Brown and White Transferware Tablescape


Hello,


Come on in and join me indoors today as it is too rainy to be out in the garden today. I am using my brown and white transferware today as it seems like a good choice for a more fall like day.



Because it is dull outdoors the light isn't great as I don't use a flash. today we are in our library-living room that got a makeover last winter as some of you may remember. I am still on the lookout for a table for this room -hopefully soon. If you would like to see the makeover for this room click here.



I picked a bouquet from the garden for our table.



I love this covered bowl that came from tjmaxx a couple of years ago.




This transferware pitcher came from Coulson's in Summerside.



I really love this old transferware bowl that came from an antique mall in Maine.



I have an assortment of patterns that I mix and match.



I have a mix and match cup and saucer but I don't think anyone will mind.



Love the little teapot from Winner's which is the Canadian version of Winner's so sometimes they have the same products.








There are lots of hydrangeas in bloom and the obedient plant is also blooming now. I think they compliment each other nicely!

Guess by now you can tell I love this old chipped bowl!



The antique lace tablecloth came from Carriage House Antiques in Victoria by the Sea (local).



And before you go I have a bouquet from the garden for you ! The pitcher also came from tjmaxx.


I am joining in with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday -hope to see you there!

I've come to think that brown transferware is my favorite. It's so full of warmth and character. I, too, like to mix and match. Makes things much more interesting. I'm amazed at the beautiful pieces you've found at TJMax. Makes me think I don't stop in enough.
This is a stunning table. Thanks for the cup of tea.

Oh my, Carolyn. That was absolutely delightful. The brown and white transferware is quite attractive. I'm not too familiar with that color combo but it's very nice. Great job! Susan

Mix and match is the way to go. There are too many beautiful patterns in brown and white transferware to set a complete table with one pattern. You did a lovely job.
