Transfer Ware In Fall

I love brown transfer ware any time of year of course, but to me it seems especially suited to decorating in fall. My heart still beats faster when I see beautiful old dishes like that in a fall display.  So my own pieces get shown front row and center when the weather changes as well. 

I did a little recent dust off and straightening to the dining room shelves, and thought you might like a fresh look. 

I find over time that I acquire new favorites and tuck way older pieces for awhile or even pass a few things on. Things change gradually. One of my more recent additions is that small teapot on the top row. It was too whimsical and sweet for me to pass up.

Here's a closer look.

Another new piece is this little tea leaf pitcher I found not long ago. I have a thing for pitchers I guess! (understatement)

Mustard jars and marmalade pots are hard to resist
 when they turn up.

One of my favorite tureens, a gift from an old friend, comes out more this time of year. Great for soups and stews, but so cheery sitting on a shelf nearby.

And who doesn't need a few sturdy ironstone bowls to show and serve things inside in fall? The pitcher was a new find this past summer.

Just a bit of pattern among the white goes a long way for me. That Rosa pitcher by Meakin is a long time favorite of mine.

Chippy white textures go with everything!

The large transfer ware pitcher in the center here matches the small one shown on the hutch at the top of this post. I have a few more pieces in this set that I will pull out for displays this fall.

And of course, linens!

I found two of these grain sacks with graphics at a great price this summer. Great on a wall or thrown over a chair.

I also seem to use more silver this time of year. 

This small engraved compote from a pub is one of my favorites. Possibly from the famous one in Times Square.

So it's nice to start out with all my chickens and ducks in a row, so to speak. Surrounded by cozy things that I love.

I'm really enjoying all the online fall features! 

Looking forward to more.

Such a cozy time of year!

Happy days ahead!
