Blue & White Transferware Tablescape

Hello Everyone,
    It was a sunny but cold day here today but with February almost over, spring must be just around the corner! Well not quite- we did get about 15cm. of sparkly white snow yesterday and I am noticing that it is starting to accumulate. 
   Anyway, as many of you know I love transferware and although I have more red and white then any other color,I thought I would use my blue and white transferware today.

As usual I have a mix and match set.
I love soup tureens!
My husband gave me this teapot for my birthday a few years ago along with the creamer and sugar bowl.
I enjoy my tulip bouquets while waiting for our own to bloom.
My daughter had several of these teacups and passed them on to me.

I found 6 of these plates at a thrift shop.
These pretty plates came from Homesense which is the same as Home Goods in the U.S.



In the last couple of weeks I found a couple of lovely red and white transferware pieces that I am happy to have so I will have to show you those treasures soon.

Our bedroom is getting a makeover and when it is done I will also share those photos.However,it will be a week or so before it is done.
   I hear that March is coming in like a lamb tomorrow so I guess that means out like a lion!

I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

DO YOU COLLECT ONLY BLUE AND WHITE?? YOUR PIECES ARE LOVELY, I AM ALWAYS CURIOUS TO SEE IF PEOPLE CAN STICK TO JUST ONE TYPE OF COLLECTIBLE.

Nice to see your beautiful blues! You have a nice collection. I love a mix. There are so many wonderful patterns. I can only imagine your landscape. I'm sure it's incredibly beautiful.

This is a beautiful post. Love each and every piece in your collection of blue. I have a child's tea set in the blues, I must find it and make a post. Thanks for the inspiration.

What a delightful and beautiful tablescape you have created!

How exciting about your bedroom makeover, c an't WAIT for your reveal!

Today in FEBRUARY is was in the high 50s and I actually went to the mailbox barefoot. This is unheard of, I have cancelled March parties for snowstorms in past years, how WEIRD!!!!

What a very lovely collection. I especially love the teapot your husband gave you...it really is a stunning piece. I love a mixed set, it always shows so much character and interest and there is always a very unique piece that takes hold of my attention. And, the pink tulips are beautiful. I am looking forward to seeing your new red and white pieces too.
I hope you are having a lovely evening.

Lovely post - almost all of us are wild about blue and white and you have a marvelous collection! I absolutely love the teapot with the bird motif!!

Southerncook said...

Your blue and white table setting is absolutely gorgeous. I too have been bitten by the bug of collecting blue and white but it is a new collection and am trying to avoid collecting more dinner ware. I may cave.
