My Green and White China Display


I am entering in Show and Tell today over at My Romantic Home. So ,I was playing with my dishes again and thought I would share the new display with you.

It is harder to find the green and white dishes so I don't have a lot of them.I am surprised that there isn't a new line of this color but if there is, I haven't seen it.

This little gravy boat was a gift from a friend.

This is not the same color but close enough until I find something else.

This is the little cupboard that I display them in. I bought it at a yard sale several years ago. it was stained dark so I gave it a couple of coats of paint.

Well, that is my show and tell for today but there is lots more to see at Cindy's Romantic Home.

I am still working on my projects-stripping wallpaper(ugh!)and painting etc. I will show you when it is done but there is 20 double rolls of wallpaper to take of so it may be awhile!

I hope you all have a good weekend-here on the Island it is a long weekend as Monday is Islander day.

I have signed up for Pink Saturday so I will post later tomorrow.

Thank you for visiting me,

Hi Carolyn! I love when you play with dishes.

Green and white is unusual -- I loved seeing yours. I had a teal green and white piece of ironstone, a compote, that was my mother's. It's moved on.

I don't know why someone isn't making green and white transferware; it looks so fresh and beautiful!



The china looks so beautiful and your home always looks inviting. Thanks for sharing.

What a beautiful collection! I love the green and they look perfect in that cabinet! It's a long weekend here in the states too! It's President's Day weekend! I took today off also so I could have a four-day weekend!

I deleted you extra link. Thanks for letting me know!

I enjoyed seeing this unusual green color. You have a nice collection that goes so well in the white cupboard. I do not have many dishes and it is always fun to see your collections.
Thank you for sharing,

I love the china and I love the display case. My green tureen that I found in a charity shop would go well with your collection. Under other circumstances I would love to send it to you to add to your collection, but 1) it would be too heavy to post and 2) I want it for myself!!! Please know the thought was there, though! :) xx

Hi Carolyn,

I always enjoy looking at your beautiful china. I like the white blue/green terrine!! It is a very special colour. In Holland it is still cold and snowing. Today my youngest daughter and I will make some cupcakes. I bought a lovely book about baking recently, which we are trying out. One of these days I will show it on my blog. Have a happy Valentin's Day & Island Day!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Morning Carolyn

Green isn't a colour I would choose for my china but in your house and cabinet it looks lovely.

Have a good weekend, Jackie in UK.
