For the Love of Transferware Teacups

Hello Everyone,
    As many of you know I love transferware dishes so I thought I would show you some of my different colored teacups today.

I collect mainly red and white transferware but can never resist the other colors when I see them at thrift shops etc.

Thes were a yardsale find.

Some of them are old and some are new but they are all pretty to me! Do you have a favorite color transferware pattern that you like to collect?
Today I am joining French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday and My Romantic Home for Show and Tell.
Thank you for visiting,

Hello Carolyn!
I don't have a favorite pattern of transferware, but I sure do admire it.
So many nice patterns and now different colors.
I'll have to keep an look out for cups and saucers.

You have some very nice pieces to enjoy. Beautiful pictures you share.
God bless,

Deb said...

I love the brown and cream ones. They are beautiful. Love your collection. Deb

Miss Kathy said...

Some breathtaking beauties, here! What lovely patterns evoking a sense of past generations and teatimes. Your photography is lovely - still can't get over those frosted roses!

May I also say how much I enjoy your music selection - the haunting, ancient sounds of Celtic song and instruments . . . my world . . .


CIELO said...

Carolyn... all your teacups are so so pretty! Can't decide which one is my favorite! They're all so pretty! And what a collection you must have!


Ps: give Lucas a big hug for me would you....

Love and blessings


Kathy said...

These are exquisite. I love Toile and in teacups - perfect! Beautiful post!
Hope you have a terrific Friday and weekend!


What a fabulous collection, I just love transferware so I really have no favorite I love them in all the colors! Maybe the little blue flowers are very specail. Thank you for sharing, wish I had some.
Have a super weekend. FABBY

I love transferware, all of it, most colours but am slightly enamoured with the blue. You have a lovely collection.

Rowan said...

You have some really pretty designs, I've always liked the red transfer ware but my absolute favourite of the ones you've shown is the cup with the little cabin in the snow. Is it a modern design or an old one?

Anna at the Doll House said...

I love them all Carolyn but my favourite transfer ware has to be blue and white or the last one in mauve - just gorgeous.


Jenny @ Simcoe Street said...

These are all so lovely!


Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I collect purple and white Carolyn. I love seeing new patterns (to me) and those tea cups looked so pretty!!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Carolyn, you have the BEST collection in transferware ever! They are all so pretty, it would be hard to pick a favorite but I do collect the red and white. ~Hugs, Patti

Linda said...

Happy Friday, Carolyn!

Well, you know that I love ALL transferware patterns - it is an addiction, I'm afraid. You have such unusual colours (I don't think I've ever before seen the teal, for example). My heart still belongs to the pink, though, which may be somewhat of a blessing in disguise as it helps me keep this passion under control. Maybe one day, we'll see your 'Teapots on Parade'... I'll be watching, my friend! Haha

Wishing you and yours a beautiful fall weekend,

Linda at Beautiful Ideas

Inspired by your fabulous collection, I purchased my first 2 Red Transfer cup and saucer sets a few weeks back...have yet to photograph and share them yet though.

Blessings Kelsie

PS: Love the frosted roses in your banner...just lovely.

It is impossible to choose when each and every one is so perfect.

I hope to see you later today at Pink Saturday.

Curtains In My Tree said...

I love transferware really any color however I have blue & white and the red & white which I call pink?

I have been looking for green or purple cups & saucers all summer , can only find them online for a arm & leg price LOL

yours are just wonderful and I want them all

Bernideen said...

they all are so lovely - I don't have any transfer ware but certainly admire your collection!

Madelief said...

Hi Carolyn,

Your collection of transferware looks beautiful. I don't really have a favourite pattern.

I wish you a happy weekend! We are off to the garden tomorrow, to empty the pots and plant some more bulbs.

Lieve groet,


Camille said...

I love the brown & cream and the blue especially, but all so pretty. It is such a delight to come to your blog. Such lovely photos always ~

podso said...

Two favorites: transferware, and teacups! As always, beautifully displayed and photographed and blogged by you! Thanks, and have a good weekend!

Linda J. said...

What a lovely collection!!

Jillian said...

OMGoodness, they are all lovely!! I was so surprise, though, to see your wintery scene set...the name is escaping me right now, but my father bought that set for my Nana back in the 60's when he got his first 'big' job!! I've never seen them anywhere else. I LOVE them, they mean so much to me. Would love to hear the story of how you came to have them!!

Cindy said...

They are all so lovely, I see them all the time at the thrift stores, but I don't buy them, I don't have any place to store them.
My favorite are the black transfer ware and the red transfer ware.
Have a good weekend,
Hugs, Cindy

Hartwood Roses said...

Why do we love transferware so much? There's no answer ... we just do. My favorites are the brown and mulberry patterns. Makes me swoon, they do.

Your collection is lovely. I've never seen the green before.

Claudia said...

Hi Carolyn - I love transferware, too. I don't have many pieces but I'd love to have more. Your cups are just lovely.

Good afternoon Carolyn
I am drooling over all of your transferware! My favourite is still red but your purple is a close second. I hope you are enjoying the warm Fall weather we are experiencing in Canada this year. Take care my East Coast friend!

Sooo beautiful! What a great collection you have.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Carolyn,
Wasn't it a beautiful day! I love all transferware colours but of course you know my favourite is the red and white. Lovely photos. I never see the lavender around anywhere. You have such a wonderful collection. Thank you for tea yesterday. It was lovely!


Carla said...

Your photos are gorgeous eye candy for a fellow transfer ware addict. Red and Blue are my 2 favorites. Since I have too many dishes already I have resisted adding new thanks for sharing yours!

Lounging with a Latte said...

Wow what an amazing collection of transfer ware. I enjoyed your photo shoot with all the delicate and pretty tea cups. As always I enjoyed my visit to your blog.

I agree! They are all so pretty!
I love the red and the blue ones and collect them myself but I do LOVE the ones in differnt colors. Maybe because they are a bit more rare.
The first 2 that you showed are exquisite!!

How is your grandson?

I visit often, but don't often leave a comment. These cups have sat on my mind since you posted them. I just love them and had no idea there were so many colors. Now I am on the search. Thanks for sharing them.

Chris said...

Wow, Carolyn, what a beautiful collection of transferware you have. You must have been collecting it for years and years. I'm from Northern Ontario. I found and am now following you through Show And Tell Friday, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Dear Carolyn, your teacups are all lovely and as usual your photos fills my heart with peace and joy. I didn't know about transferware on the cups! I'd like to try it! Greetings from Italy!
