In A Victorian Mood

I like the versatility of brown transfer ware. Making its appearance in autumn, for the most part, I've been seeing the lighter patterned versions around here and there lately and wanted to get mine out for awhile.

Maybe it's the sepia overtones, or the victorian lace panel that I'm using, but I'm getting that time travel feeling with this vignette.

Old brown pages always seem at home in the mix too. It all makes me ready to hear a creak on the old wooden stairs. But I don't have any.

An antique flower frog, a museum painting postcard, and a sea star keep company in a bowl.

Thanks for stopping by!
Ciao! for now!

OH, your pictures have brought back bitter sweet memories. My mother in law had a lovely set of dishes that were brown transfer ware-- I wish I had gotten them when given the chance. But no, they were donated to charity. I'm certain someone got them who really needed them, and they are used and appreciated everyday.

Your photos are lovely-- and yes, they remind me of traveling back in time, too! Pat
