It's the beginning of March, and most of us have our minds on one thing! Spring of course!
I recently came across a set of brown transferware suitable for the season that I have been seeking for years!
Most of my table transferware collection is heavier in tone and subject, and in my eyes as least, less suitable for spring and summer. I am delighted by this delicate floral design and the way it works with pastels and white.
There was a huge cache of open stock pieces at Donna's place, Vintage & More (if you are local, there's a bunch still there). I picked around and gathered a set of each for four, berry and soup bowls, salad and dinner plates, cups and saucers in the best condition.
Oh, I do love English china!
I have always especially wanted the beautiful oversized teacups. So pretty, with scrumptious details!
Right at home in the dining room.
A little rustic tabletop vignette includes a ceramic hen & rooster and our dried Valentine roses (left to dry right in the bucket). The nest of eggs lends an invitation to spring. I love fresh flowers as much as anyone, but I rely a lot on everlastings year round.
I snapped up these earthy antique butter pats from Karin's booth at the same time. Chippy, crazed, and gorgeous. I love them as much for the graphic maker's marks on the backs.
All ready and awaiting Spring . . . .
Welcome to March!
I hope it has started out lovely for you!
