We are having some lovely weather this
week with sunshine and a hint of spring
in the air.......perfect for long walks outdoors.
I have been in painting mode lately and eager
to do my spring cleaning before garden season.
So,one of yesterdays projects was
to remove the Friendly Village dishes
that I enjoy in winter from the cupboard in
the cupboard in the library.
I wanted to give the cupboard a fresh coat
of paint going with a creamy white paint
I have been noticing that my collection of
brown & white transferware has grown ...
not sure how that happened.Ha!Ha!
Anyway, I thought another cupboard
was needed to display it all.
As always, I have a mix of new & old.
A birthday gift from a friend
a few years ago.
scenes depicted on
locally but a few like the soup tureen
above came from antique malls in Maine.
tea set a few times~ it is Brown Botanical
by Skye McGhie. It is a newer and I think
I have seen it on ebay.
I will probably do a little more
fluffing with the display but
my next project is repainting
my other old cupboard full
of more brown & white transferware.
Well, thanks for stopping by and I
have another paint brush if you
would like to hang around!
