Vintage China

Hello everyone,
     I have some vintage china that I wanted to share with you today.
   
I found this rack at the thrift store last week and I thought it would be a great way to display a few of my old vintage plates.
I also found this pretty little vintage enamel teapot at a second hand shop.
It looks so pretty with the pink tulips.
My cupboard full of vintage china in the sunroom.


I love this mauve and white transferware tea cup. It is not a color I see around here very often.

Well, that is a peek at some of my vintage china-hope you are not getting tired of my dishes yet because someday I am going to open my cupboard door and show you' the rest of the story'!

I am joining My Romantic Home for Show and Tell today and The Charm of Home for the Home Sweet Home party.

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

Oh my word, how lovely!

Each and every piece is remarkable.

LOVE that rack - I have a similar black one in my Tuscan kitchen.

Carolyn your china case in the sunroom made me shreik out loud and have my DH come running, haha.

Gulp, um, WOW! That is the prettiest collection EVER!

Your vintage cupboard is eye candy for me. Just amazingly beautiful. I always love the addition of lace and the little hanging tea-cups. Please show us more. I will never tire of your photos. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x4

Love the vintage china, Carolyn. Just love it. I'm so partial to pinks. The rack is great, too.

By the way, the last dish, in the back, on the right hand side, in the white rack is, I think, a "rose cascade" dish. I have an entire set and they are very old. The ones I bought, I was told, were a wedding gift in the early 1900s!
Thanks for sharing! Susan

What a great holder and a great way to display your vintage dishes, Carolyn! Nice thrift store find! I have two decorative black metal ones, but I haven't found a way to use them yet in our new kitchen. I'll have to play around with them one day.

I am in heaven looking at your dishes!!! My heart is pounding with delight. So very beautiful. The pink and white colors, the femininity,the romance,the beauty...divine.
I also really enjoy the lavender transferware. I have not found too many pieces like that either...so beautiful.

Dear Caroly,

Absolutely lovely,

Your pictures put a smile on my face. I love the idea with different patterns. Actually, I have purchased (new) Roy Kirkham fine bone tea china over the past decade. The big teacups with side plates with roses on them. All different. However, your vintage china is absolutely fabulous :-)

Wish you a lovely weekend, hug Hanne

Terry said...

I look at your site often but don't always comment. Your displays of so many dishes are just stunning...but where do you keep them all?

Lavender Cottage said...

Everything is lovely Carolyn. If you ever tire of the lavender chintz teacup, you know where to send it.

Katy Noelle said...

OH, my heart! I love china! and, there is no possible way for me to comment on it because I'll be here all morning. I get teased to death because I have too much china but I think that I just need to say 'phooey on them!' ;) and collect some more. =D

Also, in your previous post...I see that you're playing with photoshop - have fun! There's so much to learn but practice makes perfect and you (and I=]) seem to have no problem with that concept. (heh, heh, heh, heh, heh.)

Pretty, pretty images! =]

Von Herzen ♥ said...

Hallo liebe ;-)
ich musste erst mal hier anhalten - umschauen und ich finde deine Post nebst Bilder wirklich ganz toll gemacht – einfach perfekt! Ich danke dir für so viel Mühe und so lasse ich doch auch gleich mal liebe Grüße da und über einen Gegenbesuch würde ich mich natürlich auch sehr freuen ;-)

Nun haben wir schon Mitte Februar und die Faschingsfreunde kommen jetzt voll auf ihre Kosten. Allmählich scheint auch der Winter an Kraft zu verlieren, worüber wir sicher nicht böse sind, gelle.
Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes und gemütliches Wochenende mit glücklichen Stunden und einen guten Start in die neue Woche.

Ganz liebe Grüße und einen Hauch Frühlings Luft schicke ich mit VON HERZEN ♥

Oh my gosh, I am just trying to contain my jealousy right now. This is the most gorgeous, feminine, sweet collection of china I have ever seen! I want every single piece of it. Guess I am off to the antique mall... :) thanks for being inspiring!
