that features a book called Beyond Mexicana by Melicety Wilcox Deatherage. Something that is unique about our local library is that they purchase many of the books that patrons order through interlibrary loan. I ordered this book from Columbus Metropolitan Library this morning. The Homer Laughlin collector books are very popular and so I have every confidence that Ms Deatherage's book will be part of CML's permanant collection.
