Red & White Transferware in the Kitchen



                                                           Hello everyone,
              I hope your week went well.We have had some beautiful sunny days this week so I spent some time taking some photos. Since our garden is well past it's prime I seem to be moving back indoors a bit more. I loved seeing the sun shining into the kitchen and though you might enjoy seeing some red and white touches in the kitchen as well as my red and white transferware.
                        I know I shared some photos of the bay area last week but another view can't hurt.
                      Our home was built about 95 years ago and the hardwood floors are original.The cupboards
                      are not-they were built about 8 years ago
          Peeking inside the cupboards at my collection of red and white transferware that I have been           collecting over the past several years and are a mix of patterns both new and old.


                                                                         
                                                                 



 
                                                      Vista platters by Mason.

                               Some of the red and white willow china in this cupboard is very old and belonged
                            to my husbands great aunt.I was thrilled to have it given to me by my sister in law.                          
                              Covered bowls are hard to find here so this was a lucky find.

       Hope you enjoyed a peek into my cupboards today.
 Tomorrow, I am off early in the morning for our 70 mile yardsale with over 150 vendors covering a distance
 of ...... well 70 miles! There will be lots of shoppers and the weather looks very promising. I am packing a picnic lunch and taking my camera too. Now if you see any red and white transferware........don't touch it!!!!! Ha! Ha!

Hope you have a fun weekend!

Carolyn

I've always loved your built-in cupboards. So gorgeous. Your china is lovely and I especially love the covered dishes. I'm wondering what that is that hangs on the wall near the window? Does it hold tea-cups? Deb

Beautiful collection, Carolyn. Your images with the sunshine streaming into the room are lovely.

I love your beautiful collection of red transferware. I have a few pieces, and we saw a set on our last trip north. But alas, it was too expensive. I think I love the red, just a tad more then the blue ;-)

hello, Carolyn!
loved seeing your red & white collection - I was very blessed to be the recipient of my great-aunt Polly's "everyday" china, which was Masons Ironstone from England - I have the covered tureen, several serving pieces, and a service for eight - "back in the day" when everyone smoked, Aunt Polly even had an ashtray in her pattern!
really enjoyed your blog-
all best, from Fort Worth

All so lovely. Look forward to seeing if you buy anything on your 70 mile yard sale, it sounds such fun.Thank you for the wholemeal scone recipe in your previous entry. Shirley N.Z.

It's always a treat to see your red and white, Carolyn. You have so many pretty pieces. I was going to get my DIL to look for red and white for me since I didn't make it out to the "Sale." You probably got to them first though. The weather was fantastic for it, wasn't it? Enjoy your first week of Autumn. Blessings, Sandi

Cindy said...

Your eating area is gorgeous! I love the red and white quilt, chair seats and the fabulous transfer ware. Gorgeous! Your home is always very inviting looking.
Hugs, Cindy
