Transferware and a Giveaway!


                                                                             

                                                       

                                                                                                                                                                   


                                                                               
                                             I hope you are enjoying a beautiful sunny week as
                                     we are here.
                                                                                 
                                       Today I am featuring some of my transferware
                                        collection . As many of you know I can't seem
                                       to resist it in any color.

                                                                 



                                                                         


                                     Family room china cupboard displays my
                                    brown and white collection.
                                                                                                                                                   

                                Red and white has been my main collection and is
                               always on display in the dining area of our kitchen.
        




                          These are on display in our library now.

                                                                         




                                                  I love to use them in tablescapes.
                                                                           

                                 A collection of brown and white in our family room.
                                                                           

                          Some of my collection is very old and others are new.

                                                                       
                                                 Soft and pretty.                                    
                                                 Black and white transferware.

                                                             
                                               My black and white transferware at Christmas.
                               

                     Now for the good news Nancy at Nancy's Daily Dish has kindly offered a $50.
                     gift card to be used in her online shop where she has the most amazing
                    collection of beautiful transferware I have ever seen. Nancy also has a beautiful
                     online jewelry shop for you to check out.
                       Wait there is more.......if you would like to purchase anything from her
                      online shop just use the code AIKENHOUSE and you will get a 15%
                      discount!
                           Also, Nancy has a beautiful blog where you can see how she artfully
                          displays her transferware as in the photo above taken in her bedroom.
                          I love that collection over her bed!

                                    Sorry for the strange way the photos went on today ~ something to do
                                   with copy and paste that I can't center them.

                                                                                 Thank you for visiting,

                                                                                                         Carolyn

You have a beautiful collection of transferware, Carolyn! You always display it so beautifully, too. I really love the color in the third picture down. I'd love to find some plates in that color to hang around a mirror in our master bedroom.

I would love to win this for a wedding gift I have coming up!

You have such a beautiful collection of transferware, Carolyn. All those pieces are so very charming. I think that is what lures me to it; the charm and feel of yesteryear. Enjoy this beautiful day!

Janet said...

Hi Carolyn ....Wonderful post as always ...I too love transfer ware ...my Husband and I in the 1970's really had no money but there was a sale at a shop in England , where I come from, that was closing down and there were the most wonderful blue and white transfer dishes ..with English churches on ...we bought some every week till they finally closed ..still have them today ...
Thanks for the time and care you take in posting wonderful inspirational photos and words to lift our day ...Your friend Janet of Maisonvogue

Oh Carolyn,
I do love your collection of gorgeous transferware! So spectacular! I have started a collection of Mason's Vista and Friendly Village but you have some truly beautiful pieces and such a variety. I especially like your blue and white teapot. I simply can't believe Nancy's garage! Wow! That is amazing! Best of luck to all of the participants in Nancy's Gift Card giveaway! Thank you for sharing such beauty. Have
a wonderful week. Karen

Thank You!

I'm loving transferware MORE and more as I see it on your blog! My mom used to collect the blues. I myself, love the reds and now I think I may start looking for some pieces when I go antiquing, as am decorating more and more in my home with pops of red. Thank you for your beautiful blog! Love it.

Rita C. said...

Oh my, how beautiful! I have a very small collection of brown transferware, along with a few pieces of black, blue, red & mulberry. Mine pales in comparison, but what a wonderful gesture - thank you Nancy's Daily Dish & Carolyn for the opportunity!

Beautiful collections, Carolyn, and you have lovely spaces to display the pieces you have. Thanks for sharing details of your collection.

I would like to start a red transferware collection...the red ones are my favorite, they are very hard to find around here..

Rhonda said...

Such a stunning collection and variety of transferware! I thought that the two colors I have started collecting would be enough (but I really love the purple!). However, you may have changed my mind with your very artfully arranged displays! I enjoyed your post!

Nancy @ Nancy's Daily Dish said...

Carolyn, Your collections are just beautiful! Every time I visit your blog I am just blow away by your gardens, your transferware and your beautiful way of display. You are so talented and so blessed to have such a lovely home and gardens. Thank you for always sharing these with your readers.

Thank you too for the lovely post and feature!

Please, please, please put my name into the hat! Thanks! Susan

What a beautiful collection. Where do you store all of your transfer ware. Love all your displays. Please enter me in your give away.

GRC.Ltd.design@gmail.com said...

Love the B&W Christmas display paired with silver & mercury glass! Stunning!

Cindy A. said...

I am in sooooo much trouble now! I shouldn't have looked at Miss Nancy's site because I too love transfer ware and with just a few clicks I found way too many pieces that I think I can't live without. Of course, my husband would readily disagree. I think my love of these designs began with my grandmother's Blue Willow china, which my sister snagged unfortunately. I have my own set now and have added other blue/white sets over the years. I only have a few pieces of the other colors, but after seeing all your pieces and discovering Miss Nancy's site, I get the feeling that I might be adding more than one or two to my collection. Thanks so much for sharing!

Mary said...

I too am a fan of The Daily Dish, and have bought pieces from Nancy before. I have had my eye on a Jenny Lind piece to add to my collection. Thank you for your inspiring site, your photos are wonderful.

Audrey said...

Goodness, Carolyn, you have SO many beautiful collections! I must admit that I *gasped* when I saw Nancy's garage, though!

Blessings,

Catherine said...

All of your collections are so lovely... I collect any blue & white I can found.. has become an obsession! ;)<3

Stacey said...

Red and white transferware is my absolute favorite. I have quite a few pieces but nothing compared to yours. If I won this gift, I'd definitely try to get one of the pretty platters that Nancy sells. I don't have one of those. :)

Thank you to you and Nancy both for this generous chance.
