transferware, limoges, & colors of a vintage winter



The holidays usually unfurl pretty gradually for me. Little tokens of the biggest fest of the year are already appearing here and there around our place. Some folks can't abide it, but the season starts earlier for retailers and bloggers!  




I love white of course. (Like you didn't know that. . .) But I also love soft greys with gold and pastels in their quiet measures. (My eucalyptus sprigs have dried to about the perfect shade of green for me.)









And plenty of silver! I plopped a little tree inside of this trophy just to see how it looks, so I guess it's official. Decorating has begun!




Brown transferware too!




Here's a new jug that I have added to my collection. A few evergreens would be perfect tucked into it. Don't you love the lettering?




I love its pretty maker's mark too. . . .




You can see its smaller size next to my Rosepoint sugar bowl. It fits right in like it was always there!










I already have a little pile of Shiny Brites in all the right colors that have been hidden away in plain sight for the last year on the sideboard. I'm in love with that wash of merest pink in the one with the stripe.














And talk about serendipity! A new vintage Limoges teacup I recently found combines all of the hues of a perfect vintage winter!




I would love a complete set of this pattern for the table! But I'll just have to add this one to the rest of my wishful dreams. . . .





Whether you launch early or late, I hope you are enjoying a few of your own wishes and dreams for the season!

Happy White Wednesday!

Your new Limoges cup is pristine. I want it! Love all the gentle colors you surround yourself with. That pitcher in the first photo steals my heart. Sigh.

Everything looks lovely.

I am going simple with decor this year for Christmas and had planned to put ornaments in a bowl. I love how yours look.

I love these soft colours with with blush of pink. The new cup and saucer is very pretty along with your bowl of shiny brites. I haven't started decorating yet. Can't get into the mood just yet. Beautiful pictures Jacqueline.

Hello Jacqueline at Cabin and Cottage, What a beautiful Blog. I would like to know how do I share your Blog photos on a Facebook Page that I have? It is a Home & Garden Page on FB called Dreaming Of A Coastal Cottage.
I always see so many beautiful photos on these Blogs and never share them because I don't know the proper way to share from a Blog to a Facebook Page. I was told to ask you because you are very knowledgeable about this kind of thing. :)
Thanks Deanae

I am in love with the juice jug and teacup. I love all the soft hues.
I have decided to decorate completely different this year with lots of white and silver. I'll maybe put in a little soft blue. I am sorting through the lots of boxes of decorations at the moment. No red and green will be in sight this year. I've even spray painted my green trees white. x

Shiny Brights and a Limoges cup are just sweet and beautiful. Have you seen the December issue of Romantic Homes, so much white there I thought of you. Loving white, but not sure I could convince my "live-in gardener".

The Charm of Home said...

Your vintage ornaments are the best colors. That teacup is divine! Thanks for sharing.

Jacqueline,
Love, LOVE, L O V E your subtle hues within your china patterns, dear friend!!! Those shiny brites made my heart skip a beat!!! Exquisite!
Like you, dear one, I am always hopeful to find a set of china finds, but still get a thrill from the singular finds!
Gorgeous post!!!
Fondly,
Pat
