Christmas Toile & Transferware

Hello everyone,
 I hope your week is going well !
Today I thought I would share some photos I took here over
the past few years of some ways I have used toile and
transferware around our home and  garden cottage.

The guest room above has a mix of blue and white ~ fabrics
and wallpaper.Just a small feather wreath and a feather tree
give it a little touch of Christmas.


                                     A shot from a few years ago displaying my teal green and white
                                  Red and white transferware is perfect for all the seasons!

                                      Taupe and white toile quilt and pillow add a French Country look to our
                                       little garden cottage.
                                             This red and white quilt  found a home in our master bedroom.

                                   I always have touches of red and white around the kitchen.

Love my toile santa with my transferware dishes.

                                             A different look in the cottage a few years ago.
                                                              and at night

                                                                   our kitchen
Ready for tea?


                                                Toile wallpaper in our bathroom ~ our home was built almost
                                                100 years ago so if it looks old it is!!!

                                   Just a small sample of some of the toile and transferware around our home.

                                      Enjoy your weekend!

Toile is my favorite! I had a beautiful blue toile wallpaper in the bathroom of our old house. I love to collect the red toile dishes. Have a lovely week.

Hello Carolyn, I want to thank you for my beautiful book that I won recently. It is so dreamy and I recommend everyone to order your book. They shall not be disappointed! Hope it begins to warm up in Calgary as our weather is so cold that we have made the news! Artic weather would be a relief for us. Have a lovely weekend.

Every nook and cranny is beautiful. I love the white in every room! I absolutely love the small buffet! I could make my home anywhere there! Sweet.

Hi Carolyn, I loved visiting around your home today. I have to say the red transfer-ware is my favourite and just the perfect time of year to display it at a festive time. Your kitchen looks lovely, and I especially like the way you displayed the plates. Yes, things take on a few changes from year to year. Enjoy your weekend
