Teal Transferware Christmas Tea





            Hello everyone,

                 As many of you know I love dishes
                     of all shapes and colors but I especially
                            love transferware of all colors and the older
                         it looks all the better I like it often times. 
                   I don't often see this teal transferware
                              around here so my collection of it is smaller.




    A few touches of Christmas are
showing up in the kitchen.


                    The only marking on the 
                                      bottom of these teacups is England.
 

 A trip to an antique mall near
          Kennebunkport  Mainea few years
ago scored a cart full of old
      tranferware for next to nothing.



              I have a small and a large soup
tureen in this pattern


                                                                   I love these handmade sugar
                                                                   cookies that are way to pretty
                                                                   to eat! No, I didn't make them.
     






                         Christmas is going to be here
                         before we know it so we will
                                   make a trip to the attic soon to take
                        our tubs etc. of decorations.

                                                      To see more of my teal green and white transferware
collection go here.


                                                              A couple of days ago on a walk
                                                                         up our road I picked a small
                                                                         bouquet of flowers......not
                                                                         something that you usually see
                                                                         on Prince Edward Island this time
                                                                         of the year. However, today at times
                                                                         there were a few snow flurries so we
                                                                         know winter is on it's way!

                                                                         Happy Thanksgiving to all my
                                                                         American friends!

                                                                                          Take care,
                                                                                                 Carolyn

The green and white transfer ware is very pretty and is nice for Christmas. How fun to find those late blooms along the road. I've seen a few as well but didn't pick them. We had a dusting of snow the last two nights but they both melted. Christmas is coming!

Love it all, Carolyn!
That silvery mason jar is precious, too.
Wishing you a beautiful day,

Beautiful! I have only one teal bread and butter plate. I have only found the one in my travels.
Enjoy your day!

I must tell you that I love your collectibles as well as your excellent photography and take joy in seeing your spectacular location. Your work is inspiring. A nice way to begin my Thanksgiving morning.

Having lost my home to a tornado the day after Christmas of last year along with many collectibles amassed over a 50 year period, I am thankful to be alive and to be able to prepare a holiday meal for my family. I look forward to more of your lovely posts.

Blessings,
Sandi

Always a joy to visit your blog ,Carolyn. Something about the sea, the east coast people, your gorgeous Victorian home, Maud Montgomery and the simple life of the Atlantic folks. Wish I was there! Still trying to convince my husband to move down to the East Coast : ) Thanks for sharing and keeping my dreams awake.
